Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is all apple. I could small it as I was pouring it from the can. Flavor is again all apple. This is very sweet and way artificial. There is no way AB could get this apple flavor and aroma naturally. A buck for the can b/c I wanted something light.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten after a brewery tour. Pours a dull, hazy yellow-orange with a big white head. Notes of apples, wheat, candy, and honey. Medium-bodied, with high carbonation and a muddled mouthfeel. Not much to it. But it smells good. And that gives it the edge over other fruited Shock Tops.
