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

Bottle from Pikapp327. Light brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is great pretzels! Taste is terrible pretzels... Thin.

The aroma is amazing. Really smells like pretzel and you want salt on the rim. The taste is missing something. Not full and very light. Tap

drowland (6770) - Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2015
5/24/15. On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings, Panama City. Dark al out creamy looking brown pour, small tan head, mild lacing. Crazy weird raw dough aroma, almost sourdough, salty, malt and caramel. Light sweetness in the flavor, nutty, that doughiness again, mild salt kick. Weird, not great.

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.

On tap. 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.

LetsGoState (668) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2015
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.

scooterbub (910) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - APR 3, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
