A: hazy copper/orange in a tall glass.

S: apple and spices.

T: apple and wheat.

M: fairly weak.

O: better than hard cider, but not a beer I'd go out of my way to order. Inoffensive taste, not great but not awful either. AB is trying to convince people that Shock Top is a craft beer, and that's just not truth in advertising.

This beer pours with a finger and a half, fine-bubbled head. This head is fluorescent white head and dissolves quickly. This beer is a hazy, golden orange color. The nose is completely green apple. The initial taste is a strong, tart green apple morphing into a Jolly Rancher Sour Apple sort of sweet apple flavor. Acid and metal tastes are apparent. Fades to a simple, satisfying wheat flavor finish. It's a nice, crisp beer when you're in the mood for an easy drinking fruit beer.
