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.

[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.

12 oz bottle - camping, 7/3/16. Thought the watermellon worked pretty well here. Not overwhelming or anything. Pretty well balanced with the herbal, grassy, and bready flavors. Definitely leans sweet, but not in an unpleasant way as is the case with other similar beers. Smooth and clean. Doesnít get cloying or anything. Better than it needed to be.

altonbrownd (5655) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Bottle from Chevy Chase Beer and Wine. Golden body with thin head. Nose is sweet, fruity with strong notes of watermelon. Not very inviting at this point. Taste is better, hoppy, with fruits and watermelon flavour but relatively subdued. Not so bad.

Rciesla (5500) - 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.

cheap (5309) - 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.

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.

Draught @ Capone’s: Sweet aroma of malts. Poured gold in color with a dense white head. Clear. Sparkling. Tastes of watermelon and pale malts. Light body. Thin, watery texture. Average carbonation. Artificially sweet watermelon finish.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 25, 2008
On tap at Capones. Pours a hazy golden with a smaller bubbly white head that left slight lacing. Aroma was light cereal grains, hay a little grassy and the faintest hint of watermelon. Flavor the watermelon was up front, kind of tart like a watermelon jolly rancher, cereal grains, light grassy and bready notes. Iím torn on the flavor here. I love watermelon candy but Iím afraid this is coming across as watermelon soda mixed with a lager. I donít hate it, just throwing me off. Like the tartness and it is refreshing. Weak aroma.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Draft at Bulls Public House. Pours yellow with an inch if white foam and it leaves some lacing in the glass. Notes of may on the nose. Fairly malty on the tongue as well with notes of watermelon which give it a bit of tartness. Very solid for a lager.

alobar (3532) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Dark brown color with a slightly off white foamy head. Some carbonation present. Mild aroma of watermelon and grain/ wheat. Flavor of wheat, malts and watermelon. Might be the most different beer Iíve tasted in a long time.
