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.

Nice easy to drink Oktoberfest from Shiner. Smooth, malty, refreshing, straightforward.

Golden orange in color... Aroma of spices... Flavor is watery and bland, very little flavor, maybe a hint of malts and spices... Poor effort

degbert (1677) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle. Nose is malt, light caramel, and a touch of apple pie filling. Pours a really pretty red-amber with a thin, quick-dissipating head. Flavor is not at all sweet, and there’s an odd metallic overtone that clashes with what I expect from a Marzen. Carbonation is too too prickly. Meh.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2010
12 oz. bottle from plaza Liquors - Pours a crystal clear copper color with a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is toasted malt and spicy hops. Flavor is toasted malt, but the hops are toned down a little. Medium body. Nothing bad about this one. I’d drink it again.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - SEP 16, 2010
This beer pours a caramel amber with a thin off white head leaving no lacing down the sides. The aromas are bread and dough. The mouthfeel is watery and mildly sweet with a little more sweetness on the back end. This was not a great representation of the style, but it was drinkable. Cheers!

topherh (1923) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Pours light amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, and brown sugar. Flavor is light caramel, buttery sugar cookie, and a little grassy hop.

Mora2000 (6155) - McKinney, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2010
The beer pours an amber/copper color with a white head. The aroma is toffee, earthy hops and surprisingly, some flowery notes. The flavor is toffee, caramel and light earthy hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not one of the best beers of this style that I have tried, but one of the better offerings from Shiner.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle pours orange-amber with an off-white head. Aroma is toffee and cardboard. Flavor shows the same with a weak earthy/grassy hop presence lingering on the finish.

A better than average Oktoberfest in my alarmingly amateur opinion. Nice vintage label.

mmmbeer (1389) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 12, 2010
12 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured transparent dull copper color, medium and lively carbonation, half finger white bubbly head wafted away within minutes to produce a white ring around the glass. Aroma of a hearty caramel malt, nuts, and a slight note of maple. Hits the mouth with a low medium body, malt is there and has alot of carmel to it, middle is a little sweet, finish is lingering and begs for colder weather. I have to say, nice showing Shiner, I’ll have to get some more!
