2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2013 Billed as a Vienna lager, this one has the lightly toasty nose, and looks the part, pouring deep amber with a wispy white head. Hey, there’s even a bit of lacing. Unfortunately, the thin body and sloppy ending does not put this in the leagues of traditional Vienna’s. A slightly over aggressive bitterness lingers near the end of each swallow mixing with a coppery metallic (noble) twang. I also hate when these macro breweries try to mask their brand as a craft brewer. Take a hint from Michelob, they did the full flavor thing with style and proudly put their name of the bottle. Try their dunkelweizen if you don’t believe me. Third Shift should have stopped after second shift.
Nice amber color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of caramel malt, & some hops; Flavor of slight sweet malt, caramel, hops, and some nuts; Decent. phoner2 (46) - Racine, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2017
sweet like a desert cake, clean with hints of honey and malt, taste is much like an American style Octoberfest. maxwax1969 (1) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2017 does not count
I absolutely love Third Shift Beer! I have enjoyed drinking it the past 3 years and always on the look out for it. Unfortunately, availability has gone from easily being able to pick up at my nearest Kroger, Walmart, or Sherlocks Liquor Store to a dwindling product I may be able to get in about two weeks through a Sherlock’s distributor (with enough heads up). Sadly Sherlocks tell me the case of Third Shift I picked up the other day will be my last that they will be able to get for me. I am so so bummed. I have also written Kroger too because I have continued to asked for it and literally now have to pull teeth to see that they got it for me (sometimes a month later). So Coors, if discontinuing, what can I do to purchase the remainder of your Third Shift Beer? Please do not stop selling it. There is nothing else out there like it. Fat Tire may come close, but not happy having to settle for less. JPDIPSO (6262) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 8, 2016

Bottle at the Inn in Natchez, MS. Pours clear honey-gold with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma is caramel, toasted biscuits, faint earth. Medium sweet flavour with notes of brown sugar, more toasty biscuits, grains, toffee. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet, sugary finish, with more toffee, caramel, bready malts. Quite simple and sugary overall, but not terrible.

Nasty must burnt aroma. Neat Amber color, fizzy. Nasty burnt ash and cloying sweet malty bluck. No good. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Yuengling, but not quite as good, which says something considering that Yuengling isn’t all that great either. Don’t go out of your way to drink this beer. Suck it, Coors!
