2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 Iím running out of beer.

12ozbottle into a Corsendonk badged stemmed tulip glass on 26th April 2016, Lugana Niguel at my daughters. Red hue to the mahogany body, head departed before it arrived. Sweet flavours over a red berry and malty nose, some caramel notes in the sweetness, calmed down in the sweet stakes by those aforementioned red berries and a spicy hint or two. No bread or pretzel flavours for me. Different and almost interesting, pity about the head being a íno showí.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy brown from the bottle with thin bubbly white head. Aroma and taste of fucking pretzels, you canít do that without some sort of artificial flavoring. Wow, nuts but weird.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours amber with an offwhite brown head. Smells like a pretzel, but in an artificial way. Tastes of butter, salt and a pretzel. Itís basically a standard beer with a pretzel gimmick.
A bit odd. If you want something a bit unusual then this might be the one. Other than that, nothing fantastic, but passable.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle - Pours amber and smells like a pretzel though in a vaguely artificial way. The flavor is sweet with some bready malt, caramel, and a little salt. Thereís little that makes me think of a Belgian style as the commercial deScription indicates. Ultimately itís a mediocre base beer with a gimmicky pretzel flavored addition that makes for a drinkable but unimpressive beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light leathery brown in color. Crisp pretzel aroma like a slightly burnt pizza crust. Sweet toasty malt flavor. Overall, a decent brew... Not too exciting but drinkable nonetheless.
