Winter Exchange Beer Selection: Shiner Winter Cheers


I’m behind. Apparently I’m so well known for enjoying beer and booze that everyone decided to get me just that for Christmas. Not that I’m complaining – I have at least two cases of beer that are still waiting to be cracked open. I finally got to opening my winter exchange box and I’m starting to pick my favorites. Off to our first brew – the Shiner Winter Cheers. Shiner Winter Cheers is known as a class winter brew with powerful fruity notes. Here we go…cheers!

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: Dark Red/Brown

Aroma: Smells like a fresh fruit basket ranging from citrus, figs, and berries

Taste: Strong cherry flavor in the beginning with subtle molasses. Citrus hop flavors in the back end with sweet caramel malts.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with good carbonation.

Overall: Great winter beer that’s easy to go down. It is a sweeter brew, but has a flavor that is reminiscent of the holidays.

Endless Pairing:

Cheese: The oldest cheddar you can find! Served with a few crackers and some salted almonds.

Appetizer: Fresh mozzarella and prosciutto

Entree: Lamb Stew with fingerling potatoes and sauteed spinach

Dessert: Bitter dark chocolate

Cigar: Romeo y Julieta 1875
