Shiner Holiday Cheer
*brewery established 1909
LOOK: Pours a light brown color. Good clarity, with a soapy white head providing some lace.
SMELL: Peach and wheat, caramel and brown sugar.
TASTE: Opens up malty and full of peach, giving way to a nutty flavor from the pecans endorsed on the label. Bright peach flavor tempered by ample hops and dry wheat. Juicy fruit and even citrus notes. Toasted malt but falls a bit short, would love it to be more robust. More pecan would help as well. As is, it's still tasty.
FEEL: Medium bodied, well carbonated, fruity aftertaste.
OVERALL: A decent holiday beer, with a major peach influence. The flavor is genuine and everything more or less works. A bit light and confused, but still quite drinkable.
Serving type: bottle
