I'm not a fan of this. However, I don't think you'd be at the bar pounding these either, which might make you sick before you ever got drunk. So as a refreshing malty bev after a day outside, this would be fine. It manages to put a sweet fruity taste in your mouth without being too heavy. Shiner knows their stuff, and calling this a seasonal brew means they aren't committed to it full time. So you needn't be either.
