3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dirty hazy gold with a creamy/fizzy white head. Aroma is very fresh apple. I guess the Honeycrisp variety has a lot of aroma. Med minus body. The combination starts strange, and goes towards a cardboardy beer, finishing fairly sweet with some "crisp" apple notes. Lingering flavor is tart/sweet apple. Probably would seem better on a dry hot day.

Bottle. Poured hazy amber hue with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet apple spice aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth sweet spice flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Well, Shock Top doesn’t entirely suck and I come from cider country, so I’m not ashamed to admit I’m not 100% ashamed to try this. 12 ounce bottle from Total Wine Leesburg, VA. Pours a hazy orange color with a large fizzy head that fades almost immediately. Aroma of tart apples. Some mild wheat and a faint bit of graininess but pretty one note. The taste is even less complex than the aroma, just tart apples and nothing else. Meh.

355ml twist off. Hazed gold pour, brewed with cider with honeycrsip apple flavor added? Wtf. Smells like apple candy. Falvor is sweet apple, some rotten apple character, bittersweetness, soapy. Not a good example.
