    Pours a typical clear golden yellow with a thick eggshell head. Melon aroma reaches the nose first, rather sweet, while malt sneaks in upon a closer approach. Flavor blends watermelon and malty notes for a serviceable if not remarkable taste. Mouthfeel is on the thin side and not very fizzy. Not so hot, but could ease thirst.

    Artificial smelling kinda like watermelon bubble gum, what they hey i like it.. Clear yellow body, a few spots of carbonation, no head or lace to speak of. Flavor of wheat, pale malts and watermelon. Overall its fairly decent but not much going on.

    I drank this after getting off the lawn mower and boy it was refreshing. It poured clear gold color with a thick white head. The aroma is certainly melon just not sure if it's honeydew.watermelon or cantaloupe. Mouthfeel is a little thin but not bad. The taste malt with a hint of melon.

    1 month past best by date. Kinda light and mellow all around, not quite bring but close. Aroma and flavor of light watermelon and malt, with an ever so slight off note. The fruit is refreshing but there's nothing else really happening. Ok.
