This week's Sunday Night Suds looks at Shiner Haymaker Extra Pale Ale.
I found this beer in the mix your own six aisle in the local Stop & Shop. I later learned that this brew was being reintroduced as part of the Shiner variety pack for 2016. But since Stop & Shop had this out in the mix section I did not need to buy the variety pack in order to score one of these.
But to the beer - they may call this an extra pale ale, but there is almost no ale in this beer (at least as far as I can tell). The beer poured a golden yellow with nice foam which coated the glass. There was some hops in each sip, but this beer has more lager in it than Pale Ale. There was no pine or citrus and no bitter whatsoever. The beer was mildly carbonated and within half an hour of the pour, the carbonation in the glass was negligible.
The Shiner Haymaker Extra Pale Ale is under the Kosher Supervision of the Va'ad of Detroit although there is no symbol on the the bottle. To see what the experts on Beer Advocate think about the Shiner Haymaker Extra Pale Ale, please follow this link beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/143/150607.
