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.

Wow, for me, this is done right! Great beer, I'll be buying more as an easy drinker for summer. Edit: After some more tasting, I'm lowering the taste from 4.5 to 4.25. I'm still loving the watermelon, but a bit artificial tasting. Smell is watermelon jolly rancher (which probably sounds terrible to some people). No hint of watermelon in the look. Light yellow with not much brightness.
