2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear mahogany with tan head. Smells of peaches, malts, and other fruits perhaps. Tastes of floral hops, malts and peaches, not a bad flavor at all, though a touch sweeter than I would prefer it. The real drawback to this beer is that it’s watery. The taste is washed out, which turns a potentially good beer into an average one.

Not a bad winter beer...surprising. Dark chestnut pour with a decent eggshell head. Aroma is yeasty, honey baked biscuit, and caramel. Quite tasty and has notes of brown sugar, pecan pie, cashews, and cherry skin. Medium mouth feel...highly drinkable. Pretty good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2010 Pours a clear reddish brown with a lasting inch of head on top. The nose is robust and lively, with hints of pecan, peach, and perhaps nutmeg(?). Very thin bodied and a bit hard to pick up the individual flavors, but the flavor is roasty and tart at the same time with a nice malty complex. The same peach and pecan notes from the nose show up on the tongue, but leave a little quickly. A nice Christmas season beer if you’re not in the mood for porter/stout.

Wow this is Shiner? Maybe it was just my expectations but this one surprised the hell out of me. Tastes nutty with peach-like sweetness. Try it!

Aroma is sweet of peaches. Taste is also sweet - tastes of peaches and pecan. Pours a nice dark brown with a small white head. Nice taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear reddish brown into a stem glass with a lasting inch of head on top. The peaches come through nicely in the nose as well as caramel, cereal, toast, and nuts. The flavor is roasty and tart with a nice malty backbone. There is a lot going on in this one. Some herbal hops are noticeable along with dough, nuts, earth, and mint. The body is slightly thin with a bit of heat on the back end. Not at all what I would expect from a holiday beer but a nice departure from the norm. I wouldn’t want to drink it every day but it is certainly a well made beer.

Bottle. Individually, the nose and the appearance would be great. Together, they seem like they might not match so well. The nose is full of sweet peaches - and that’s about it. They cover up anything else that may (or may not) be going on. The beer has a reddish brown body, that, while very pretty, has me a little concerned about how the malt presence that I would associate with that color will go with the peaches. Putting aside these concerns, I take a sip and I’m not quite sure what to make of it. The peaches go pretty nice with the malt and an almost cherry like presence, but there is a bit of a sharp bite to something... not really metal, maybe medicinal and slightly astringent. Not awful, but it throws the whole thing into a bit of a tailspin towards a sweet, peachy finish.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Gift from a friend. Great pour with a nice reddish brown color and white head. Fairly intense peach flavor that became a little cloyingly sweet. Good carbonation.

Pours copper/brown with a small tan head that disapears. Aroma of caramel, pecans and peach. Taste is the same. Not a big fan of this one.
