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 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.

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.

Really not like watermelon or a lager. Not enjoyable. Light and absent. Would not order again

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.

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.

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.

Watermelon doesnít belong in beer. This isnít terrible, but I just canít get into it either. Straw colored pour with thin head. Watermelon is faint in the aroma, shows up more in the flavor, but not overpowering. Has nice crispness to it that lagers are known for.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Sampled on draft at Dís 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.

Crisp aromas, fruity and grassy. Not a lot of hop aroma present. Pours semi-golden with a light head. Body is light, flavor of melons and grass with some malt notes. Overall it is a crisp and light beer but I did not care for the flavors. Had a growler of it that I got on tap at the brewery.
