Pours out a golden yellow with a nice thick white head. Good lacing down the glass. Smells of strong malts. The taste has alot of malt taste, and for the first time, actually tastes the way the back label on a shiner says. There is a sense of hops on the back end of the flavor. The mouthfeel is pretty good, not watered down like I've come to expect from other Shiner seasonals.

A - gold with slight copper hue; slight white lace around glass

S - very malty, not much hop on the nose

T - sweet malt, don't get much hop flavor

M - dry

D - highly drinkable, great session beer

Overall, a good beer from Shiner, much better than their other xmas seasonal effot (the xmas beer, "cheer" is absolutely awful in my opinion). I'd buy and drink this again.

A - Pours up a crystal clear gold, with a white head that forms a little cap on the top.

S - Malt aroma with a slight hop accent

T - Grainy malt flavor, with hops in the finish. Both very subtle and balanced.

Shiner Fröst!!! Shiner's fall/winter seasonal sequel to the 2008 Shiner Holiday Cheer. Another great German/Czech masterpiece from the little town in Texas. As they say, "Where beer is made, life is good."

Fröst is a easy drink. Pour it into your favorite glass and notice the gold amber tone. The taste is sharp, bold and crisp with a neutral hoppy finish. The sweet malt flavor carries out until you sip again. And you know what? ...the sipping process can feel like an infinite loop. Yah, it's that good!!!

Allow me to suggest a little munchiness to compliment said brew....a tortilla toasted on a gas stove, with a comal, smother with a healthy(or unhealthy) pat of butter and a dash of salt. Sounds good doesn't it?

Enjoy this Dortmunder while it lasts!!! Shiner has CLEARLY out done themselves again.

P.S. Package design is the SHhhheeeeiii***!!!!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into tulip pint glass.

A: Bright gold colored beer with surprisingly fluffy head that faded away and left nice lacing down the glass.

S: Biscuit, sweet and the typical Shiner metallic/grain smell. (Not a bad thing)

T: Crisp, clean. Not unlike Shiner Blonde but with a more pronounced sweetness and the aforementioned head.

M: Lots of carbonation fizz with dry finish.

D: Supremely drinkable. Very nice.

It's not going to give Great Lakes' Dortmunder a run for its money, but its a good beer ... and it's not like we can get Great Lakes in San Antonio anyway.
