From the can marked enjoy by 8/31/2015. Sampled on July 3, 2015.

It pours into a tall Pilsener glass a light pale yellow color with a quick lasting fizzy white head.

Yep, I pick up a few slices of watermelon in the aroma with a more subdued wheat malt character. Some thin spice.

Light body.

Again, like the aroma, watermelon is vibrant in the flavor with a slightly fade wheat note and a mild bitterness to finish. A good one to have on the beach.

a: a light straw color. a hint of pale orange. fizzy white foam on top

s: lemongrass, wheat, coriander, saltwater toffee, watermelon. interesting

t: watermelon juice right away. refreshing. sweet caramel, lemongrass, wheat, grainy, sweet tea

m: lighter side of medium. high carbonation. pretty fizzy

o: its refreshing, but i'm not sure watermelon is my top choice of flavor to put in beer. its not "bad" it just seems that the flavors don't quite harmonize together in here

Really great summer beer. Light watermelon flavor in a light bodied ale. Not going to blow your socks off, but for what it is, it's a great beer.

This beer is more of a "Hey look, I'm drinking watermelon beer" type of beer. The taste of this beer definitely is as described with it's malty start in tasting and its eventual watermelon rind aftertaste. Other than that this beer really lacks in other respects especially with smell. Little to no aroma comes from this beer and the feel of this beer is very watery and lacks any real substance. Other than the interesting watermelon aspect and how refreshing it is, this beer doesn't have much going for it.

Not great. Taste cheap, with slight watermelon flavor. Too light.

Can from the infamous GCG
Hazy murky straw color with a frothy tightly bubbled white head. Earthy wheat with hints of watermelon rind. The flavor feels more like cantaloupe with a bready spicy almost rancid light candied flavor to it. I find this completely bland and can't see a reason to ever put this to my lips again.
