On tap at Hamilton Family Brewery in Rancho Cucamonga, CA.

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of grain, earth, watermelon juice, watermelon rind, and watermelon candy aromas. Taste is much the same with watermelon candy and watermelon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice mix of real watermelon and watermelon candy aspects.

Serving type: on tap.

Pours an opaque golden hue with no visible head (though this may be in part to the server who poured it). Extreme watermelon scents along with fruitiness. Taste is of watermelon juice, wow. Definitely could have had a lot more carbonation in my opinion.
