Texas’s Shiner has been busy these days, providing new beers and a big line of seltzers as well. As we speak we’re taking a look at one in every of every, together with a seltzer with a … explicit … taste.
Shiner 1909 – A “heritage lager,” Shiner 1909 is made with heritage 2-row barley, Noble hops, and Shiner’s proprietary lager yeast. Fairly malty and crisp, this can be a Czech-style lager with a rounded physique, a little bit of apple fruit within the combine, and a gently resinous high quality to the end. A great deal of recent cereal journey with the beer from the beginning, together with a not inconsiderable degree of sweetness. All of it makes for a decidedly easy-drinking beer — albeit one which isn’t altogether advanced, heritage or no. 4.5% abv. B+ / $9 per six-pack
Shiner Juicy Dill Pickle Straight Shooter – You learn that proper. This actually is a seltzer made with precise pickles created from a recipe of Shiner’s brewmaster. It straight up smells like pickle juice, with a number of coriander and dill within the combine. There’s some sweetness on the palate which tempers the salty brine, although it stops properly wanting tasting like a candy pickle (or perhaps a bread and butter selection). I used to be prepared to instantly hate this however discovered myself rapidly gravitating to the rye bread flavors and recent end, and with much more enjoyment than I had anticipated, instantly evoking a visit to a Jewish deli. It’s not one thing I’d drink every day, however one thing I’m surprisingly glad I attempted. My spouse, for the document, thought it was disgusting — and she or he loves pickles much more than me. She’s flawed, however I get it. 4.5% abv. B+ / $8 per six-pack
