The Spoetzl Ale House, Shiner, Texas, is known for Shiner Bock. This is their pale ale and we were wondering if it’s any good.
We are still wondering.
This beer seems different each time we try it. Whether that’s our fault or not, we aren’t sure…but this is one perplexing pale ale.
To the review!
Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale Review
The bottle gives it away: a complex character to this beer, thanks to “Munich malt, (which) nicely balances the assertive character of the US Golding and Bravo hop varieties.”
Yes, it’s bitter, but we have had pale ales that were more bitter than this.
Finish is not that clean. Aroma not too powerful.
Frankly, an underwhelming beer.
Why doesn’t it say on the bottle? We have to Google the alcohol content?
We did check: ABV of 5.7%, 28 IBUs.
7 bucks for six bottles.
Metasip Grade: B-
Hmmmm. Not very memorable, and that’s its downfall.
