5/26/13. 12iz bottle. I did not intend to rate this right now. I bought this from Total Wine only to tick and when I got home the stupid cap had leaked half the bottle out. I took two warm sips and thre this garbage away. Lame fake sweet apple spiced bullshit. Fuck AB.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2013 I didn’t have high hopes with this one based on previous Shock Top varieties. Cloudy, light colored beverage. I was encouraged by this because i just don’t understand why cider in the fall is a deep amber color, but hard cider bought from the store looks like pale champagne. Aroma is cider. Has a quite good aroma...if it were a cider. Not much beer in the scent. This brew’s flavor is slightly tart and dry, with a hint of mediocre witbier peeking through. Together this amounts to a cider with a backbone. I like it, and would buy again. If they paired the cider with a better and more flavorful beer, then they’d really have something.

Bottle: Drank from the bottle. Aroma was strong with apple. Taste was a sour apple syrup mess.

j12601 (7955) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle at James’s 4k/5k/10k tasting. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Smells like hard apple candies. Tangy apple over a big amount of grain. Dirty grain. Tart on the finish, with a bit of sweetness. Not terrible.

IrishBoy (3958) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 19, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Bottle at my nephew’s birthday party. Nose is tart apples, flowers, and cinnamon. Murky yellow with a medium green tinged head. Flavor is lightly tart and fruity with apple and pineapple notes. A pretty decent session beer. Basically tastes like a nice crisp tart cider.
