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.

hopdog (11579) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2008
On tap. Poured a medium golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of watermelon seeds and grains. Tastes of watermelon (lots more than the aromas), grains, and a little fruity.

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.

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.

Decent watermelon influx makes this a slightly interesting lager. Pours golden with ok head. Light sweet finish with some crispness. Tap at pizza paradiso.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6837) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2009
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.

vtafro (6731) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Tap @ Capones. Interesting choice although it seems to be the new fad. Light golden pour. Almost no aroma. Flavor is light and watermelon effect is subtle. Could be sessionable. Seeing the abv confirms.

Beerman6686 (6379) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2012
This poured a lightly cloudy pale yellow color with a white head. Aroma is mainly watermelon, and light grainy notes too. Flavor is grassy hops, and semi artificial watermelon notes. Not bad.
