2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A caramel gold ale with a white head. Very little aroma, but the flavor is medium bodied and pretty rich. For those taking the narrow road in the crafty debate this is a no-no beer. But it actually has some good flavor notes.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. The look is a light off white head, light orange in color. The smell is light, fruit, spice, and wheat. The taste is about the same. Just eh.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This pours a light brown color with a foamy beige head. There is a slight scent of chocolate and chili spice mixed with wheat. This is a complex, darker wheat flavor with elements of chocolate and spice as it promises. Surprisingly decent for being an AB-InBev competition product to Blue Moon’s line.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle and served in my small Ayinger Hefe glass: Pours a brown hue with a lasting lovely beige head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of chocolate, wheat, coconut, pepper, cinnamon, and some bready esters. The taste is sort of like a dunkelweizen with carmel and chocolate malt notes along with some wheat and banana. The spice is mostly a quick hit towards the finish without much staying power. I expected more Midnight Wheat character and roast than this provided and sort of knew that the spice would be tepid. For what it is it is drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours out a gorgeous hazy amber with a nice sized foamy white head. Faint but delightful nose of dark caramel, earthy wheat and some sort of near-chocolate malty sweetness like a dunklewiess. Flavor is a little too light, but tastes of dark sweet wheaty malts, light blonde cereal grains, a little pale cocoa, and a dry finish. Not terrible, but I just can’t reccomend this to anybody except those who already drink Shock Top.

Bottle. Pours a hazy darker amber color with a slight white head. Nose has a lot of grains in it. Taste is much the same, Odd. Would not peg this as a wheat beer.

Like the apocalypse that never came, this beer disappoints. There’s a reason that the six pack has lasted since fall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours medium brown. Nose has elements of citrus, roast and some toffee and sweet malts. Flavors, are coffee, touch of chocolates, oranges, citrus, bitter roast astringency, and a like drover warming character of the chilis. Not overly bad for having some many flavors going on.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with medium tan head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is cinnamon and spice. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet raisin malt and cinnamon spice in the finish. A good spice brew from Shock Top
