Beer:  Twisted Pretzel Wheat

Comments: I’ve not enjoyed Shock Top beers (a craft-style wing of Anheuser-Busch) in the past but a friend highly recommends this beer so I thought I’d give it a try when I saw it at the store.  The beer does what it says on the label – it smells and tastes like a fresh-baked pretzel, with hints of salted caramel sweetness.  It’s a chestnut-brown, cloudy wheat beer with a foamy head.  The head evaporates quickly and leaves no lacing. The mouthfeel is thin.  It’s a quality a novelty beer.
