For the price, Shock Top is pretty bad ass. I donít see it getting a whole lot better than this for as cheep as it is. I didnít drink this out of any type of glass so I couldnít say what color it was or comment on the head. All I can say is that it smells a lot like herbs and it tastes a lot like an orange dipped in a fizzy batch of liquid banana nut bread. Itís distributed very well so it is a nice back-up, late night beer.

A pretty watery wheat beer that needs a slice of orange to make it taste like anything.

Hazy pale yellow with a large off white head. Sweet and yeasty aroma with wheat and lemons. Flavour had wheat, yeast, orange peel and hints of coriander. Finished sweet.

Initially some spices and citrus, almost like a tangerine. Somehow managed to be slightly offensive on the first taste. After a few sips the taste mellows but gets old fast. Not bad, but not that good.

On tap at Mesa 21. Light orange color. Thin citrus flavor and mouthfeel. Leaves much to be desired.

Pours a hazy yellow with a medium white head. Light aroma of orange citrus, spice, and malt. Standard flavors of wheat, oranges, citrus, and spices. Light body and heavily carbonated. Unimpressive.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slight cracker and spicy citrus nose. Cloudy yellow, medium head. Marmalade sweet, light lemony tartness. Big carbonation, light to medium body, slightly artificially tasting sweet finish. Not the worst beer in the world, but I probably prefer Blue Moon if forced to choose a "micro" beer produced by one of the big breweries.

Not bad stuff...for a macro brew. Itís got a cloudy wheat feel to it, but with entirely too much citrus. I guess you should expect that from the orange slice on the label.
Still I give it credit for having some body, as well as some grass and citrus flavor...

Draft at the wastelands of Busch Gardens and Sea World. a murky yellow beer ( I think, it came in plastic cup) with a white head. Citrus scent and taste with some spice. It is better than I would have thought but that is not saying much. This goes to show that 8 hours in the sun at 100 degrees may cause you to spend $6 on an An-Busch product.

Tastes of wheat and orange. Go figure. Refreshing alternative to overly yeasty wheat beers. A nice go to when it comes to draft beers at conventional restaurants and bars.
