Beer Advent Calendar: Day 5

Day-5

Shiner Holiday Cheer

ABV: 5.4%


Reactions and Insights
Blech, ugh, way too sweet. A malt lollypop with a fakey fruit coating. It’s like a Jolly Rancher in the form of beer.

Would I drink a case of it? 
NO.

OK, but would I drink a six-pack of it?
No. I made Dad taste it and he liked it a lot, so I poured him half a glass. He was eating chocolate at the time. He said it’s the only holiday beer he’s ever liked, but he would only drink one of them. He believes he liked it because it complemented the chocolate.

My initial reaction was very negative, but as with other holiday styles, I don’t actually mind sipping it. Except immediately after sipping it.

Did it contribute to my holiday spirit?
A tiny bit, mostly thanks to the label.

Beth’s Grade
4.0

Objective Grade
6.5

Label Notes
This is a very Christmas-y label with great retro fonts and colors, as well as some mistletoe and sparkle shapes. 9/10.

  1. They were offering it at the restaurant where we ate dinner tonight. The guy at the table next to me asked the waitress about it and she told him it was really good. I wanted to say, “No it isn’t!”
