Draft at Capone’s. Pours hazy brown with tan head. Nose is caramel malt, wheat, bready. Tasted like a pretzel, pretty amazing homology.

Bottle - Pours a dark copper/brown with fizzy white head. Aroma of salty pretzels and sweet wheat malt. Flavors of malt and pecan sandies, with a caramel hint, mild hops center. Pretzel aftertaste. "These pretzels are making me thirsty!"

Budweiser tried on this one, ill give em that. It sounds good (even though I’m not a fan of pretzels) Rice, wheat, barley. Typical budweiser product. I was looking for a biscuit malt base with some sweet salty flavor. Typical lager, some wheat. blah

Brown brew with decent head that does smell a little like a pretzel. Taste is a little like a pretzel too so it is what the label said it to be. Not bad but not really loving it either so will be just a one time buy.

Caramel brown pour with bready aroma. Bready flavor-almost pretzel with lots of wheat. Okay.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Kroger. Clear dirty dark amber-brown with almost zero beige bubbles. The aroma actually does smell of pretzels with a little citrus. Tastes a bit like cardboard and light pretzel with that weird Shock Top/Blue Moon cloyingness. Light-medium bodied and lightly fizzy.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper colored beer with a minimal, white head. Aromas of salted caramel. Tastes of salty pretzel, dough, dry grains, and some caramel. Salty finish. I think this captures the pretzel flavor quite nicely. Just a bit too dry and salty. Decent beer.

As far as Shock Tops go, this is about par for the course. The flavor is pleasantly salty enough. The aroma does a decent-enough job of mimicking saltwater caramel. It is meant to be drunk from the can, since the aroma is a bit too sickly sweet even for someone as sickly sweet as myself. Mediocre but I got it cheap and I’m running out of beer.
