COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This summertime lager is both smooth and refreshing as soon as it hits the lips. We take so much pride in it because there is truly nothing else like it on the market. We brew this American Style Lager beer with three types of malt: pilsner, pale and carafoam which enhance the head retention of this beer. We then gingerly scatter some very light floral hops at the beginning to give it some esters and sweetness that compliment the watermelon. The true magic of this beer does not occur in the brewing process but in the conditioning vessel. This is where we add the best farm fresh local watermelon and than push the beer into it, allowing it to sit and saturate for a few weeks. By the time it is complete, we are left with a unbelievably smooth tasting beer with a beautiful aroma and subtle taste of watermelon that imparts its way into this already crisp lager. Truly our customers' favorite, this one will have you reaching for another glass soon after you put the first one down.

A unique fruit beer, not being a huge fruit beer fan I’m not a fan. I was at the brewery and figured I would give it a go. I am sure some will love it but it’s not for me.

(Growler) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of watermelon, grain, and grass. Flavor of watermelon candy, light florals, and grain. Refreshing summer beer.

HopHead7 (28) - - JAN 9, 2012
Crisp aromas, fruity and grassy. Not a lot of hop aroma present. Pours semi-golden with a light head. Body is light, flavor of melons and grass with some malt notes. Overall it is a crisp and light beer but I did not care for the flavors. Had a growler of it that I got on tap at the brewery.

yespr (39609) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2011
From tap. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild grassy and herbal. Melonish fruity to peachy. Light hoppy and grassy. Bitter and melonish into the finish.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Pours a slight hazed pale golden with a minimal yet lasting white head. Aroma is crisp clean malts, light toast, light watermellon juice and rinds, earthy and grassy. Flavor is mostly clean, no harsh phenolics from the watermelon rinds or pulp, lightly juicy, floral, crisp clean malts, and easy drinking clean finish- nice summer beer. Id probably take this over 21st amendment hell or highwatermelon.

Tried this at Millvale Brewfest. The watermelon taste was a bit sweet. poured a nice yellow but didn’t have a good finish. I love fruit beers but this one didn’t leave me wanting another.

j12601 (9526) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
BCTC. Pours a hazy gold. Pumpkin seeds, rubber, and a touch of sulfur on the nose. Not a ton of watermelon, but it’s there. Finishes with a light clean touch of grain.

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Tap at BCTC 2009: Hazy light golden with a white thin film of head. Aroma is a bit sulfuric- very light light dimethylsulfide under the subtle melon notes. Light body. Very natural watermelon presence. Sweet upfront, but natural with a rich melon fruitiness. Crisp clean flavor, lean with a mild finish. Natural fruit character, not too bad. A good one for the ladies.

On tap at the Liberty. Pours a light yellow. Taste was horrible. If I didn’t know any better I swear it was brewed with dirty laundry. Would never order again

cheap (5148) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2009 On tap at the Bocktown, very nice place. Very light and pretty looking naked american pale lager. Nice coating of bubbles on the inside. Thin head stays for a while. Smell is fairly clean with a slight alky olfactory. Barely if any fruity scents. Initial mild hops bite that fades ever so quickly to a mild plateau. Cannot taste much watermelon or fruit per se. Fairly mild yet has that quick mildly bitter inset with each taste and swig. Somewhat springtime watery and light after a few minutes. Interesting with a fairly well behaved finish.
