This is a surprisingly nice and enjoyable beer that in my book ranks among the best Shiner beers.

Dark gold/pale amber, it has a medium off-white head steadily srhinking to lasting thin foamy top and then foamy ring, a little lace.

Aroma is strong fruit (a bit like strawberry candy), grain.

Taste is nice fruit (leaning to strawberry again), very toasty grain, a little grass, well-rounded, nice firm character, a little form sweetness and bitterness, nice full feel. It is very enjoyable.

The Prickly Pear. It reminds me of dry dusty places where all you want is a refreshing gulp of brew.

A (Appearance) Poured out of a bottle into a Boulevard Tank 7 glass. There wasn't much lace to the head. It poured as a thin, frothy foam over a cider like pour.

S (Smell) Hints of apple, hints of pear, and hints of sunshine poured over lemon yogurt.

T (Taste) This was the best part for me. It was a surprisingly tart taste. In a world where hops reign, this is a queen. Sweet, yet tart. Bold, with a taste that is individually unique. While it is sweet, and tart, it doesn't conform to the idea of a "girly" drink.

M (Mouthfeel) Tingly on the inside. Bitter on the tongue.

O (Overall) This beer brings me back to my imaginary travels through the desert. I come upon an oasis, and a lovely woman awaits. She hands me a glass, with a thin frothy head. I drink deeply and I am refreshed.
