It would be more educational to do blind tastings of these industrial brews. It's so easy to have prejudices, deserved or not. From the 12 oz bottle from the supermarket. My first Shock Top.
These guys know about carbonation. The smell is not very inviting. Flavors are muted and a little muddy. This one tastes like it has some margarita mix in it. Not sweet, however. Not malty, not hoppy. It's just a beery taste with some earthy, murky flavors. I can't actually taste anything like hops, but it does have a bitter aftertaste that is far from pleasant. There's really nothing to hate in this, but it doesn't seem to have any of the good flavors of either an IPA or a Witbier. Plenty of concept, though.
