Cloudy pale gold pour with a thin, soapy white head that has decent retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma of apple Jolly Rancher, light starchy grain and a hint of sweet corny malt. Flavor is apple Jolly Rancher, starchy wheat, bitter medicinal and metallic notes, sweet bread spice and some hot, spicy, fusel-like notes. Light off dry, strachy feel throughout with a, oily undertone. Kinda gross overall, all things considered.

Cider mixed with a wheat beer... interesting taste. I liked it. Something that you should only drink in the summer and fall in my opinion

Pours yellow with a slightly unpleasant brownish tinge, cloudy, head sucks. Nose is apple. Red Delicious apple with some tartness which I suppose is the Honeycrisp "natural flavor". It smells like unfermented raw cider. Watery palate. Flavor incredibly sweet. No Belgian overtones, but regular Shock Top doesn’t have them either so why would this? Blech.

"Based on the aroma alone, which is an explosion of juicy apple and a little spice, this is easily the best Shock Top to date. Faint praise, perhaps, but still... The body and look are typically light and effervescent. The flavor is nice, though not as good as the aroma. Not much depth, but not bad either."

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy light amber with a 1/2" persistent white head, small waves of lace Taste is sweet crisp fresh apple with maybe a little malt thrown in that stays sticky sweet all the way through the finish. I guess it’s okay, but it seems far away from an actual beer

Picked this up for 1.69 a can poured into a frosted mug. Golden yellow with thin head. Smell of apples and beer. Taste the same, not as much of a cider taste, like Johhny Apple Seed or Red’s. It says honey but I don’t taste it but kind of pick up cinnamon and nutmeg. For a price of 2 for 3$ 16 oz cans two houses down from my front door this is a like a sore penis...you can’t beat it!! I don’t think this is seasonal so I hit pay dirt on this one!

Desperate in this humid oppressive heat( for Oregon) and sick of cider I snatched this like a sailor does his rum. $1.99 for 16 oz single from a Circle K store. Pours an admittedly attractive cloudy gold with a nice sized frothy /creamy white head. ’Unfortunatly the aroma is not so attractive. Totally artificial tooth rotting Jolly rancher aromas. Taste is not so bad but its still Jolly Rancher but the wheat is strong in this and tones the ultra sweet down. Making the taste tolerable. MOuthfeel is OK until the end when the sickening Jolly Rancher ( the trade mark should have been on the can) just gets sticky icky. THink I will stick with cider next time.

Sampled at Joplin Macadoodles tasting today. Not too impressed with this one: very artificial aroma and flavor, and the flavor doesn’t last long. As a fan of real honeycrisp apples, this was a letdown. Then again, it’s Shock Top, so it’s not like I had very high expectations...
