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.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
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.

From tap. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild grassy and herbal. Melonish fruity to peachy. Light hoppy and grassy. Bitter and melonish into the finish.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2009
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.

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.

(Growler) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a small white head. Aroma of watermelon, grain, and grass. Flavor of watermelon candy, light florals, and grain. Refreshing summer beer.

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 írealí 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.

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.

A unique fruit beer, not being a huge fruit beer fan Iím not a fan. I was at the brewery and figured I would give it a go. I am sure some will love it but itís not for me.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, 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.
