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.

From the bottle, pours a clear golden amber with a quickly disappearing thin white bubbly head. Aromas of malt extract and some caramel. Tastes like it smells. Some caramel, dark malts, and just a hint of citrus and fruits at the end. I like this one.

Looks pretty, but appearances can be decieving, now can’t they? Smells almost like the malt extract syrup I use for homebrewing. Tastes that way too. Way too sweet and cloying, not balanced. After I rated it I finished the glass off with a plate of cheese and crackers. This isn’t as bad when you consume it with salty foods. I’m a sucker for a good Oktoberfest but this is just not very good.

Pours orange with good off-white head that laces well. Sweet, almost candy-like flavor with pumpkinspice and good malt flavors. Rather cloying finish. OK Marzen.

Courtesy of AndrewM <P> Aroma of buttered yams. Light orange color capped by a massive fuffly, white head. Very nice sweet malty profile with a bit of a sweet buttery (again) vegtal mash finish. I rather liked this and am suprised byt he low rating. I think it is a very tasty and distinct Marzen.

An excellent addition for the shiner family. Light, yet full of flavor with a slight sweetness. Once, its gone, its gone a great way to start the celebration

Light for the style with a thin creamy head. Sweet and nutty caramel malt aroma a hint of vanilla. Very malty flavor with a little raisen and tanginess. Well balanced bitter finish. Has some papery flavors. Not bad for Shiner.

Bottle... Clear, golden lager with a small, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The malty nose is full of butter and caramel. Well-balanced flavor is mostly bland with just a hint of caramel carrying over from the aroma. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.

Not a bad beer by any stretch--maybe even better than Shiner Bock, which I kinda like in a weird way. I would describe this as a reasonably authentic take on teh style--very malty but perhaps w/o the munich malt presence I would normally expect and maybe a touch of corn (which I actually find pleasant). In the end, it’s just a very drinkable malty lager. Can’t go wrong.

Looks like a good Marzen with a big fluffy head. An aroma like roasting ears of corn. Flavor is ok, but very light and thin for the style.
