12 oz bottle thanks to Kevin: Pours a dark, rusty orange, pretty cloudy. Thick white head. Aroma of hay, doughy yeast, pretty much smells like an Ameriacan lager. Taste is about the same. I really don’t get much of the malt, spice or chili that the beer is supposed to be brewed with. Good marketing campaign, very average beer.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy dark ruby/amber with some big chunkies and a half finger of white head. Aroma is mostly malt. Loads of caramel and chocolate. A little dirty grain and just a hint of spicy pepper. Taste is light bitter. I get the wheat and chocolate with a hint of spice. Some light herbal hops on the back end. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation but a decent finish. Overall, not bad. By far the best Shock Top out there.

Nightsky (176) - Lutz, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Not much to aroma or palate, taste was ok, I enjoyed the humor in the name and the taste. A quick burst of chili pepper flavor, then very abruptly, there is Nothing! End of the World, very funny. Still low. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

typical micro tasting from a large macro brewing. Bland, dull, not balanced or complex. Decent, not a drain pour.

scooterbub (831) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 16, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a nice one inch beige head that lasts. Taste is of roasted malt, coffee, wheat, citrus, chocolate, chili and some warming spices. Similar, clean aroma. Has a decent, lighter body with a slight bitter finish. Easy to drink and enjoyable. Kind of neat to see them expand the brand out like this.

Bottle. Orange, cinnamon, and wheat malt aroma. Hazy orange-brown with small head. Sweet orange caramel malt and mildly bitter herbal hops flavor. Okay - probably the best of the Shock Tops.

From a twist off bottle. A little perfumy on the nose. Wew, strongish initial taste bud impact, but never goes over the top. Fades quickly to a rapidly apparent dullness of wheat. Yes, different but still al little on the BMC processed side.

Fun beer for any end of the world party. Not good for any other time. Just kind of average.
