2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This light ale pours light brown with notes of malt and watermelon. Cudos for trying to be different but in the end this beer pulls off as pretty average.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours yellow with a white head. Nose from the bottle is watermelon but dissipates in the glass to a faint aroma. Palate is medium light with a bitter watermelon fruit. Thomas Hooker remains the king of those Iíve tasted.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft @ Canal St. location on 7 June 2013 before the Bruins vs. Penguins Game 4. OK, I told the bartender to keep the watermelon wedge that they put on the rim of the glass. Watermelon doesnít have a strong aroma, neither does this. Maybe light traces of pale malts. The flavor for sure has a Jolly Rancher melon flavor. Sweet melon in the finish. Weak wheat backbone. The body and texture is watery. Yeah, thatís all I got. Not terrible just cheap and unexciting.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at the Fenway Brewpub, Boston, MA.
Served with slice of watermelon. Clear pale golden colour with no head.
Aroma: Sweet candy sugary. Watermelon probably only because of the slice on glass. Sweet candy like sweetness. Very sweet caramel. Some fruitiness. Way too sweet. I donít know why I chose this since I donít like watermelons.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A golden ale with a thin white head, served with a slice of watermelon. In aroma, fruity watermelon and berries, candy floss, not too cloying. In mouth, a sweetish oily ale with chemical fruity pulp, solvants, light German hops, not bad. On tap at Canal St. brewpub July 11 2010.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well i was surprised. Thought it would taste either like nothing or way to sweet. Nicely in between and only tasted that freshness from the watermelon rind on the way down. Definitely can only drink on a nice summer day.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap: Light golden in color with very little head and what it has dissipates quickly. The nose is crisp and gives off scents of fresh watermelon. The watermelon is less noticable in the mouth but still aparent. This is a crisp and refreshing beer that I enjoyed more than I expected and was in fact my favorite of the flight.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Fenway and Canal Street locations. Transparent light yellow head. Beer really does smell like watermelon. Hoppy, refreshing... end palate has both bitterness and sweetness. Not disgusting at all.
