2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours dark amber with a fully receding off-white head. Notes of peach, tropical fruits, toffee, spice, cinnamon, and plum. Medium bodied, lightly stick with lively carbonation. Not impressed.

12 ounce bottle thanks to someone at Mikey’s beer bash. Pours a deep amber with a medium white head. A interesting nose; fruity and nutty. The flavor reminds me mostly of apricot, something odd that I guess was pecan. Pretty nice. Smooth and easygoing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light orange with a medium tan head. Very strong and slightly artificial peach aroma. Flavor is less artificial peach and actually quite pleasantly fruity, although it gets a bit sweet fairly quickly. Fairly nice, but a bit too sweet for a session.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very fruity with peaches, spices, nuts, and sadly adjunct malts. The appearance red brown with a medium clumpy head. The taste is like the aroma with a bit of the trash malts crashing the fruit party. The palate is average. Overall a nice concept that would be great if better quality ingredients were used.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
It’s a very pretty beer, deep ruby with a tan head. Fruit in the nose but also a bit of unpleasant funk. Flavor is all peach, kind of syrupy and the palate is a bit fizzy, colaish. I like the effort but doesn’t quite work.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Nice reddish hue but that’s where the good ends. Foul-smelling and funky, like curdled milk. Tastes like canned peach juice with metallic flavors and nuts blended in. Watery and weak with sour aftertaste. Nasty. Like a child’s beverage experiment. This is bad bad stuff, again from Shiner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one poured a dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma was bright artificial peaches, some nuts and sweetness. Flavor was slightly roasted malts, masked by lots of peaches and not much else.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer surprised me, as I am not a big fan of Shiner. Canned peaches on the nose, light but not overpowering fruit taste. Very decent winter beer, ont the wife may enjoy.
