2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the description on the bottle I was lead to believe that this was going to be a brew full of flavor. I was fooled. There are the slightest hints of dark malt, chilis, and some muted spices but nothing remotely strong. All flavors are dull and muddy. The beer does not have a bad flavor, just nothing that you could call good. Pass.

Disappointing. Tastes as if a bunch of otherwise outstanding Shock Top brews were poured together into a vat and mixed up into a zombie. Muddled, with a weak and watery taste, though with a somewhat pleasant, stout-like flavor up-front. Clean & watery finish, with coppery aftertaste. I would prefer to drink something else at the end of the world.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is chocolate, caramel, lightly spicy. The appearance is hazy dark amber, off-white head, some floaties (maybe too old?). The flavor is chcolate, spicy, cereal grains, caramel. The finish is spicy, peppery, sweet, chocolate, pine needles. Medium in body, a tad on the thick side. Realy not bad at all, better than expected.

Not bad for a Busch beer; can detect cocoa, pleasant party beer. Better than Bud or Miller...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a muddy, opaque brown-gold brew (Lovibond 20). Slight head and lace. Aroma is of a porter or stout! Hints of chocolate and malt. Actually, exactly like Count Chocula cereal. Taste is well balanced between being a wheat beer and pushing the porter envelope - has a wheat beer mouthfeel and watery palate, while offering slight notes of chocolate, hops and spice. A little on the flat side, but by far their best wheat beer offering.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Pour was a dark amber with almost no head. Aroma is a strong alcohol smell with lots of malt. Palate is pretty smooth. Malty with an alcohol on the back end. Not sure if I taste any chili or spices. Overall this might be the nicest Shock Top selection!

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Lager glass at 36°. Color is a deep hazy amber with mellow carbonation and a small tight off white head. Aroma of toffee with a light spice. It has lighter medium body and a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is light with some roasted wheat and spice, then a hint of oak on the back. After is a mild bitterness. Overall its a nice easy drinking brew.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
How could I pass up a $2.99 sixer? Pours a dark brownish amber with a decent thick head and lacing, actually doesn’t look all that bad, aroma has a little bit of spice with a tad bit of chocolate, seems pretty artificial so far, the flavor is pretty weird, kind of fruity on the front end with a slight finish of chocolate and malt, won’t be picking this up again, will maybe if it gets down to .99$ a sixer.

Well brewed. A little bit dissapointing in wheat features but strong and refreshing with nice aromas also.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle @ home picked up in a mixer sixer at some dumpy liquor store in Fort Collins. Pours a murky orange appearance with a small, light brown head. Spicy chili, nutmeg, cinnamon, caramel, weird corny aroma. Not all that pleasant spicy chili, toasty malty, light chocolate flavor. Not very nice.
