Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of wheat and spices. Taste is spicy, wheat, a touch of chocolate, different and unique. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

It took me three bottles of this stuff for me to figure out if I liked it enough to buy again. I think I will. I like the spiciness of it, and the slight taste of chili, even though I'd like it even more if those flavors were a little stronger. The chocolate maltiness is nice, too, and overall this is a pretty snappy, tasty beer. I'm not all that familiar with the Shock Top Family... I mean, I know it's an Anheuser-Busch product... I just mean I haven't tried them all and this is the first one I've reviewed. Where was I? Oh yeah, so anyway, it's not bad. In fact, it's actually pretty good, especially if you remember to swirl the beer around a little in the bottle when there's about an inch left in it, before pouring it all into your glass. That not only gives you a little extra head, but it definitely helps bring out more of the spicy flavor in the wheat sediment at the bottom of the bottle. So yeah, I'd recommend it. Not extremely good or anything, but better than average, and definitely impressive for AB/InBev.

What better beer to pick up when browsing for something to enjoy tomorrow, Dec 21st. I decided to try one a few hours early and was surprised, both good and bad.

Poured from a bottle into a weizen glass.

Appearance - Poured nicely with a good thick head, not too dense but just right. A nice deep copper to amber color. Looks much like a typical brown ale.

Smell- Interesting, alot going on here, but none over powering. Expected overpowering peppery taste, but got a pleasant malty aroma with hints of citrus and pepper.

Taste - I expected a real punch in the face with the flurry of flavors on the bottle. I was surprised that it didn't, however it was a bit of a letdown because it was so tame. I didn't notice much if any chocolate, it's likely there but covered up. The pepper is just right, but generally mostly a malty citrus taste is most prominent on the front and back end.

Mouth feel- The mouth feel is full of citrus zing. It was good in that it was different, and in a good way. It was just different enough to enjoy over the glass, but not something I would partake on a regular basis.

Overall - Overall this is a decent diversion from the normal. I could enjoy a 6 pack no problem, but 12 would find themselves sitting in the fridge a bit.

Getting close to the apocalypse and saw this at the store and decided to give it a try. Poured from the 12oz bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Appearance: The beer is a cloudy amber to brown color with a 2 finger thick light tan head. The head is pretty good and sticks around for a while with a lasting layer after a while.

Smell: Light smell with caramel and some spice in there. Chocolate is very subtle, and no chili is apparent. Some citrus in the middle. Very faint aroma.

Taste: Pretty light, but there is a slight wheaty or citrus note up front. Some darker maltier notes follow that, but it doesn't seem to go together that well. Not much spice or chili to speak contrary to what was written on the bottle. Some bread in there, but overall light and like a maltier Shock Top.

Mouthfeel: Has some bite to it with just a bit of lingering spiciness for a brief second. I guess that's where the chili comes in rather than the taste.

Overall: Like I said just a maltier Shock Top. Not bad, not good.

I'm hoping this isn't my last beer if the world ends soon. Nothing exciting.

Pours a hazy deep brown color with copper highlights and a 3/4" cream head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving lines of lacing and a pool of foam across the surface.

Wheat, pepper, and a hint of chocolate comprise the aroma, which is pretty subtle.

The backbone of the flavor profile is wheaty, and a fruity pepper taste is evident throughout. There's a bit of chocolate at the finish, along with a peppery bite. A metallic taste surfaces later.

Body is moderate, with fairly high carbonation and a light peppery, alcohol warmth.

Overall, much more subtle in both flavor and aroma than anticipated. Pepper is not overwhelmingly hot, just noticeable. I've had light mass-produced beers with more flavor...oh,'s AB/InBev.
