In this beer blog, we are going to get into the new pale ale from Shiner Brewery. It is called Haymaker Extra Pale Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Texas Craft Brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Shiner Brewery. Let us get into this pale ale.
It has a clear golden color with semi on white head. There is not any aroma to this ale. The taste has a light earthly to slight citrus notes. The aftertaste has a slight hop bitterest that is not overly powerful. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
This small batch brew is the sixth in our Limited Edition Brewer’s Pride Craft Brew Series. Our light-bodied extra pale ale has a golden color, smooth malty flavor and clean finish. Cascade hops balance it out to create a truly refreshing session beer for those who know there’s nothing better at the end of a long day of making hay. Prosit!
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In the end, I was pretty upset that I had to buy the sampler pack. I am not a fan of all the Shiner’s beers. There is some that I can do without. It was worth it to try this beer and get more of this great brand. This beer has a nice balance and some nice hop tasting notes. I love this pale ale. I believe Shiner Brewery is starting to find themselves in the Ale world. I believe all other craft breweries will need to watch out. They make some nice and good lagers. I just wish that this beer was in 6 or 12 pack bottles in my market. This is a great beer and I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
