COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark amber with minimal head. Aroma is sweet, fruity and malty. Taste is liggt bitter with a sweet finish. Weird chemical flavors up front with a little cotton candy and pear flavored hard candy in the finish. Its getting much more fruitier as it warms up though. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and a long finish. Shiner is usually pretty solid, even though most of the beers are really intro to craft stuff, but this is not good.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Pears, apples, mango, and hints of raspberry. Taste is bitter and sweet. A light breadyness, with a good dose of pear, peach and berry.

Patrickctenchi (3401) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2013
Pours clear, deep amber with a puffy white head. Niced, strong sweet pear aroma....like an asian pear... Taste is just simply pear....not too sweet, malty. Refreshing and tasty. Quite enjoyable.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is clear with a dark shade of amber, the head is thin but dense with a light tan color. The head dissipates into a creamy coating covering the body.
Aroma: The aroma smells strong of pear on the pour but after being in the glass for a minute it mellows out to a light tropical aroma with a touch of peaches.
Taste: The fruit flavors are subtle, pear and peach intertwine nicely with peach on the finish lending a slightly dry and airy finish. This is not bad at all, I enjoy this.
Palate: Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation.
Overall: This is very refreshing, I enjoy this a lot. If you like pear and peach flavors blended in nicely balanced then this is for you.

From the bottle. Smell is cherry blossom and pear. Taste is a little drier than expected and that’s a good thing. Tastes almost as much of tart cherry as it does pear. I don’t like fruit beer, but this one is just about the best I have had because it is not overpowering. Still, I’ll save the 2nd one in the pack for the wife ;)

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle. Orange-yellow colour with small beige foamy head, overpowering sweet fruity aroma, low carbonation, surprisingly non-sweet taste with very floral flavour, abrupt finish with enduring floral taste in mouth. Very unusual beer reminiscent of lambic beers.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma of sweet fruit and florals. Taste is prickly pear (I guess), citrus, malt, and florals. Unique and interesting. Might be too sweet for more than one at a sitting.

This beer’s aroma is sweet and citrusy, and the color of the beer is a brownish orange with nearly no head. When you taste it, however, you realize the aroma is a little misleading for predicting the taste, for the beer is only slightly sweet and slightly sour but quite strongly umami. The palate of the beer is a weird combination of an abrupt finish, a flat carbonation, a thin yet sticky texture, and a medium body, but it isn’t necessarily a bad weird.

Hints of cherry. Pear is a bit overwhelming for me. Just not my style but ok for what it is ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
