Bottle from Shock Top variety twelve pack. Pours a semi clear dark amber color with a very short lived tan head. Zero lacing along the glass. Buttery pretzel on the nose. Flavor is interesting with sweet malt notes and salty pretzel finish. Give’em points for being unique, I guess, but I can’t imagine drinking more than one.

Pleasant but highly unusual aroma and flavor. InBev has taken the pretzel idea seriously and successfully. There’s so much good pretzel aroma and flavor here that there much be artificial flavors and aromatics, but they don’t strike me as artificial [excepting the buttery aspect].
O: recommended for both quality and uniqueness.

Appearance is medium white head with amber. Aroma is mostly pretzels. Taste has much less pretzel and more of a sweet malt. Overall just not enough character.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a one inch plus beige head that lasts. Taste is of pretzel, salt, malt, bread, spice and some citrus. Bready and pretzel aroma. Has a medium and slight creamy body. Kind of odd sounding, but it works.

On tap ... just had to try this one. Hazy golden color an averaged sized head. Yep, who put a pretzel in my wheat beer ... hey who put wheat on my pretzel.

This is gross, and amazing at the exact same time. I give AB props for coming up with this... It does exactly what it's supposed to... Taste like a freaking pretzel. Not sure if I'd ever want a whole beer, but it's "different".

Ok. Clearly taste the "salt." Overall not bad for something different but nothing special.

12oz into a glass. This is awesome, yet odd
A salted dough pretzel in a beer
Perfect for baseball. Not for more than one. Solid preztal taste, salt, dough, etc. Color is cloudy dark amber, which is nice. Head is flat and gone. This is fun though, soft pretzels everywhere in aroma and taste. Picked it up in the shock top 12 mixer for 10 99. Still having fun, but its a novelty.

Completely weird but when you think you had enough of it you keep sipping form it. Nice to have with friends.

Smells like old stale bar pretzel and wheat. Tastes like old stale bar pretzels
