Shock Top seasonal wheat beer wasn't what I expected, wasn't as good as some of their other offerings, but it still hit the spot.
The beer poured out as a beautiful dark-honey color, very nice to my eyes. The head was thick, had staying power and with good lacing. I smelled strong scents of barley and malt with a distant hint of spice. It tasted very potent, not the sort of beer to guzzle, but to spin and take in slowly. The mouthfeel helped out with that since it rolled around my tongue thick and rich. What disappointed me was that I could only pull out the barley and malt flavors - none of the spice I smelled or cinnamon the bottle claimed.
Overall, a good beer but nothing overly spectacular.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, End of the World is very lightly colored for a beer that advertises "midnight wheat and chocolate malt", it's amber-brown at best. The head is thin and non-active. Rather than a nice semi-liquid yeast at the bottom of a wheat beer that you can gently swirl in, this beer has large chunky particulate that takes forever but eventually settles to the bottom of the glass - not very appealing. The nose is unremarkable for a chili and spiced beer, wheat and weak chocolate malt notes is all I'm getting. The taste is a little more interesting with some spicy notes and chili flavors coming through; seems overly bitter as a side effect from the spices. Mouthfeel is thin and carbonation is minimal, chunky bits lose points. Overall a miss by AB on this one in my opinion.
