3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle available in grocery stores all across America. Why do I feel the need to buy the newest Shock Top beers whenever they show up? Morbid curiosity, maybe? Pours cloudy orange-yellow with a quickly collapsing white head. Aroma is predominantly cider with a bit of wheat in the background, with floral perfumey notes and maybe some Off mosquito repellant--or maybe this beer conjures up summertime memories for whatever reason. Tastes like a cider but has the mouthfeel of a wheat beer. This is pretty odd. I canít say it tastes bad, because it doesnít. There is a slight chemical off-note that isnít too distracting, really. Mouthfeel is creamy like a nice wheat beer. Not bad for a Shock Top, but I still feel a little lame drinking this.

Poured from bottle hazy golden color with a thin white head. Aromas of jolly rancher green apple. Taste is sweet but not cloying. Would be refreshing on a hot day.

Itís sweet, but itís good. The taste of apple is pretty overwhelming.. itís got some bitter fizz at the end, but itís a great summer beer.

>> Hazy straw pour, okay foam. Green apple Jolly Rancher nose all the way. Taste is green apple Jolly Rancher, mild tartness, spice, medium sugar. Drinkable, but kidsí candy forward, more a novelty for those that probably arenít into beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- You can really smell the apple not much beer aroma
Appearance- This is a fairly nice looking murky off yellow color with a small white head
Taste - Has a very apple flavored taste with a small beer bite at the end. Not bad for me but many purists will probably not like.
Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate to heavy carbonation with a thin texture.
Overall - This is an ok beer, I prefer the original version of Shock Top in the Shock Top stable. I would say this is middle of the road.
