Pours a Piss yellow with More head than Tera Patrick. aroma is diacetyl wolf pussy rotten watermelon rinds and yeast infection. Flavor is rotten watermelon rind carcass of a dead cat and anal lube. Phoenix brewing is awful.
On tap at Phoenix Ale Brewery, pours s clear pale golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is floral and perfumey, smelling quite artificial. Flavour is more like watermelon, with a nice bite and some zest. Uninteresting but clean. ryrpat (372) - Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2015
Just awful. I hope it was a bad bottle or expired since it is winter now. But just too carbonated and brutal flavor. I don't get any watermelon

12oz can. Hazy golden color with sediment and one finger head. Watermelon and wheat aroma. Some watermelon on the taste. Alright beer to drink during hot weather. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Slightly unclear dark yellow. Virtually no head. Aroma is grain, light wheat, light watermelon with more of a of the sugary watermelon juice type smell. Light body. A bit watery. Flavor is wheat, grain, light watermelon juice type sweetness but not watermelon flavor really. Finish is light bready with a mild earthy bitter. Simple. Can do a lot worse for a hot weather refresher, but this is pretty plain. MarinEvelyn (854) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Aroma is faint. Grain, wheat, slight watermelon. Taste is similar. A little grainy and dry. Slightly bitter. Like the taste of watermelon when you get near the white edge.

[Bottle] Pours yellow in color with a fading bright white head. Watermelon Jolly Ranchers and mild zest in the nose. Similar flavors, with artificial watermelon taking center stage. Weak body. Very wine cooler-like. Spritzy carbonation. Tasting notes from 8/2014. jackfrost9p (338) - California, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Sweet ale with a hint of watermelon. Refreshing on a hot day, but wouldn’t be my first choice. achtungpv (264) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Mild lager. Some wheat, some rye. Watermelon on the back end. Nothing spectacular here. Move along. Vballnbeer (158) - Gorham, Maine, USA - JUL 17, 2013
I remember trying to brew a watermelon beer back in my home brewing days and falling short, so I always have to try one when I see one. The aroma was pretty nice, it is unfiltered and the bottle suggests gently rolling it to awaken the yeast. It pours a cloudy dark gold and has little head. The flavor is mild with a decent amount of watermelon flavor but the base isn’t very good and it doesn’t blend very well. I’ll keep looking. wildbeercat (356) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 27, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Sour. Sour sour sour. No watermelon, but a definite sour, soapy smell.
Appearance: Super super foamy head. It took a while to pour this one because, even slowly and at a near 179 degree angle, it foamed up really fast. Hazy dark yellow body. Visible sediment.
Taste: Oh wow, not what I was expecting after that terrifying aroma. Really nice subtle watermelon on the arrival backed up by fresh bready yeast. Nice and refreshing! (That aroma is still terrifying though).
Palate: Short finish. Light bodied, not watery.
Overall: Pretty nice beer. That aroma is scary, but this is a pretty nice one. I usually like fruity beers that leave no doubt what the fruit is, and honestly, had I not known this is a watermelon ale, I wouldn’t have been able to guess the fruit. Pretty decent brew, though!
