Pours a hazy gold with eggshell white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of grain and wheat, slightly metallic. Not sure if I'm getting any of the watermelon, maybe faintly. Taste follows the nose, grainy up front with a little watermelon sweetness on the middle of the palate. Finishes slightly metallic. Mouthfeel is on par for a 4.9% wheat beer. Overall, very crushable, drinkable, but not something I would reach for. In terms of a 21st Amendment session beer I will go for Down to Earth.

Watermelon taste is very faint. Kind of bitter after tones. Not quite as good as I was hoping.

12 oz can poured into a snifter. Pours yellow with a finger of foam that fades quickly. Aroma is wheaty, grainy, husky, and a hint of watermelon.

Flavor has a nice watermelon presence. Not super sweet, and the wheat malt comes through in the aftertaste. The watermelon flavor is subdued, which is preferable. Very light and refreshing.

Honestly, not a bad summer beer. I'd buy this again if I knew I'd be drinking outside.

Not really a review, just wanted to say a few things. This beer isn't going be a Beer of Fame anytime soon, BUT, I don't think it was brewed with that in mind. It's a fun light bodied beer that goes down smooth, kinda like a session IPA. Go mow the lawn, then knock a few of these back, and you will see what I mean. It's just a fun beer. Props to 21st for doing something different :-)

(ohh, the price is on point too. I think I paid 7.99 at BevMo for a sixer of CANS)

Nice light bodied beer, perfect on a hot summer day. Favorite beer while kayaking. Most can's I've had reminded me of Jolly Rancher's , though the candy like flavor was not as present when I've had it on tap at the brewery. Go Giants!
