COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The light and crisp Ale has a hint of watermelon essence, which is accented with colorful hues, filtered at colder temperatures resulting in a more refreshing thirst quenching brew. Our More Than A Mouthful Watermelon Ale is sure to please a variety of palates lending itself to being the perfect summer treat.

Bottle. Clear golden pour with standard white head. Aroma has lots of watermelon but is also very sugary. There’s a medicinal cherry syrup quality to the nose. Flavor is pretty sweet but thankfully not as sweet as expected given the nose. Watermelon juice and hops with a subtle hops finish. Light, crisp, and clean palate. Light and refreshing.

Pours a light golden color. Smells like a watermelon jolly rancher. Flavor is mainly malts and watermelon. Leaves a nice watermelon finish. One of the better watermelon beers I’ve had, if not the best.

I have seen this beer for a while and finally found a single to try. pour is golden in color with a covering of white head. aroma has watermelon jolly ranchers layered over a pale beer. mouth feel is light pushed by plenty of carbonation. flavor is not nearly as good as the smell. a light pale beer with a syrupy watermelon flavoring. I wish the flavor was half as good as the aroma.

Clear dark golden pour fizzy white head ... aroma is a little malty and a smack of candy watermelon like a jolly rancher ..... sweet candy watermelon and tart its crisp but hardly a hint of watermelon! more of a mixed drink feel than a beer but it looks the part .... reminded me of a jolly rancher candy not bad

I’m down for a good fruit beer every now and again, but nothing could have prepared me for this experience (maybe a little too over the top). It says a "hint" of watermelon, more like a smack in the face of watermelon. That added with the intense carbonation it’s almost like drinking a soda. Quite the drinking experience.

Aroma: Watermelon candy completely dominates the nose
Appearance: This one pours a clear golden-straw color
Flavor: Very sweet, really too sweet for my tastes
Palate: The body on this one is pretty light, but it is refreshing
Overall Impression: This one is good for fans of fruit beers (emphasis on fruit).

Bottle at the Governors Island BrewFest. If you like Watermelon Jolly Ranchers, you will love this beer. Pours reddish-brown with a foamy, white head. Big candy watermelon aroma. Super-sweet flavor, tastes just like a JR, with light tang. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes crisp, short and lightly sugary. A great fruit beer.

12 oz bottle. Pale hazy yellow with a quickly dissipating pure white head. The smell of watermelon jolly ranchers wafts from the glass calling out "Ewwwww". I would hope for a more earthy watermelon. Luckily the flavor is more subdued. Just a hint of the fake melon of the nose. Body is thin and watery. A bit of fizz. A touch of tart in the short weak finish. Could make a killing selling this at a sorority house party.

12oz bottle in a flute glass. Pours clear, pale golden with a small, white head. Aroma exactly like that of watermelon hard candies. Very astringent when it hits your tongue (and into the finish), and although the watermelon flavor is not overpowering, it’s not really enjoyable. Light body, thin texture. I can see how some might like this, but it is not for me.
