At 5% alcohol, Shiner Holiday Cheer is definitely an easy drinking beer! Personally it was my least favorite winter beer so far, although this could be blamed on the fact that it is not necessarily just an "ale." Shiner characterizes this beer as a Bavarian dark wheat. Wheat beers are way different than your typical spicy winter brew. I would have never guessed this dark wheat is brewed with peaches and and roasted pecans. I had no problem drinking the beer, but it wasn't what I had imagined. This drink is super light (and definitely not as dark in color as my picture makes it seem...it's actually a lighter amber). I would have preferred to try this beer in the fall when I'm not obsessing over stouts & spiced flavors.
