3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from the homefront in Joppatowne MD. Filtered looking amber-brown color. Sugar peach aroma. I applaud Shiner for making a creative product. Nuttty, sweet, fruitcake action. Malt and spice centric, not much hoppitude to speak of. Easy drinking, medium bodied. Somewhere out in left field but I can dig it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nose is cherries, peaches, and a candied sweetness. Pours a dark brown with a fine-grained head. I definitely taste both the peaches and the pecans; thereís a fruity acidity in the front of the mouth that soon dries out into nutty toast and bitterness. Finish is clean. Unlike most Shiner products, this is actually better than it was a couple of years ago.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
To be fair Iím not a fan of peaches period, especially in beer. Almost astringent flavor and aroma - the pecan is there but the peach dominates. Bleh, not for me.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
What do they call this, a transition beer? Anyway, pours clear and ruby-colored with a decent head; the aroma is sweet, fruity and cherry. The body is thin, sweet and, again, fruity, but now something approaching apricot comes through. Maybe this is made with Texas peaches and pecans, but the fruit tastes artificial to my palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle pours a clear mahogany body with a creamy beige head that lasts the duration and deposits plenty of sticky lace. Aroma is fresh and canned peaches with toasted pecans. Creamy palate has a medium body and carbonation. Taste is peaches and pecans, a hint of wheat malt twang and some vague hop bitterness. Peaches and pecans combine for quite a unique flavor profile. Interesting.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: The fruit is very apparent, but itís cut with notes of cereal malts and possible nuttiness.
Appearance: Clear red with a thin white head that all but disappeared.
Taste: Medium sweetness, with a light bitterness and a light sourness in the aftertaste.
Body: Light body, thin texture, average carbonation with a bitter finish.
Overall: Not an unpleasant beer, and certainly drinkable. Itís not as candy as some other fruit beers, which I appreciate, but thereís really not much here. Iím just not blown away by this beer.
