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!

12 oz. bottle served in my Shiner shaker- poured a transparent darkened goldenrod color, 1 finger foamy off white head formed but just didn’t lace. Aroma of pear as soon as the bottletop came off, with some apple, grass, and grain all trying to make themselves known in the background. Hits the mouth with lt. body, malt is obviously going to be weak, perfume like pear in the middle that isn’t over forceful, finish is moderately sweet yet refreshing. Good stuff maynard!

This is an interesting fruity beer. It has plenty of beer character and aroma of alcohol with a candy fruit character that is sweet enough and finishes a bit tart and refreshing. a little slick body and some malt comes and dryness in near the end. i like this. golden with hints of orange and an off white head.

Poured a dark urine colour with minimal head. Nose was of tart fruit and had me a bit worried, but the flavours are pretty "non-tart" Started a bit sweet and also had me worried, but the sweetness softness quickly.

Unique sweet/tart fruitiness from the prickly pear make this a must-try. The hops could be a bit more assertive to make it seem more like a beer than a Jarritos soda. Me like.

Central Market bottle for BYOB at Babe’s Arlington. This was part of a "family pack" and listed as the brewer’s special. Drank from the bottle. Really pretty nice overall. Sweet citrus notes, slightly tart but definitely refreshing. Well done and I’d buy it again.

The aroma is dominated by prickly pear and in the background malts and mild sweetness. The flavor is prickly pear, a hint of berries, malts, mild sweetness and a tart finish. A pretty good fruit beer, with none of the artificial or chemical/nasty tasting characteristics typical for the worst in the style.

Transparent copper color in the glass with a white head. Tart berry aroma. Pleasant balance on the palate, not overly sweet. Has a subtle hop backing towards the end.

Bottle.
Pours a decent amber with a nose of peachy strawberry and light floral grapefruit with a tinge of autumn leaves. Flavor is a peachy blast of floral sweetness, followed by a light syrup of crunchy leaves and strawberry glaze. Decent mouthfeel. I like this; refreshing, clean, and simple. Doesn’t try to be something it’s not.
