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!

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 12oz bottle in Shiner variety 6-pack. Poured into lager glass a amber color with thin white head (lacing died quickly). Aroma is floral, fruit, and candy sweetness. Taste not as sweet as nose, some tartness from prickly pear and light bitterness on the finish. Light body and very carbonated. Not too bad for a inexpensive fruit beer!

Bottle. Drank from a bottle. Aroma was a nasty fruity smell that was not appealing. Taste was even worse. Not a very good beer.

Bottle. Copper with white head. Fruity candy sweetness, lightly tart. Thinnish mouthfeel and prickly carb. Tasty but a little too sweet.

kramer (5433) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is super fruity and sweet, it smells more like candy than it does beer. The flavor is just as sweet as the aroma suggested, not sure what a prickly pear tastes like, but they must be sweet as all get out. Very one dimensional and boring stuff. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering grainy finish. Wouldn’t give this one another try.

refreshing, a very nice fruit beer that is very clean and does have the flavor of the somewhat illusive fruit.

Pours gold into a shaker. Off-white head with good retention craters as it recedes. Fruity, tart prickly pear aromas. Mild, tart fruit upfront turning to marshmallow in the medium length finish. Tastes like a white Smartie.... and I never know what thats supposed to taste like. My favorite that I have tried from Shiner.

It pours light amber in color with a small head that quickly disappears. It has citrus and floral aromas with a sweet, tart aroma of dark fruit. It has a sweet tart flavor with citrus and dark fruit like flavors that has an odd bit of sweetness to it. It is a bit lively on the palate.

Danyel (1434) - Colorado, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear brown with off-white head. Aroma is very juicy, berries, cherries, ciderlike. If I didn’t know better I’d say it was a cider. Taste is light bodied, high carbonation, med-sweet, earthy. Overall, okay.

queenholly (3580) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle. Sweet artificial fruit / Jolly Rancher aroma. Clear copper with a small off-white head. Watery artificial fruit flavor with a faint bitterness in the finish. Light watery body, soft carbonation. Blech.

Rated based on notes taken 11 Nov 2012 -- This beer surprised me. I was expecting a crappy fruit beer. Instead it’s a decent fruit beer. The prickly pear comes through pretty well in the nose and there’s just a hint of it in the flavor. Wish there was more, but not bad.

Smells sweet and slightly of plum. Tastes sweet, but not overly so. This is only slightly bitter and quite refreshing. It’s not bad on a hot day, but it’s far from memorable.
