12oz bottle poured into a mason jar.

A: short, half-inch creamy(ish) and cream-colored head. Caramel colored and quite clear.

S: slight peach aromas that may be enhanced by the hops. on-off scent, i can't really explain, just different.

T: the pecan flavor combined with the peaches jumps at you immediately, not in a good way. the back end is total peaches. after a few sips, its not appalling.

M: a little thick as a german style, but Im probably wrong on that. Not overly carbonated.

O: At first, I absolutely hated it. The aftertaste is definitely peaches, and that isn't a terrible thing. As a recommendation, I'd say you have to have it once.

Shiner Holiday Cheer pours a dark coppery color with a good sized head.

smells strongly of peaches and pecans. there's that twinge of artificiality that i don't care for in my beer, but it comes across as good.

wow, the taste is much different than the smell. much stronger in the peach especially, but the pecan also comes through. the malt is slighlty roasted and grainy, and the earthy hops are slightly bitter. it's a bomb of artificial peachy-nuttyness.

mouthfeel medium-full, strongly carbonated. easy to drink, but not really for me. it's the overwhelming taste of peaches that turns me off to it.
