Shiner Fröst

12 oz single from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Pour is a very attractive, deep, orange gold body with a pretty good, dense well-formed head. Even some lace and pretty nice retention. Surprisingly good looking.
Carbonation is constant and the nose gives some slight sweetness.
The tastes are quite sweet with a nice malt base and light hop finish. More sweetness and some grains come through and the finish is satisfying. The aftertaste lingers with a touch of bitterness. Deeper and more complex that one might expect with some toffee like sweetness.
A little bit of slickness in the mouth, but to be honest it works quite well. Finishes creamier than the first gulps suggest.
This has the character of a beer with a lot more alcohol and reminds me a bit of a better tasting, higher ABV Euro Lager. It drinks better than I expected and is really quite tasty.
This is a very nice beer that drinks well and does a lot for the style and the brewery. Surprising on both counts.
