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.

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

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.

Dark brown, thin beige head. Very bready aroma. Super wheaty flavor. Not loving it.

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’.
