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!

Aroma is extremely floral, almost candy like. Pours a clear amber with a none lasting white head and no lacing. The taste is sweet, but not over poweringly so. The flavor reminds me of a "red" snowcone. Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, while the hops help reign in the sweetness, this is not a beer I would want to drink repeatedly.

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.

Bottle to pint glass. Was really stoked to try this but was let down. Pour is a nice amber with a big white head that recedes quickly. Aroma is awesome. Sweet fruit and citrus with a malt backbone. The taste is where this falls down. Just not very well balanced. Not enough sweet or not enough sour just kinda meh. Finish is big time carbonation. Worth a glass but not a bomber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1726) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2014
24 (!) oz bottle pours deep brown-amber with unusually coarse carbonation. Head is fairly short-lived. Aroma: fruity and floral, with some earthy/herbal hop notes. Flavor: Unusua fuity flavor with some tartness, presumably from the fruit of the prickly pear cactus. O: refreshing, unique and flavorful. Well worth trying.

crazyvin (1912) - New York, USA - MAR 13, 2014
A nice amber body with a white head, good retention. Mild fruit aroma with hints of corn. Some mild hops. Flavor was mildly sweet. and there was a nice tartness in the finish. Carbonation was slightly elevated

I really liked this shiner. Too bad I never see it anywhere. Sweet and has a prickly pear taste to it lol. I didn’t expect much but I really liked it

This is about what I would expect out of a small batch beer from Shiner. While I have had prickly pear (most often the fruit and not the leaf) before, this beer comes across as overly vegetably and otherwise thin on the palate.

A very clear light caramel color. Aroma of tart fizzy sweetness. Tastes like malty, carbonated pear soda. It’s different and weird.

I'm not really a fan of fruit beers, and this one doesn't encourage me to reconsider. Interesting but not exactly appetizing sweet aroma. Decent amber appearance. Taste is dominated by the "prickly pear" cactus flavor. Maybe a little floral hoppiness in the background. Seems a little flat and watery, might just be this particular batch. Unpleasant sour aftertaste. Overall, interesting but not something I would go out of my way to try. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
