Bottle. Pours ruby-brown with a short lived, thin head. Smells like a gummy bear. Strong malts, caramel, and candied fruit. Mellow carbonation, thin and drinkable, but with a slightly less pleasant, soapy finish. I recommend drinking very cold, else the sweetness becomes a little cloying. A fun seasonal, good to mix in with your session beers around holiday time. jhamp9 (2008) - Corinth, Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 Poured a clear red brown with a thin white head. Smell is peaches and wheat. Taste is peach, spices, and a slight bitterness that balances the ssweetness. Pretty good fruit beer. stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2011
12 oz bottle from Jonny Hockey. Light brown pour. Aroma is fruity, especially peaches/mango. Some nuttiness. Fruitier taste than I expected, tropical, peaches. Caramel malt. Some almond-like nuttiness at the end. Pretty decent. Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Smells of peaches and pecans. Pours brown and tastes much the same but less sweet. Smooth finish. wlajwl (7209) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Peaches in aroma and flavor, although not overwhelming it. Pretty decent all around.

Shiner Holiday Cheer has a thin, creamy, khaki head and a very clear, copper appearance with a few bubbles streaming up and a little bit of lacing. The aroma is overwhelmingly of peaches, but maybe one can detect some malt and water. As it warms, some sort of husk smell shows up. The taste is of peaches, nuts, barley, water, and a little touch of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Shiner Holiday Cheer finishes crisp, refreshing, mostly dry, and easy drinking. Overall, this is nice. RJT

This beer pours a deep reddish-copper color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Surprising aroma of peaches, brown sugar and malt. Light body with notes of peach, earthy malt and caramel. The finish is toasty with a short peach aftertaste. On one hand it isn’t fair to have a negative reaction to a beer based on preconceived notions of what flavors coincide with a certain season, but even if the label read "Summer Peach" it would not have been any more enjoyable. Slightly above average either way. cheap (6204) - CHINA - DEC 21, 2011
first i was thinken spice beer but now i see its a fruity beer. smell is pleasantt, a little better than the typical shiner aroma. nice dark clear pour, remnds me of an american dark lager. sure does have some peach thing in there, perhaps it comes across a little cloying or artificial. co2 is ok with ak. not too sure what holiday this is mde for. now i see what gives it the special kit, peekanns. yes, different but will not get again. some sort of sugared cough medicine for a finish. as for enjoyaqbility, probably on par with most spiced holiday, to be politically correct, beers. mikebeertaster (114) - washougal, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Nice caramel color. very smooth flavor. A great sweet smell of peach. A nice beer if you like a fruity beer.
