Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale

This is the last backlogged post, which is nice. It means that I can go back to the pipe dream of updating once a day and reviewing more beers. Anyways, this is the last Shiner beer that I have in the queue to taste. If I remember correctly, this was also the first ale that Shiner put out. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 5.5%

Style: American Pale Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A mature individual stands 9.5 inches tall and weighs 12.0001 ounces. Renowned for its assertive temperament and hoppy characteristics. It has a distinguished heritage, being the product of high alpha Bravo and U.S. Golding hops, as well as two-row barley malt with a blend of Munich and caramel malts. Note the Wild Hare’s handsome red pelt and distinctive neck band, which helps distinguish it from others out in the wild. The beer enthusiast is its only known predator.”

Random: The Jets are losing, but not by as much as I thought they would.

This beer poured with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. There was a crown left on the body. The body was a clear, copper color with lots of carbonation visible. The nose had some lightly toasted malt with grass and some hop notes. The taste had a lot of citrus in it. There was tangerine and orange along with green apple. There was grass and moderate bitterness as well. The body was on the typical for the style with high carbonation. It had a long finish with generous citrus notes. This wasn’t one of the best pale ales I’ve ever had, but it went down easily. If someone handed it to me, I would have it again.
