3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light copper in color, thin head, some lacing. Sweet caramel malt up front with a dry finish. A little grassy and floral. It is similar to a pilsner but with more malt and a faint spiciness. Take my Native Texan card if you must, but I am not a big fan of most Shiner offerings. However, this is one of their better ones.

Another Oktoberfest that I had not rated here. Anyways this one is another example of a traditional Oktoberfest but from the others I am doing a comparison with today this one seems to lack a bit. So while still a decent Oktoberfest there are those that are a tad bit better.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle into a glass. Dark Gold pour Aroma is sweet, vegetal, and soapy. Taste is much the same...like old vegetable soup. Metallic notes throughout. Not at all enjoyable. Terrible example of the style.

Bottle. Dark gold, soapy thin 2 finger head. Aroma is corn and pilsner malt. The taste adds a very small hint of caramel,and toast/crackers. Thin body with medium carb. The finish adds an earthy hop note that lingers on the palate - nice addition for the style. Overall, pretty solid.
