Not what I was expecting from Shiner... turned out to be a good suprise. OK Marzen brew with medium body. Decent sweetness and treat this time of year. I would like to try the new batch...

Good bottle. A lot of people knock it for not being an authentic marzen. Guess what it’s made in Texas it’s not suppose to taste exactly like a German marzen

Bottle. Copper color with a nice off-white head. Spicey, caramel aroma. Grainy, sweet flavor that leaves a sacharine flavor in your mouth

Before my hiadias i had a chance to have a six pack of this at my cousins wedding. Either it was the atmosphere or the beer that was very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A solid "3" beer if ever there was one.
12 oz. brown longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a orangish/copper color, with a sticky, off-white head. Aromas are of fresh cut hay, slight breadiness, and earthy hops. Slightly fruity, also slightly sweet.
Flavors are same as the aromas. Medium mouthfeel, slick, not astringent.
Decent effort on the style.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber, small, rapidly collapsing white head. Subtle sweet caramel aroma. This sure tastes a little odd. Maple syrup sweetness with little to no hop balance. Light body, but not watery, and tingly carbonation. Predominately sweet finish with an almost undetectable hop bitterness. Not the best example of a Marzen.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cork and Bottle Liquors (formely Marcello’s), Baton Rouge, La. - 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice rich copper color with a thick, long lasting sticky off-white head. Aroma is bready and sweet, some molasses and ripening vegetable notes. Flavor has some caramel sweetness, a bit of overripe pumpkins and cotton candy. Fiinishes somewhat strong - turns just a tad bit cardboardy near the end however. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick. Overall, decent.
