Great Summer Beer. Goes down smooth, has to be enjoyed fairly quickly as it contains watermelon.

This beer was part of a variety pack. I can't express how disappointing and vile this was. The flavor was more like rind rather than watermelon - the white slightly bitter outer layer between the skin and pink sweet part. There was only a slight hint of sweetness buried under the musty rind bitterness. Totally disappointing since the other types included in the variety pack were pretty decent.

L: Pours a light golden straw color with a hint of light green glow to it when you hold it to the light. Minimal head recedes quickly to a thin halo of mist.

S: Almost no smell. Hmmmm. A soft nose of malt with a twist of lemon.

T: Tastes like a basic lager with an aftertaste of artificial watermelon (aka jolly rancher). It's not too artificial tasting though and I kinda like it.

F: A bit of extra zing to the over carbonation and a dry but not too dry finish.

Overall I am glad I tried it. Would be a good one for a hot day out by the pool. I probably wouldn't try it again but it would be a nice one to help a non beer appreciator over the gap.
