Orange-copper color, clear, good head retention and lacing. Robust German malt aroma and some toasted malt in the nose. Medium-bodied, highly carbonated which is a nice balance to the sweetness of the malt. Good finish, semi-dry. A solid example of the Oktoberfest style.

Watered down iced tea colored pour with a one-finger white head. Looks decent enough. Sweet, malty nose....that’s about it. Flavor is predominatly sweet with a sourish twang....muddled with faint notes of green apples and caramel. Watery and thin. It’s easy to tell it’s a Marzen....but that ain’t saying much. Just so so. Thank God for build your own sixers.

10/8/10. 12oz bottle. Thanks, Cavie. Clear gold pour. Grainy sweet aroma and flavor. Not bad.

Pours an orange color with a small bubbly white head. Notes of brown sugar, maize, earthy hops, and green peas. Thinner mouthfeel, semi sweet finish.

Bottle pours a clear copper with a fast fading white head. Sweet malt scent with a note of caramel. Taste is not interesting at all.

12oz bottle pours clear deep copper with quick white head. The mild aroma is sugary malts, floral hops, faint graininess, lagery yeast and a sense of spicy hops or some slightly acidic off note. The taste is similar with sugary sweetness resembling dextrose infused maltiness, some growing spice and faint sweet ester like notes. Floral and sweet lagery notes greet you into the finish. Near the end of the bottle this one has grown on me some with a mix of graininess and slight esteriness. Likely on of the better Shiner brews I’ve had to date.

Bottle. Not a bad Oktoberfest but nothing inspiring. Transparent and amber appearance, not very enticing aroma, decent flavor, and a nice palate. Aroma: cereal, resin, leaves. Appearance: amber, clear, white foam. Taste: medium sweetness, lightly bitter. Palate: medium body, oily feel, average carbonation.

12oz pours a crystal clear honey orange with a nice near-two-finger white head, slightly sticky. Aroma is fairly plain with light caramel, light nutty notes, and something a little goofy...a sort of metallic twist at the end. Flavor is similarly plain, with just a bit of malty caramel and toasted nuts, almost a thinned-down marzen. Thinness of flavor may simply be due to a slightly watery mouthfeel. Nothing bad here, but there are better inexpensive marzens.
