Pours a light brown color with a frothy beige head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is a nice blend of peaches, caramelized pecans, wheat, toasted bread, and a hint of bourbon. The flavor has some peaches in syrup notes upfront, along with a pecan nuttiness, a bit of toasted bread and caramel, wheat twang, earthy hops, and some alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium and drinkability is pretty good. An interesting and unique dunkel, with an amazing aroma but it's too sweet to have more than one.

The Shiner Holiday Cheer was a good seasonal beer. I do not remember everything about this beer. It has been so long since I have had it, but from what I do remember it was that too strong, or too light. For a seasonal beer it was actually really good. Also the taste of this beer was not really all that bad actually.
