Found in a Shiner Family Reunion 6-pack.
From the bottle to a Sam Adams laser-etched glass.

A - Nice golden color, with a thin and quickly dissipating head.

S - Sweet, fruity, surprisingly sour smelling. It smells slightly similar to sour candy.

T - I can taste the cactus, it's "green" tasting, kind of grassy and refreshing.

M - Medium bodied with a light aftertaste and some lingering cactus.

Summary - I really enjoyed this brew. It's better than Shiner's other fruit beer attempt "Ruby Redbird" and I would be much more likely to buy a 6-pack of this. It's different, has a unique flavor, and would go well with food or alone (which is how I drank it).

Shiner Prickly Pear pours an orange color with an off white head from a brown twelve ounce bottle. The aroma is very sweet almost to the point of being cloying. The body is quite thin, the flavor is on the sweet side, but not as sweet as one would guess from the aroma. A touch fruity, but not a lot going on. This cactus flavored beer is an interesting oddity, but hardly a compelling beer.
