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.

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.

DocLock (7703) - 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.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2008
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.

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.

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.

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.

vtafro (2828) - 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.

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.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - 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.

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.
