Shiner Prickly Pear

Shiner beers come from the Spoetzel Brewery in Shiner, Texas (pop. 2,070). This beer is a summer seasonal, a 4.9% ABV beer brewed with the fruit of the prickly pear.

The beer pours amber in color. There is a tall, thick, foamy head of off-white. The aroma is fruity, floral, almost perfumey. The taste is toasted malt and fruit, I guess prickly pear. The beer is well carbonated, with a dry finish. The taste is not to my liking at all, a fail for me.
