Hell Or High Watermelon Wheat Beer by 21st Amendment Brewery

Beer #141 is Hell Or High Watermelon Wheat Beer from 21st Amendment Brewery.  21st Amendment Brewery is from San Francisco, California…or is it Minnesota?  Both are mentioned on the can…thats right I said can.  I’m not beer snobby enough to NOT drink beer out of a can…Lord knows I have had plenty of cans in my day.  Did I just say that?  Anyways, the 21st amendment you may or may not know is the amendment that repealed Prohibition.  Yeah baby!  Oh yeah, this beer is a Fruit/Vegetable Beer with an ABV of 4.9%.

Look at the gorgeous white head atop this cloudy pale yellow brew.  Nice…no?  The nose wasn’t quite as nice as it was very weak.  I didn’t get any watermelon in the nose at all.  It mostly consisted of a grain like aroma, very much like Cheerios.  It started to smell a bit skunky as it warmed up.  I took a swig…ahhh…there is the watermelon flavors, albeit, very watered down (and not that good either).  It also had a very light wheat taste and that was about it.  It was sort of thin and watery with a low amount of carbonation.  I didn’t find it all that drinkable as it wasn’t hitting the spot for me.

Everything about this was light, light aroma, light flavors, light body…I had to glance at the can to see if it indeed was a light beer (which it was not).  Maybe it was a slightly carbonated flavored water, a check of the can again…nope, still says beer.  It wasn’t for me, I didn’t like it at all, but I do know others that would find this quite appealing.  The best use for this, at least to me, is to pour it into a trough and let the horses and pigs and such drink it.  Or maybe give it to the peasants…it surely wasn’t fit for a King such as myself.
