2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured up a brownish color with very little head. Smells of chocolate malts with a bit of grain. Taste pretty much the same with the addition of some spices. Somewhat interesting but not something I would want to go out of my way to drink again.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an opaque medium brown with an off white long lasting head with little lacing. The aroma is faint chocolate. The palate is light as it is with Shock Top beers. The chocolate malt dominates with a slight spice and a back of the throat chili hit after a few sips. I’ve had a chili beer that by the end of a bottle, my mouth was on fire. Not here thankfully

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I didn’t get too much of a wheat flavor. A light beer with just a touch of darker malts. Pretty straight-forward.

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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
