Poured this in a tall slim 12oz glass. Has a very airy bubbly head too it. Almost like a soda. The mouth feel of it is kind of like that too, very carbonated. BUT, that is in no way a negative take on it. Just a bit different for a beer.

The flavor is unique and delicious. Peaches... Big peach taste. You can some what taste the pecans in it and a little spice of some sort. It definitely screams Christmas. Unfortunately is is a seasonal, but if you see a 6 pack in the store during the holidays, it is a must to try with friends of family.

Nice, copper colored body with a good, foamy head. Definite peach aroma along with a nice, malty character. Light, caramel malt body with a fruity tang. Medium bodied; dry finish.

Shiner created a nice, easy drinking holiday ale. The peach and pecan nuttiness are noticeable but not overpowering. Good complexity and balance with a unique and enjoyable flavor.

Poured into SN IPA glass.
Attractive pour with big full tan head and brilliantly clear dark amber body. Fresh whiff of soft peaches with a minimal artificial effect. Very soft malt backgound.
Wow what an easy drinker. Goes does quickly and smoothly. Decent complexity for a small ale. The peach is more background with a greater yeast character showing and a rather strong laying on the tongue of what seems some hops. Not picking up much of the pecans, but takes on more of a classic english ale flavors as it warms and opens up. However, it also seems to sweeten up the peach and make it seem more artificial.
Oh well. A good enough ale with a soft and smooth feel.

A. It has a redish brown head. Dark but you can see through it. Some bubbles from the middle. A good head and some lacing after.

S. It is extremely fruity. I'd say strong cherry malt.

T/M. It has a very sweet taste. The cherry definitely comes through. There's a bit of raspberry tartness there. Combined it tastes like bubble gum with malts and not bite.

O. Not enough spice for a holiday brew. But not bad at all.
