New Beer Blog Shiner Wicked Ram IPA


image

In this beer blog, we are going to get into a new brew from Shiner Brewery.  The little brewery can do it.  It is their Wicked Ram IPA.  This is the first IPA that is being made by a traditional German brewery.   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 this craft brewery.  Let us get into this IPA.

It has a golden to light copper color with a white constant head. The aroma has a piney like notes. The taste has a earthy to piney notes with a dry hop bitter aftertaste. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Closing, I am a pretty big fan of this craft brewery.  I love the rich history of Shiner.  It is in a little town and this little brewery in the middle of it.  I do not understand why people do not like this brewery in Michigan.  This is a great brewery.  I was happy a few years back that they were going to get into the ale market.  I was pretty excited to see them making an IPA.  I like it but it is a nice beginner IPA. Asides that, a brewery that was making all lagers did a great job on their first IPA.  I will be adding this to my IPA rotation.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Shiner Haymaker Extra Pale Ale


image

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!

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/

Cheers!

New Beer Blog Shiner Bohemian Black Lager


image

In this beer blog, we are going to get into the Black Lager from Shiner Brewery.  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 this little brewery can.  Let us get into this beer.

It has a black color with a tan color head that disappears over time. There is no aroma to this black lager. The taste has a clean crisp like roasted malty notes. The aftertaste has a slight malty notes but still has a clean crisp finish like all lagers on beer market. It is pretty drinkable beer.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Here in Shiner, TX (population 2,070), we’ve been handcrafting beer since 1909.  The passion of our original brewmaster, Kosmos Spoetzl, continues to inspire our efforts today.  First brewed to commemorate our 97th anniversary, this Bohemian Black Lager remains true to the old-world heritage of the German and Czech immigrants who settled Shiner.  Imported Czech Saaz and Styrian hops, and select roasted malts make this “Schwarzbier” our darkest brew yet.  Prosit!

Closing, I have been a pretty big fan of Shiner Brewery.  When I lived in Chicago, I could find their beers everywhere.  Since I moved back to Michigan, it is pretty hard to find their beers.  I had to buy a sampler back which I am not complaining.  I do not like the fact I cannot get more Black Lager and other brews.  I like this black lager. There is not too many good Black Lagers in market.  It has a nice balance and you can drink this in the hot summer days and of course the coldest winter days.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

In closing, I am very proud of Shiner Brewery.  When I was down there, they were getting ready to open their Ale Brew House.  This brewery has come a long way in 100 years.  Happy Birthday, Shiner!  This is their first stout and their new winter seasonal.  I will have to say it is not disappointing.  I love it. It is like a chocolate cake taste but in liquid form.  It has a nice aroma and taste profile.  There is nothing more to say but this is an awesome beer.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
