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.

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 (5553) - 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.

thehinge (268) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 13, 2006
This was kind of underwhelming from the outset....starting to lose some respect for this brewery. This is a limited batch brew?? Aroma is bready, yeasty. Taste almost awful...sour malts of little note and no hop bite at all.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2006
(12oz bottle) Medium off-white head atop a clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, cookie. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some cookie, light metallic. Light-medium body, light acidity. Not bad, but lacks the characteristics of what I think of as a marzen.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 1, 2006
2/1/06 (bottle): Poured with a big fizzy head over a dark golden body. Highly carameled aroma. The flavor is sappily sweet, reminding me of apple schnaps ... not really diggin’ this as a maerzen.

cjkbeer (1) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2006 does not count
This IS the best beer that Shiner makes - it has more of a traditional German flavor than the basically bland bock.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2006
This beer was kind of scattered and all over the place with the flavor. A little too carbonated, sweet almost syrupy malts, some light roasty caramel flavors, and watered down cardboard covered in honey. Bland, lame

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Pours amber with a thick white head. aroma is mainly citrus and malts. Slightly sweet, malty flavor. Finish left a strange metallic feeling in my mouth.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Amber with an off white head. Aroma is lightly malted with some nutty and roasted notes. Tastes highly carbonated like carbonated water bad. Some malt, but no real taste at all. Just carbonated, fizzy, malt water. Fizzy carbon mouthfeel that ends dry.
