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.

Ligth clear golden ruby color with a small white head. Aroma is inviting, light corn, sweet fruit and watermelon. Taste is light and sweet, watermelon, and some smooth grain. Nice and drinkable.

On tap at Capone’s. Clear golden color with a small white head. Smells and tastes like a standard golden lager with just a hint of watermelon showing up to let you know that it is there. Nicely balanced, not too sweet, not too much fruit. Very refreshing.

Experienced on tap in a pub glass. The beer pours a straw-colored gold, with a white head. The nose is, at first, totally pilsner malt, a grainy, grassy scent. This is followed by some very real smelling hints of watermelon. The beer is very light and thin on the palate, and I would have liked to have experienced a little bit more malt depth and complexity. The watermelon did come through, and seemed to compliment what malt and hops that were noticeable nicely. Overall, decent, not great.

Draft at Capone’s, pours a cloudy blonde color with a thin white head, aroma of melon and the taste is the same, fairly thin mouthfeel. This is different but not that great. I got sick of it pretty fast.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2008 sampled at the brewery: pours a hazy orange color a shade darker than a hefe-weisee, head is two fingers when poured but then goes down to a thick film across the top. This is an interesting beer, like nothing I’ve ever had. earthy, farm flavors emanate from the cloudy beer recalling a summer drive through the country. flavor is light base malt, lots of fresh watermelon, and a bit of sulfur. light in body. A beer that is worth a try re-rate: clean mallty light lager. dry, natural watermelon in the finish. sulfar has cleaned up, solid, interesting and creative.

Draft @ Capones: Poured a golden yellow with small thin white head. The aroma was some watermelon, malts and barley. Nothing overpowering. The flavor was initially of ’real’ watermelons and left me with a flavor of a watered down lager. Overall, a tasty brew, but not good enough for me to write home about it.

Brewed in the USA !!! (KSBF) Pours a hazy yellow color with a small white head. Aroma of light watermelon and some malts. Taste is much of the same with the addition of grains. Overall, It was very mild but could be nice on a sunny day.

KSBF 08-Poured a pale gold color thin white head. Light watermelon aroma which carries into the pallet. Lightly malted and a bit of hops. Smooth-crisp and refreshing. Not bad for a fruit beer.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2008
On tap at Capones. Poured gold in color with a small beige ring of head. Aroma was of strong earthy watermelon. The aroma of watermelon In general I don’t find very pleasant so I was a bit scared to try this. Tastes of watermelon and lager if you can imagine that. The taste is a little earthy, but fruity with watermelon. I found this quite refreshing and much better than I expected. New brewery stepping out of the box. Kudos.

On Tap at Capone’s. Poured a light yellow with a very slight pink hue. The head was thin, white and extremely wispy. Nose was light malts, light citrus, and mostly watermelon. Taste was similar to a very light, fizzy mixed drink. It tasted like a light lager with a watermelon zest. This was another odd brew that was very carbonated, almost to the point of coming off as a wine cooler. It was much better than I expected, but the fizzy body would prevent me from ever drinking much of it.
