Happy #WatermelonWednesday ! Remember, beat the camel & #BumptheHump ! I have not partaken of a Minhas gem in a while & this seems like a Golden CANportunity to do just that. Ah, the inherent joys of The CANQuest (tm) …

From the CAN: "All trademarks and designs are the property of Mountain Crest SRL"; "Malt Beverage with Artificial Flavor and Certified Color FD&C Red #40".

Boy, do the Minhas kids know how to take credit & produce a fine "beverage" or what? I have had Ravinder & Xxxx Minhas on my radar for some time, mainly thanks to The CANQuest (tm).

This was 24-fl. oz. or 1 pint, 8 fl. oz. of fun upCANming as I Crack!ed open its vent. I was careful during my C-Line Glug as the vent is set further back than in smaller CANs & the last thing that I wanted was to have to clean up a spill or other mess. This mess gurgled & fizzed like pop as I poured, creating an ongoing fizzy, foamy finger of pinkish head that came and went as quickly as I poured. Color was a Hot Pink (SRM = N/A) with NE-quality clarity & I just knew that I was in for a good time! Nose smelled like a liquefied watermelon Jolly Rancher. It had that same sour quality that I really do not like in the CANdy, but I was keeping an open mind as I took my first sip. Oof, this goof was gross! It was super sweet, almost like actual CANdy, but a CANbination of cotton CANdy & someone's distasteful idea of artificial watermelon flavor. Gah. Once again, I was reminded that nothing that comes out of the Minhas Craft Brewery is fit for human CANsumption as the tromp of heavy boots was heard outside my fence, in the alleyway. I quickly ran upstairs to don my CyberLeader outfit as the first of The Cybermen crashed through the gate. I had to work quickly as I could hear the TARDIS' siren beginning to materialize in the nearby parking lot. Mouthfeel was thin & watery, more testament to the quality of Minhas' products. My goodness, but it was sugary sweet! This could give a diabetic fits. The other problem, for me, was its unrelenting unnatural watermelon-like flavor. I like watermelon, but this was too artificial, even for me. It was like someone's skewed idea of what watermelon tastes like. However, in its defense, it did manage to mask the usual taste of dry cleaning plant and chewed pink bubble gum that I usually get with a Minhas product. In the interim, I waved off the Cyber Invasion & no time too soon as not only did the pesky Doctor appear, but so did that overzealous Welsh Torchwood group! Blast! I barely had time to remove my shiny silver suit & reappear in human form to assure them that nothing was amiss. I find that they are increasingly suspicious with each visit, which is why I have refrained from imbibing Minhas products for a while. Hmm. Some things never ChANge, it seems. Finish was sweet, cloyingly sweet, sweet like a bowl of processed sugar. That CANnot be good for you! I guess that there is a real reason that, six months later, I am still the first to review & rate this gem. YMMV, but I doubt it.
