3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at portland fruit beer fest. Pours a slightly hazed straw with tight but thin white head. Bold melon forward nose, super fruity and juicy, underlying cereal grain, corn nuts, hints of green apple. Melon is dominant, underlying malt liquor is apparent, but it is cleaner and less biting with grainy fusel than the mass produced malts. Solid and hope this is a regular seasonal NC offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of honeydew melon, corn, grain, and light alcohol notes. Pours golden, hazy, thin non lasting head. The flavor starts with melon, corn and grain on the mid palate, ight bitterness in the finish. Lingering honeydew flavors, a touch of boozey heat. Medium carbonation. Good shit.

Growler from Naked City. Never had the NC-17 before, but this honeydew-infused concoction is awesome. Melon aroma and flavor through and through. Even has the weird bitter aftertaste of a melon. Bonus for picking up the growler on Sunday ($9.00!)
