Shock Top Twisted Pretzel Wheat

This 5.1% ABV beer is from the Shock Top Brewing Company of St. Louis, Missouri (think Anheuser-Busch InBev). According to the bottle it is a Belgian-style wheat ale brewed with spices, caramel malt, and artificial flavors. 

The beer pours a dull, dark amber in color. There is a short and short-lived head of off-white foam. The beer has a soda like fizzy carbonation. The aroma is just like a fresh-baked soft pretzel, toasted, with a general “beer” aroma underneath. The taste follows the aromas, tasting just like a soft pretzel. The beer drinks easy with tingling carbonation. The mouthfeel is very light, just a touch too watery for the full pretzel flavor.
