Shiner Birthday Beer Cold-Brew Coffee Ale

America isn’t that old of a country. But it’s older than you think. The Shiner/Spoetzl Brewer in Shiner Texas has been around for 108 years now, and for every year they brew a new and different birthday beer to celebrate their birthday, and for their 108th birthday they have brewed Shiner Cold-Brew Coffee Ale, 5.0% ABV. The coffee in this coffee ale comes from Austin’s Chameleon Cold-Brew. Shiner Cold-Brew Coffee Ale pours a dark brown color with a quickly fading tiny beige-like head that leave not traces behind. The aroma is faint with slight coffee and roasted notes. The flavor is slight with a malted roasted not with light darkish coffee. For dark ale like this it’s easy drinking. The mouth feel is on the higher side of medium with a nice smoothness to it. Shiner Cold-Brew Coffee Ale finish with a light coffee note that linger for a few moment then fades as the after taste of a faint roasted note come it with a light coffee flavor. But that doesn’t stay for long. This is good for cold-brew coffee ale, but I’d like more of a stronger coffee presence to the beer. But it is surprisingly drinkable for dark ale, and usually they aren’t. That’s a plus. Shiner Cold-Brew Coffee Ale get a B. This had great flavors and is quite smooth and drinkable. I would have this again and maybe again. Yeah it’s that easy to drink. Go and see for yourself! Cheers Please enjoy responsibly!
