Comments: This is clearly a good summer drink, if not clearly a great beer.  The beer is a thin, straw color, inconsistent in tone and very sparkly.  The aroma is defined by the watermelon scent which is also the clear flavor upon first sip.  The flavor evaporates leaving a bland, watery mouthfeel. The head also disappears quickly.  Mind you this is not necessarily a bad thing as many fruit beers can be overly sweet and sticky.  This watermelon ale is clean and refreshing and good for a hot summer’s day.  Serve with a slice of watermelon.
