This is a very flavorful and refreshing light lager beer. Enjoyed it with a great meal in Asheville.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Bright,, slightly cloudy light yellow color with little head or lacing, but effervescent. Grassy, herbal smell and taste with flavors of fresh watermelon. Definitely would drink again.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy pale yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and moderate pale golden yellow + bright yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall soapy sudsy foamy off-white head that quickly reduces to a small patch of very thin film and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of freshly cut watermelon over the top of just shy of moderate aromas of bready + grainy malts with corn adjuncts and a light to moderate amount of corn adjunct sweetness. Very light aromas of lager yeast and lime citrus.

T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of bready + grainy malts with corn adjuncts and a light to moderate amount of corn adjunct sweetness. That is followed by a light presence of lager yeast. Finally there are light to moderate flavors of fresh watermelon and hints of lime citrus. The beer has a clean finish.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Crisp upfront with a clean finish.

O: Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol and a crisp + refreshing mouthfeel. Enjoyable classic AAL with a nice presence of watermelon which does not taste artificial (or like a Jolly Rancher).
