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.

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.

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

Interesting fruit beer light flavors and a nice over all drinkablility. Could use more malt and fruit backing to amke this a truly awesome beer.

Points for brewing wit hthis odd ingredient, although aroma is a bit off-putting. Taste is sweet, but flat and dry. Saving grace is this beer’s beautiful look, light, lcear amber with nice fluffy head. Not sure about the taste of the prickly pear however....

Bottle; copper, dark gold color with a frothy whitish head. Aroma of citrus, prickly pear?, and wheat. Pretty vibrant aroma. Flavor was a bit strange; pear, a touch watery and wheaty. Aroma was better, but not much.

Bottle. Rich amber beer with a cream head. Malt and light fruity aroma. Malt and mineral flavor with fruitiness. Medium bodied. Malt and mineral linger with light grain and fruitiness.
