[Poured into a mason jar]
I: Shock top is nothing new to me. I had a bottle in my fridge left over from my vegas trip and figured that I'd review it.
B: [12 FL OZ.] Generic bottle shape and decent label design, but has a good amount of information(origin, abv, date, best served, and etc). As for the cap, it has an awesome design but... god I hate twist offs.
A: A yellow hazy/pale body with a small carbonated head(fast dissipation) minimal lacing.
S: Not much to the smell. Orange citrus and bread/wheat.
T: Sweet orange citrus and biscuit bread malt.
M: Crisp, light bodied, light/med carbonation, and light alcohol presence.
O: Well there's not much to say, but that this is an adequate beer. Nothing that stands out, but I wouldn't turn one down, especially on a hot day.

12oz can with a canning code that can't be broke.
LOOK: Hazed pale straw, two finger of head.
SMELL: Orangey, coriander, perfumey, mild bready grain, clean.
TASTE: Heavy coriander, orange popsicle, wet maltiness, clean, vague spice, slightly bitter, dry grainy finish.
Really not much to this beer, a shell of the style. Looks dirty but comes off too clean. I prefer my whites a bit dirty with some fruitiness and yeast flavors. Nothing of the sort here. A last resort beer if the rest to chose from is light lagers.

Warmed from fridge temp then rolled the 475ml can. Poured into a pint glass.
A big three finger off white head on a very hazy apricot. The head diminished to a thin but persistent layer. Some patchy lacing.
Smells of coriander and bread yeast with some spicy notes.
Taste- Is almost exactly like the smells, the somewhat artificial orange and fruit gives way to bready malts with a mild hint of the yeast and a slight hop bitterness at the finish.
Smooth mouthfeel. Finishes dry.
Not a bad Wit. Not outstanding but worthy.

I had this on tap at a bar in Plainfield, IL whose name escapes me now. I ordered it on the advice of my waitress after I asked her if they carried any craft beers. Little did I know at the time that this was an Anhauser-Bush product, but in a way I'm glad I didn't know.
The beer was served in a weizen glass with 4 full fingers of creamy white head sitting on top of a cloudy, pale yellow colored liquid. An orange slice (which I didn't ask for) was hung on the side of the glass. The head lasted several minutes and the beer produced some decent lacing. A very nice looking wit.
The beer had a very wheaty smell to it with plenty of citrus fruit scents (mostly lemon and orange) along with some coriander spice.
Wheat malt backbone with perhaps some other malt variation that gives it some sweetness. Lemon. lime, and orange peel give it both fruitiness and bitterness, while the coriander gives it a good spice kick. Very well done and by far my favorite AB product for now.
Light to medium body with a medium level of carbonation.
This is very refreshing and goes down easy. No noticeable alcohol so very sessionable. This is good stuff.
