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.

Bottle. Light malt note of cereal, moderate herbs for the hops, with a hint of medicine. Head is average size, frothy/rocky with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately acidic and lightly bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery but a little slick and has a lively carbonation. Drinkable, but the only aspect of this beer that says Oktoberfest for me is the appearance.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 29, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice deep copper with khaki head. The aroma is quite malty with some herbal and metallic hints, maybe some raisin and caramel. The flavor is very straightforward: Munich malt, slight herbal hops in the finish. Not much going on here, but not terrible. I would prefer it be a bit richer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Bottled. Poured clear, coppery-golden with a nice cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweeter caramel and honey notes with accents of lemon meat and a touch of leaves.. almost candied and certainly pleasant. The flavor found sweet caramel again at the core.. tart on the edges with lemon zest and a touch of earthy bitterness.. finished a little too sharp for my liking. Light-bodied with moderate carbonation on the palate.. started out alright, but didn’t really finish that way.

Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 26, 2010
12 ounce bottle opened 9/16/10. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma of toasted malts, faint fruity notes and grassy hops. The taste is toasted malts, caramel, faint berry-like fruits and a nutty, grassy finish. Medium bodied. Decent.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Pours golden amber with lots of white fluffy head. Medium aromas of cereal malt. Medium-to-full palate is creamy with note of cereal and spice. Finish is persistent. Nice malty flavors without any obvious sweetness.

(12oz bottle recommended to me by Swalden28, thanks Stephen!) rich clear orange with sparse white bubbles. Nose of attenuated grains, caramel. Taste is metallic, lightly sour like yogurt, caramel grain, light butter and light in body.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of thirdeye11) Pours a clear copper body with a spare white head. Aroma of grain, caramel, and corn husks. Flavor of caramel, grain, and some earthiness.

pauls_parade (340) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2010
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.
