1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Caramel and Granny Smith apple aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Sweet candied apple flavor with a light bitter finish. Better than most other Shock Top "beers" but still reminiscent of apple Kool-Aid or Slice Apple soda (for those who remember the apple drink craze in the early 80s).

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cloudy pale yellow color with small white head. Fragrant apple aroma. Not terrible as the wheat beer base comes through. The apple flavor is is sweet but not over-the-top. Apple is rather tart and a sweet aftertaste. It’s ok for what it is but couldn’t drink more than one.

It definitely tastes like artificial apple flavor. Not much in terms of a wheat beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dahlia’s rbwg! Hazy milky straw color white head. Aroma of sour apple candy not real apples. Still smells good though. Taste of tart sour apple, artificial. Tasty and very drinkable but more a beer cocktail than a beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a decent cheddar orange with a nose of apple-infused Sprite, light seltzered honey, and a touch of mango. Flavor is carbonated apple, light mango, a smidgen of papaya, and a finish of honey. Lively on the tongue. Dang the haters. This ain’t bad.

3.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma of this beer is so heavenly that words can hardly describe it. The taste falls a little short of the smell but still very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fresh, sweet apple aroma - somehow reminds me of childhood. The usual overwrought Shock Top label, but with little apples. Foggy gold. Twistoff bottle. Crisp, apple peel/core flavor, acidic and with zippy carbo. Sweet enouh without getting clingy. Tangy aftertaste. More appealing (get it) than most ciders. ABC, Betton.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, white head, over a hazy, dark yellow (SRM 4) body....nose is heavy apple, light banana bubblegum.....taste is heavy apple, lighter banana/bubblegum, hints of vanilla, medium sweet throughout, light apple sour on the finish...mouth feel light of medium, carbonation high with extensive tingle on the tongue. The apple adjuncts were used with a relatively heavy hand, and as a result dominate completely. There are some interesting aromas and flavors that might have come forward to make this a better and more interesting beer. BJCP 7/3/10/4/5
