12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. The bottleneck has a code 12 307 DD22 printed on it, so perhaps that means something. My guess is that this beer is from sometime in 2012, so not exactly the freshest pickings available, although considering it is an Anheuser-Busch product, I'm not expecting much anyway.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass, for the sake of knowledge.

A - Aggressive pour straight down the center yields about one finger of doughy fluffy off-white head on top of a bloody ruby colored body. In this beer's defense, it doesn't look nearly as bad as it actually is.

S - Smell is of stale dusty caramel malts, with perhaps some "midnight wheat", some unidentifiable spices, and perhaps the faintest hint of what is supposed to be chile spice. Pretty nonexistent, though.

T - I can actually taste what I think is the chocolate malts with some sublte cocoa presence, the faintest bit of chile spice, and some wheat grains, so I guess this beer does actually deliver what the label suggests, although very little of it. Still, the subtle chocolate presence is a surprise to me, since I was unable to detect any of it the last few bottles of this that I drank. Finishes with just a slight bit of peppery chile heat.

M - Feel is thin, watery, sugary, sticky, with some mild heat from the chile spice.

Overall, this is about what I expected it to be, considering the source. Probably a bit old at this point, although I think it hardly matters much in this case. Definitely not a complex or interesting brew at all; probably only good for those easing their way into more flavorful beers. The only reason I bought it was because the guys at the beer store gave it to me for $6.99.

I was pleasantly surprised by the Shock Top offering of "end of the world midnight wheat". I picked up a twelve pack for 11.99 and I consider the money well spent. Do not be turned off by the chili flavoring as it is not too pronounced and actually adds something to this brew. If you can get any of the Shock Top offerings at a decent price, they should be considered.
