21A Hell or High Watermelon

I agitated the can (rolled it a bit) and then popped it, poured into a clean pint glass. one finger of head, which quickly dissipated. aroma is sweet, but can't really pick out the watermelon. first sip, watermelon was faint, and i don't know if it's psychological, but i taste something metallic. Although, i do taste the base beer, an american wheat. it's devoid of any phenolics, which is good. Thin mouthfeel, which is fine for the style. pretty refreshing.

it's kinda like getting your hands on a cuban cigar. you've heard so much about the romance and taboo of it, then when you finally try it, it's about the same as a dominican. i'm quite happy i've tried this. and i hope to get some more. it's a good sessionable summertime brew. i'd say about a 6.8/10.
