This small batch brew is the third in our Limited Edition Brewer’s Pride Craft Brew Series. A combination of Citra and US Golding hops gives this refreshing lager its citrus flavor and floral aroma. The brew’s signature tartness comes from the fruit of the prickly pear, a cactus native to our brewery’s landscape that’s hearty, rugged and unmistakably unique - qualities we surely appreciate. Prosit!

Bottle; copper, dark gold color with a frothy whitish head. Aroma of citrus, prickly pear?, and wheat. Pretty vibrant aroma. Flavor was a bit strange; pear, a touch watery and wheaty. Aroma was better, but not much.

Pours with a long lasting off white head.. the brew itself is fizzy orange. Nose shows bright/up-front watermelon and pink bubblegum... I guess this is the prickly pear!! Flavor shows the same decent fruitiness but a bigger pale malt/wheaty element helps push but mutes the fruits. Light fizzy carbonation on a light bodied beer.... Okay... I would drink this again.. I guess.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2013
A very light, clear amber color. Holds a small white head. Aroma has a very nice prickly pear character with a very small hint of sweet. Flavor is light, refreshing, fruity cactus with a very mild malt backbone. The bite is too strong but the full taste and light body help make up for that.

I found one of these in a specialty brew place and actually enjoyed the slight tartness that comes from the Prickly pear added. It was amazingly refreshing on a hot Texas day. Sadly, the distribution of many of Shiner’s craft series seems to be very limited.

DialSquare (3114) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Clear copper pour with a huge pillowy head. Highly carbonated. Aroma is muted sour watermelon. Tastes are pear, little floral, kinda watery. It doesn’t taste bad - just not a lot happening.
