3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at the brewery in Chambersburg. Cloudy, unfiltered soft orange color with a white head. Nose of semi-sweet, mellow base pils malt and a rind-like, raw watermelon fruit note, very pure and true to the fruit, little in the way of artificial flavoring in this beer. Flavor is crisp, medium to full body, with a greenish (as in green watermelon rind) character, which is actually quite nice. The fruit character isn’t overdone or artificial in nature, and the underlying you can tell is quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Capone’s. Pours cloudy dark straw to orangy with off-white head and some pink edges. Nose is pale malt, freshly cut watermelon. Tastes fruity, with a nice watermelon flavor plus a solid amount of malt and backup hops. It gets a tad cloying toward the end and the watermelon seems to lose intensity as it warms, but this one was a very unique style, and I believe the first watermelon lager I’ve ever had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Draft @ Capones] Poured a murky pink color with a small, pinkish white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of watermelon and toasted malts. Taste of sweeter watermelon, more toasty malts, grains, and a dry, crisp, clean finish. Really nice summertime brew, and the best watermelon beer i’ve had.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on draft at D’s Monroeville this beer poured a hazy yellow color with a small white head that faded quickly. The aroma was faint sweet melon with not much else to it. The flavor was tangy and sweeitish with a moderately strong artificial watermelon presence that dominated and was somewhat less than pleasant. The finish was tangy melon. Not good.
