Good summer beer. A little sweet taste more like a cider but taste like apples. The shocker made a good choice with this one.

Great flavor of a cider and a beer in one. Classic shock top logo. Apple taste is not artificial.

Drank from can. Smells like a green apple jolly rancher and tastes like it too. Slightly artificial in flavor. Hint of apple cider sourness in the finish. Not terrible but not something Iíll ever go back to.

This stuff smells and tastes exactly like a spiced version of Woodchuck Cider or any of those apple flavored alcoholic soda pops. The main difference is this is a little skunky, which is just bizarre. Itís in a bown bottle and how much hops can be possibly in this crap anyway. It pours a headless cloudy orange and has fairly mild carbonation. It claims to be a hybrid but this is really more of a cider than a beer--though not really a good cider. I suppose this stuff serves a certain purpose for a lot of people but it is not exactly what Iíd call a sophisticated beverage, designed and intentended for consumption by adults.

12 oz bottle from Kroger. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have wheat malts, tart apples, light earthy character, thin, but better than I thought it would be.

12oz bottle from Orchard Fresh, Orchard Park, NY. I was rather apprehensive having read some of hte other reviews of this, but actually itís (slightly) better than I was expecting. Itís an unappetising hazy straw pour with a thin white head; the aroma is of fresh apple, rather than cider; the taste is of rather sweet fresh apple juice as well, with an underlyign grainy body from the wheat; the finish is crisp, clean and refreshing.

Can from Albertsonís. Cidery up front with a hint of the wheat ale. Some cider sweetness follows. Fairly refreshing with a strong cider component. Good summer refresher.

This was an abomination, It was sickly sweet and belongs down a drain. It taste of mixing Strong bow cider with cruddy lager. No fridge in the hotel room, so they only got worse the warmer they got. The dreaded sugar syrup coats your tongue to further ruin your day.

Hazy yellow color , medium white head. Aroma of wheat , apple cider and honey. Cider , wheat and caramel in taste. Medium body , high carbonation. Apple and honey in aftertaste.

Bottle. Pours pale margarita gold with minimal head. Nose is earthy apple, mild honey. Tastes like a wheaty green apple cider with mild honey in the finish.
