A - Slightly hazed, Hell or High Watermelon is warm pale straw yellow in color with a soapy white head that relaxes to a ring of foam and little lace left behind.

S - Juicy Jolly Rancher watermelon aroma blends with pale malt and soft wheat for a simple but dry, inviting aroma that suggests faint tartness in the background.

T - Watermelon flavor is at the forefront and carefully teeters between authentic and artificial, but nicely blending with the one dimensional pale malt base.

M - Crisp and refreshing, Hell or High Watermelon is light bodied and effervescent with a slightly dry finish that trails off with clean drinkability.

O - It's been my experience trying to incorporate the flavor of natural watermelon into a beer without a syrupy, fake outcome is incredibly hard. That said, I think 21st Amendment has done a fine job producing such a beer; one with good watermelon flavor incorporated nicely into a

Tried at Three Monkeys Bar & Grill and the Northside Grill, both in Richmond, Va

A - Pours a very pale light hazy yellow with one finger fluffy white head. Not much color. Good retention though

S - Smells of berries & light malts. Vert light aroma. I did not detect any watermelon.

T - Tastes of mixed berries right up front. Slight malt background. Still no watermelon. Over all disappointing.

M - Very lgiht beer. Pretty watery. Does go down easy

O - Very disappointed. I was looknig forward to trying this beer but it didnt have much flavor or aroma. The berry flavor it did have seemed artificial. Im not sure where they are picking up the watermelon at
