The only thing good about this beer is it was cold. Drank 1 and gave the other 5 back to the store without a refund. Tasted like what a beer might taste in a severely used with ground in sweat army boot. My god what were they thinking???

I found this single 12oz brown bottle in the discount bin at the Foremost Liquor store in Glendale Heights, IL for 75¢. Despite being a Bud product, there was no born on date or best before date anywhere on the bottle.
The beer poured a cloudy pale gold color and it made a 2-finger soap suds looking white head, but the head dissipated before I could even finish typing 2-finger head, and it left no lacing whatsoever.
It smells like honey, caramel, and wheat.
I can taste the honey, I can taste the caramel, and I can taste the wheat ... BUT where's the bourbon? The only other flavor I get in here is an awful medicinal taste. If there's any hops in here at all I sure can't find them, so there is nothing to balance out all the sweetness from the honey and the caramel. It's just too damn sweet - liked sweetened alcohol instead of sweetened bourbon. Yuk!
It's between light and medium bodied with higher than average carbonation.
I enjoyed the original Shock Top Belgian Wheat, but so far I haven't found any of the other flavored ones to be any good, and this one comes in ranked at the bottom of them all.

A: Pours a dark, opaque honey color with an off-white head.
S: Rich clover honey, wheat, bready malt in the nose.
T: Honey is very apparent, but it's not intensely sweet. Starts off with a light, citric honey flavor, followed by some more citrus, but this time it's more of a hoppy citrus, and some pine and wheat, finishing with a stronger, fuller honey flavor, more like clover honey than orange blossom.
M: Light bodied and smooth.
O: Not as sweet as I had expected, which is probably a good thing, but this is way underrated and the reason is clearly because it is made by the people who make Bud. Don't get me wrong, Budweiser is terrible, but Shock Top's beers aren't at all the same thing.

Poured into an IPA glass.
This burnt orange beer keeps no head and offers minimal lacing. The aroma is of fermented barley, imitation vanilla extract, and hints of honey. It tastes like imitation vanilla over wood, with somewhat of a cereal grain backbone. Mouthfeel is dry, like scratchy-throat dry. Overall, the brewer tried a little too hard to impress.
