Well, it is what it is. I imagine a brewer had a bar owner friend who got sick of having free pretzels on the bar, so this was a favor. It was a free 4 oz taster. It was okay. Don't know if I could drink a full one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

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 ’no show’.

Bottle. Aromas of Pretzel and wheat. Interesting beer. Taste of salty pretzel, wheat and a hint of malts. I really like the beer. I couldn’t drink it every day but it’s a good beer.

Pours a hazy brown from the bottle with thin bubbly white head. Aroma and taste of fucking pretzels, you can’t do that without some sort of artificial flavoring. Wow, nuts but weird.
