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.

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...

Clear amber body with an off-white head. The aroma is very light, mostly caramel. The flavor is toffee and nuts. Medium/light body.

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.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - APR 9, 2006
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.

Bottle courtesy of kaggie97, Thanks Kevin! : Small, fizzy white head thats short lived, lacing is nil. Clear, copper color. Nose is grainy, doughy. Med/light body. Lightly sweet malts, a touch of butterscotch and a light fruitiness. Finish is lightly sweet.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2006
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.

PorterPounder (5491) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2006
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.
