Strangely there is no date listed on the bottom of this can like there was on the previous two in the pack.

Appearance: The body is a hazy bronze tea-colored beer. It has a medium-stature fluffy white head.

Aroma: There is an aroma of honeydew and a light bit of cabbage.

Taste; There is a candy-like sweetness to the beer. There is a touch of honeydew flavor and some very faint light caramel sweetness. It is important to point out the lightness of the caramelization flavor because it lacks much of the melanoidin oft found in similar beers. The overall flavor experience is very candy-like.

Mouthfeel: It is light bodied but tilts moderately towards medium. It has good carbonation which highlights the gentle flavors of the beer.

Overall: The beer calls itself "COTTON CANDY SALT WATER TAFFY" which isn't a thing but rather two. It doesn't really taste like either but instead tastes a bit like honeydew flavored rock candy. The overall sweet flavor is very pleasant. It is a bit strange when it comes to the appearance and the aroma but the flavor and texture of the beer are well worth the experience. I recommend trying it if you have a very hardy sweet tooth and I would gladly enjoy this beer again. My favorite part of the beer was the light honeydew melon flavor which joined the candy-like sweetness to create a memorable beer. This would be a nice beer to enjoy on a hot day in the sun.
