2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Taste good but it leaves the pallet quickly. All in all not a bad beer though. I have had other apple or cider beers and this is very crisp tasting. I just wish the taste stayed.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
From 12oz bottle to tulip. Pour is a milky yellow, thin active head that quickly disappeared. Nose is heavy green apple, other citrus, smells like a green jolly rancher. Taste is very light, sweet. Highly carbonated, finishes smooth but with that carbonation bite. For a mainstream InBev company, not terrible. However not a beer Iím going to seek out anytime soon.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
HQT night. Bottle. Tasted like a sour apple martini... our a caramel apple candy. Not terrible... but more of a cider than a beer. I call it a girl n beer... wife lived it. My bottle had yeast sediment.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is fantastic. Less sweet than most Apple beers / cider which is a plus. If you like fruity beer you will enjoy this!

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The smell of this beer is packed with apples, it tastes a lot more like a woodchuck hard cider than it does beer. Not very good, I didnít have high hopes for this one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: pale straw with some lighter gold highlights; unfiltered haze, nearly opaque in the center. Fizzling, wispy white head is gone in seconds. Aroma is tart green apples, sweet apples, apple candy, sugar... you get the point. Smells more like hard cider, really. Candied apple explosion, and not much else. Taste isnít packed like the aroma... actually kind of thin and watered down. Little bit of wheat, crisp green apple skins, mild tartness but far from sour. Sweet and dry in the finish, but not overtly sweet, which is good. Aftertaste of light wheat and apple. Almost like Apple Jackís cereal residue. Actually not awful, possibly my favorite Shock Top to date (not saying much, though).

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours hazy yellow with quick disappearing head. Smell of apple cider. Taste is of fake apple flavor not very pleasant. Defiantly smells better than it tastes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a note of sweet apple with an underlying earthy wheat note. Flavor starts with very sweet but light apple and is balanced slightly by the earthy wheat in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. pours clean clear yellow with a white head that disappears fast. nose is loads of apple, yeast, citrus, 100% like a sour apple jolly rancher. taste is like a jolly rancher soaked in a coors. sweet, slight tang and the base of a wheat yeast. weird combo of cider and lager tasting beer. as a girly girl- i like it a lot. if i were a manly man.... probs would scoff at it.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours slightly hazed light gold into a shaker. Bright white head crackles and recedes to hug rim. Sweet apple and cinnamon aromas. Dry and sharp with rancid apple and banana front to back. Lasting rotten banana finish.
