Beer Advent Day 8 - Shiner Brewer's Pride Prickly Pear

We are back in the Shiner brewery for one of their Brewer's Pride batches for Day 8 of the Beer Advent.  Shiner does something extremely interesting and also frustrating in that it sells a Family Pack.  This is a pack of 6 of their beers, five of them that are on the market, as well as one Family Pack special that isn't sold outside of it.

So the Brewer's Pride selection running now is the Shiner Prickly Pear.  I loved this beer, which means I am screwed for ever getting it again.  Getting a hold of more than one of these is impossible without buying a Family Pack.

This is a delicious little beer that has a subtle flavor that is sweet without tasting like hard cider.  I can see this going well with dessert.  It wasn't bitter at all so there isn't going to be a flavor conflict and it is just sweet enough that I could drink a few of these without getting overly tired of it.

Damn you Shiner for teasing me like this.

That is all,
