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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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. I’m torn on the flavor here. I love watermelon candy but I’m afraid this is coming across as watermelon soda mixed with a lager. I don’t hate it, just throwing me off. Like the tartness and it is refreshing. Weak aroma.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

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 I’ve tasted in a long time.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow - when this beer arrives it actually has a big sweet wedge of watermelon sticking right on the pint glass. I was secretly hoping this would be the case but did not disclose it to other members of my male gender. This fruit beer has a medium tan lager color and looks quite refreshing in comparison to thick, dark lambics. In the middle of August heat, this is the perfect refreshing beer to cool you down when you are heading from the church to the reception as you are boiling in your suit and tie. It tastes like a true, smooth, bottom-fermented lager with a slightly sweet, watermelon aftertaste. Even those beer fans who aren’t keen on lambics would truly enjoy one of these beers on a hot summer day.
