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.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2008

3fourths (8219) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2008
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 isnít overdone or artificial in nature, and the underlying you can tell is quite tasty.

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 22, 2008
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.

j12601 (6743) - 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 itís there. Finishes with a light clean touch of grain.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Draft at Capones. Pours a pale bronze body with a white head. Light end of a Mellon sweetness. Pitty melon with a sweet but very light refreshing finish, much better than what i was expecting.

egajdzis (5385) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 29, 2008
[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.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - 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.
