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.

Excellent beer for our a hot day. Crisp, watermelony and refreshing. Aroma is roasted corn with a slight watermelon hint. Taste is very even with just a hint of sweetness and watermelon. Did I say drinkable?

Watermelon doesn’t belong in beer. This isn’t terrible, but I just can’t 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.

Light and refreshing. Fruity, but not overly sweet, hints of bread and yeast along with a touch of malt. Not offensive, not a standout.

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.

Had a minor jolly rancher flavor. Slight scent too. Very light in color and no haze, completely clear. Lager was light but clean. Artificial taste, but still kinda neat. Tap.

12 ounce bottle poured at my grandparent’s in Carlisle, PA. Pours a clear golden with a slight white head. Doesn’t really have a lot of smell. Tastes like watermelon. Decent little summer beer. Drinkable.

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

Beerman6686 (5481) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2012
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.

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.

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