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!

Metalchopz (2317) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Part of their mixed pack in Vermont. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a frothy warm cap and minimal lacing. Fruity aromas with mild pears in there. Smells good, but the taste is too light. A little fruity but mostly yeasty with some weird grainy malt finish. Wet mouthfeel, a little oily. A little thin. Ok, but nothing too powerful. Better fruit beers out there.

Sampled at ABR 2014. Clear, golden/yellow pour. Nice fresh citrus aroma and taste in this. Some floral element as well. Decent brew.

"Pretty much bought the mix 6 for this one as the prickly pear intrigued me. Not super complex or mind blowing or anything, but most likely the best Shiner to date. The fruit is done well. Enough in the aroma and flavor that you don’t have to work for it, but light enough as to not be overbearing. Light refreshing flavor. Slightly sweet with some floral hops and a light bready backbone."

Light amber with a medium head and a candy-sweet, faint pear, floral nose. Lightly-carbonated with a watery mouthfeel followed by a slight pear, melon finish.

rougeau13 (2016) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Clear amber with a fairly long-lasting off-white head. Aroma of sweet fruit, grain, citrus, marshmallows...? Taste is fruity, semi-sweet, very slightly bitter, and grainy; kind of dull, but fortunately not nearly so sweet as the smell portends. Light bodied, a little bit dry.

Transfer from BA review on 10-17-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a lighter copper / deep amber color. Upon pouring there is a two finger white head. The head fades over a moderate amount of time to leave a decent level of lacing. Smell -The smell is very sweet and can be detected from the pour, well before bringing my nose to the glass. In the aroma are huge smells of lighter (in color) fruit aromas with big peach, pear, berry (raspberry and strawberry), kiwi, as well as some citrus. There is also a prickly pear aroma that comes through with the rest. Overall its smell is massive of sweet and smells heavily of candy; it is tasty, but rather strange for a brew. Taste - The taste begins with a lighter bready flavor and a good dose of pear, peach and berry. These taste remains relativity constant, except for an increasing prickly pear and kiwi flavor that continually grow stronger as the taste advances further on. In the end a sweet fruity flavor is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter side while the carbonation level is on the higher side. For the sweeter flavors the body and carbonation are both very fitting for the brew and make it easy drinking and more refreshing (lemonade refreshing as opposed to cold water refreshing). Overall – It was sweet and had some nice flavors, although for me it was a bit too fruity. It would likely be nice on a warmer day when looking for something sweet as well as refreshing.

cheap (4110) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2014
On tap at the bocktown during a thunderstorm. Darker yellow beer. Snell is sweet pleasant fruity perfume, just makes yer mouth water. Yes, olfactory is like candy and not at all volatile on the the nose. Thin head. Decent co2. On the first taste I’m left wondering why the taste is a little disappointing, ...... compared to the smell that is. The taste is easy going, now that I think about it. Pretty well behaved. One of the better beers I’ve had today. Not bad overall. Yes, was pleasantly happy with the whole experience.

Another bottle from the mixed-sixer. Pours out a thin light yellow. Little to no head. Fruity aromas and flavor. Thin body. Not much to cheer about here. Not my thing at all.
