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!

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!

HighlanderOne (1198) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Poured from bottle. Aroma of peach schnapps. Orange gold with bit of head. Tasting canned pear syrup, and that citrus cactus thing. Actually a pretty decent brew.

actually gave above average marks for app and aroma - definitely some nice pear in aroma - was hoping this would be a good summer beer but it wasn’t really refreshing - different beer, not bad

Pours a clear coppery orange with a thin white ring. Very pleasant fruity aroma of sweet berries. Thin body with light carbonation. Taste is crisp, clean, and smooth with a refreshing berry fruit flavor. The taste isn’t imitation or flowery. Not overly sweet. Fairly simple but very enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2016 Dammit Shiner, stop this. I know what you guys are doing with trying to market to the macro crowd with an interesting beer but it just does not work. Gold color, apple sort of taste, not appalling but tastes artificial and contrived. Like the equivalent of a Big Mac.... a terrible hamburger but a tasty enough food item to eat.

Pours another fizzy head, but it does stick around longer than the soda pop heads of the other two beers. The smell shows some fruit sweetness. The smell has a fruity note, almost like a perfume, in fact. The taste brings in that perfumey fruit with a very slight tartness on the back of the throat. This may go well as a dessert beer; although most such beers are pretty strong, this 4.9% abv brew would suit a lighter palate.

Quite dark Amber, clear. Light white head. Smelled very sweet, immediately on opening the can from several feet. Strong notes of pear. Quite sweet, some very light bitter grassy notes. Kind of artificial smelling. Clean mouthfeel, light body. Good amount of carbonation. Refreshing.

It’s not really my style, but it is super hot outside, I just took the dog on a bike ride, and I’m digging this. Higher score than expected.
