Axe Head Watermelon

Pours a hot pink color, mostly opaque, leaves no head whatsoever

Aroma is a strong watermelon jolly rancher smell, stronger than expected

Tastes as it smells, a very forward watermelon jolly rancher flavor, with a malt ending not similar to the typical 4loco

Feel is light, with little body. Does not feel heavy to drink in the least.

Overall, better than most flavored malt beverages. 3/10 compared to most beers, 8/10 in the realm of flavored malt beverages.

The following review is in support of The CANQuest (tm), endorsed by lovers of fermented beverages in aluminum cylinders everywhere. Also, being that today is 4-20/4:20 Day & I grew up at 420 West Walnut Street, I am celebrating in my own way. Today is hereby also designated as Watermelon Wednesday!

From the CAN: "[CAN]tains Alcohol [-] [CAN]tains Schisandra Berry & Damiana Leaf Extracts"; "Union Made".

A previous reviewer questioned "what gets into some people", perhaps as a rhetorical question, but I CAN promise you, there is no better inhuman beverage for your CANsumption than a liquid produced by the MInhas family. I was once as human as you, but after repeated indulgences of products from Minhas Craft Brewery, Mountain Crest Brewery & Axe Head, I have been transformed into The Cyberleader! My metallic outer shell remains in an upstairs closet to hide me from Doctor Who & the Torchwood people, but any time that I am about to Crack! open an aluminum cylinder filled with one of their CANcoctions, I suit up for proper enjoyment. I would caution you that such beverages are unfit for human CANsumption, but now that I am no longer human, my enjoyment is boundless.

I readied my largest drinking vessel since, at 24-fl. oz., this was going to require time & effort as well as a large glass into which it would be deCANted. The Crack! was appropriately loud, given the size of the CANtainer unit. UNIT!?! Do NOT mention that acronym in my exalted presence! I Glugged as much into my glass as I could, to try and take my CANputer mind off of the thought that they may be tracking me. It fizzed and popped and created a finger of pop-like foam that quickly dissipated. Color was an unnatural light, rose pink (SRM = N/A) with such clarity that I could see into other universes. Nose smelled of dry cleaning plants, plastics factories, chewed pink bubble gum and Jolly [CAN]cher watermelon CANdies. My favorites! Prior to my being subsumed, I used to cringe at the though, but now I embrace the coming liquid as it courses through my circuitry. Mouthfeel registered as thin, but quite hot with a burning fusel alcohol quality. There was little to no attempt made to hide its high-gravity origins. The taste had an odd sugary flavor that helped to offset the tart, slightly sour flavor of whatever had been utilized to mimic the taste of watermelon. I feel certain in my assertion that no watermelons were harmed or damaged in the creation of this beverage. Warming, because even I CANnot get this inside of my CANponents quickly enough, the alcohol really begins to show itself. Rippling waves shimmer on its pink surface as evaporation takes place in Earth's atmosphere. I applaud you humans who indulged before me! This is wonderful malt beverage & should be shared widely. I find that some of our best recruits come from alleyways, behind establishments that vend such liquids and other places that cater to a discerning CANsumer. What was left of my human tongue seems to have burnt away, so I will CANtinue the rest of this review in a real-time feed directly to this website. I have placed the reminder of the beverage inside of the aluminum cylinder back into the refrigeration unit to maintain a coolness. It has been brought to my attention that the shimmering that I noted earlier could be a warning sign of it reaching its flashpoint, followed by spontaneous CANbustion! I do not wish to draw undue attention to the goings-on here & so it has been re-placed into the refrigeration unit to maintain stability. Speaking of which, my onboard meter shows that I am experiencing a heavy list to starboard, although my ocular sensors are not registering this. Now, I am also beginning to experience a pitch & yaw which is rather unprecedented in this CANfiguration. I am nearing the finish of the liquid in my glass, so I am going to CANmence corrective actions to get right. The finish of the room-temperature liquid was hot, burning & slightly sour. The version that I removed from the refrigeration unit was more palatable and therefore, the recommended serving style for human entities. In sum, this is a highly volatile liquid which is apparently prone to spontaneous CANbustion & should therefore be kept & CANsumed as cold & as quickly as possible. I must close here as I hear the TARDIS' arrival in my basement!

L - Clear and pink. No head.
S - Candy fruit and rubber. Not supplied for a direct comparison right now, but probably not unlike watermelon hard candy.
T - Lots of extremely sweet fake watermelon flavor and harsh alcohol.
O - I don't know what gets into some people.
