Think Jolly Rancher watermelon. Pours a pale yellow and the smell is just full of sugar. The taste is very sugary sweet and a taste that is more than comparable to artificial watermelon flavor. Not for me but I can see how some people would really like this one.

A big shout out to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is bursting with watermelon, jolly ranchers come to mind. Taste is mild compared to the smell. Some watermelon, a bit of wheat, light and subdued. Feels light in the mouth and overall a refreshing beer, but not something I would want a steady diet of.
