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!

Lightly sweet prickly pear taste on the front. Gives way quickly to a very mild malt. Inoffensive and easy drinking.

Bottle to glass. Great aroma. Grape, wine, pear. Taste is less intense, aftertaste of baking soda. Still a good refreshing summer option. Very Southwest.

I'm new to Texas and had to try this brew. It was a nice surprise, light, low alcohol content, however great with vegetables. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At first taste this beer is shocking. It's extremely sweet. Unfortunately it taste fake sugary sweet. I had high hopes but too bad for me. Don't drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Prickly Pear? Is it a cactus? If so this is no tequila beer! It is sweet and sour and unique. Aroma is almost sweet. Taste is almost tart. with just a little bit of hops. It tastes good cold or at room temperature. For those that ever tried a lambic and hated it, you might like this taste! It is a three season beer (spring, summer, fall). Shiner did a nice job on this one! Prosit!

Drank out if bottle at picnic. Light a bit sweet. Not bad but don’t necessarily want more than one.

Amazing aroma of prickly pear, fruit, and hops. Dark amber colour no real head. Sweet refreshing taste of fruit, berries and hops. Medium body with no real aftertaste.

Bottle. Several shades darker than I expected, sturdy amber. Little to no head. The sugary sweet pear aroma wafted out as soon as the cap cracked. This drinks with a slightly odd combination of candy-like sweetness and a caramel malt. It’s not disgusting, but it’s not great, either. (#5974, 5/22/2015)

Can. Pours a mostly clear light copper color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is heavily laden with pear, but a bit of tart grape coming through behind. Taste is actually fairly crisp and easy to drink, though it comes off much drier than you’d expect. Interesting.

If your preference is for sweet, light, and fruity summer beers, this is for you. A bit more like juice than beer, but its crisp and effervescence is appealing.

This is a strange beer if there ever was one. Shiner Prickly Pear is exactly as it describes. A prickly pear beer. The thing is that it tastes like an Italian soda and doesn't taste of beer at all. It's like an Italian Soda and sparkling cider had an alcoholic prickly pear baby. Is it good? Yea. It's interesting. But it's absolutely summer only and you need to know what you're getting yourself into! - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS
