COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here in Shiner, TX (pop. 2,070), we’re suckers for tradition. Which is why this classic Oktoberfest brew is made with the highest quality two-row barley, Munich and caramel malts, along with German grown Hallertau Tradition and Hersbrucker hops. It’s our way of honoring our ancestors and the beer they loved to celebrate with. So raise your stein to tradition and enjoy this utterly classic brew.

At a tasting, thanks Yoav, clear light rusty orange colour, no head, melange of dried fruits - figs, raisins, carobs and a hint of dates, also earthy hint, flavour of strawberry jam, some sour bread, light coarse bitterness. Not good.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Clear light amber color with a minimal white head. Light caramel nose, with some biscuit aromas and floral hops. Sweetish malt, some caramel, lo-med bitterness, and faint honey. Medium bodied, pretty balanced, true to style and quite OK.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Yoav. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, sugary notes and light fruitiness. Sweetish flavor, caramelly, with some fruitiness, slightly candy-ish, and mild bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied.

wildbeercat (353) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 11, 2013
12floz/355ml bottle into a mug. Served cold. Aroma: Malty for sure. Almost a little fruity too, like honeydew. Mildly sweet. Kind of yeasty. Appearance: Clear, amber body with a fluffy, small, white head. Decent lacing. Taste: Caramel, some sweetness. Barely any bitterness. Just malt, no hop bite. Good stuff. Palate: Light-medium body, pretty short and malty-sweet finish. Overall: It’s no Dead Guy or Salvator, but it’s a pretty good Marzen. Approachable for new craft beer drinkers.
