Medium brown in color with a nice, tan, long lasting head. Minimal aroma. It has a medium-strong bitter taste that eases somewhat on the palate with a hint of spice.

Bottle. Pours a dirty brown with an ugly tan head. Aroma is caramel and malt. The taste is a sort of soggy chocolate and wheat. Finish has a bit of spice to it. I don’t know what it is, but something is a bit off with this...everything tastes a bit sickly and I don’t think I’d grab another bottle of this again. 6% alcohol.

12oz twist-off bottle. Pours cloudy brown, off-white head. Aroma of banana and chili. Hints of chocolate malt. Taste of an odd spice, very little chili, a nice presence of chocolate, mostly wheat flavor. Finishes with a little tingle way way back in the back of my throat. On of the better Shock Tops.

11/6/12. 12oz bottle from Publix. Hazy brown pour with a small khaki head that fades but laces decently. Light banana and caramel aroma, but not much else... the flavor is also a bit light, but again shows banana and caramel. There’s also a dingy aspect and a lingering hint of spiciness. Ehhhh.

Light tasting for a wheat beer but still has that almost meaty flavor. You can definitely taste the spices. It has the lovely cloudy appearance of a good wheat beer and it is well worth trying if wheat beers are your thing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
aroma, slight, choclate very slight, some spice
color, amber hue fairly desent white head
taste, at first the spice hits you, then the choclate maltness comes through, but this is a weak watery version, also the chili did hit at the end.
overall, its ok for the price.

Bottle. Nose is faintly chocolately and spicy. Pours a rather unattractive murky brown, like tea left too long to steep. Definite chili and chocolate on the tongue, with a faint sweetness and a smokiness akin to anchos. Finishes sweet and dark. Tastes a heck of a lot better than it looks.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, with some lacing, over a hazy amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is light cocoa, wheat cereal....taste is light cocoa, wheat cereal, finishing with very light chili note.....mouth feel light, carbonation low. The ingredients were used with a light hand. The result is a very light beer which does not taste bad but has minimal character and complexity. It is well within the theme of "lawnmower beers".
