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.

Campy877 (155) - Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle pours with a very thick white head and a deep golden tan body. Taste of sweet caramel and malted barley. A little more bitter than I was expecting. Fairly average seasonal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sonnycheeba (3049) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is biscuit and cereal malts, light toast, light caramel, and some faint raisin. Flavor is pretty boring with some bready malts and a touch of caramel sweetness; dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

greenhorn1 (782) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Botte. Pours the color of pee with a think head. Sweet aroma and flavor. Mild spices. Nice bitter finish. However, this is where things go drastically sideways. For some reason, there is a nasty metallic taste in the finish. If it wasn’t for that, I would say this was just your average seasonal Marzen.

DSG (5022) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 12, 2013
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 (339) - 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.

From a bottle. Pours clear copper gold with a thin fizzy white head. Tastes like malt, a little bit sweet and nutty, a little bit musky. Low/medium body and carbonation. Not much aroma. Faint malt and musk.
