COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
’Tis the Season for Cheer

Happy Holidays from the "Little Brewery" in Shiner, TX. We hope you enjoy your Shiner Cheer, an Old World Dunkelweizen brewed with Texas peaches and roasted pecans. The malty flavors of this dark wheat ale are enhanced through the use of malted barley and wheat. And Kräusening ensures a smoothnessthat makes the subtle peach and pecan flavors all the more satisfying. May your days be merry and bright and your Shiner be cold.

PROSIT!

12oz twist- off bottle. Mahogany pour, thin tan head. Perfume aroma of peaches & oily pecans, covered in chocolate. Thin and light bodied (like most Shiner beers). This is full flavored. Finishes with a flavor of grilled peaches, very fruity. Hint of candied pecans. Smooth and creamy. Quite an amazing blend of flavors. I am impressed.

Great looking, festooned 12 oz. bottle (great design) yields a clear, dark amber beer with a sizable, fairly long-lasting tan head. There was some adequate lacing. The advertised peach component is easy to spot in the nose and mid-palate flavor profile, but it’s not overpowering. I missed the pecan adjunct, but may’ve mistaken it for vanilla. Palate entry and finish are fairly well-balanced and there’s a pleasant and lingering aftertaste. A good pick if you like fruit beer.

Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - JAN 25, 2010
For some reason Shiner is everywhere in California, and for cheap, me likey. Comparing this to the other winter beers, this one was a bit much on the "drinking a cake" thing. Yes you get a pecan flavor and peaches, but really, not the best in a beer. poured dark, little head, sweet candy taste. Overall, this was ok, not bad, they did explain the beer on the bottle and it tasted like it said.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Pours dark red with an off-white head. Aroma is strong peaches and maybe some pecans. Flavor is pecan, caramel malt and peaches. Quite a bit of nuttyness in the flavor and it finishes slightly bitter. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. I think this is targeted towards macro drinkers but it is an interesting beer anyway. Not bad overall.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Pours a really nice chestnut brown with an off white head. Aroma is huge on the fruit notes with some mild malt undertones. Flavor is similar bt is really sweet. Almost like straight peach juice. Not bad but a little sweet.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 8, 2010
12oz - The Wine Source. Dark copper, creamy off white head. Soft toasted peach aromas ride undercurrents of toffee nut-like tones. Simialar in flavor with notes of dried peach and nutty caramel balancing well throughout. Just a touch of backend bitterness pull this together well. Medium bodied, soft carboantion, soft fruity nut finish. Honestly not expecting much here, but was pleasantly suprise. Well done...

FROTHINGSLOSH (5095) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium brown color with a medium sized dark tan head. The aroma was light peach, nut and caramel. The flavor was tart peaches, sweet malts, toasted caramel and pecan. The finish was long, sweet toasted caramel and fruit. Fairly full bodied. Well done.

BuckeyeBoy (2876) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Pours out a mahogany topped with a small off-white head. Aroma of fruit peach to be more on the nose. Taste was more of the peach and a little wheat. Not really doing it for me.

Delicious surprise in a bottle. Retro label led me to worry all the goodness had gone into the label. Not so, as this beer is a delightful holiday treat. Peach/strawberry aroma yields to a buttery peach flavor - peach cobbler in a bottle. We only purchased a single and now I have beer drinkers remorse; alas there is no more to be found in the metro.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Bottled. Poured clear cola brown with a lovely initial cap of beige head. The aroma picked up clean, fresh peaches and caramel with touches of honey and vanilla.. warm, darker spices played well against the peaches. The flavor found tart peaches throughout with sweetened peach meat settling onto the grainy middle.. caramel and a little molasses supported.. finished a bit too sugary, but it did pick up some nice toasted pecan. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation on the palate.. spicy and warm in the end.. not bad, but the nose was the best part.
