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.

Appearance is a clear deep golden with a medium white foam cap. Aroma is bready malt with no noticeable hop or yeast character. Taste is a rich caramel malt with a slight hint of raisin or prune. No real breadlines follows thru on the taste. Mouthfeel is medium with a moderate carbonation. Finishes with a crisp hop bite and lingering toastiness from the malt

Has a slightly sweet malt note. Clear copper/amber color. Not much hop flavor or bitterness. Somewhat watery malt character. A tannic finishing note.

Okay. I have had much better Oktoberfest beers. Still not bad bit I don't think that I would buy it again.

Honey and barley malt nose, dried leaves. Clear orange, medium head, modest lacing. Honey and cereal grain. Medium body, easy carbonation. Nice balance and pleasant intensity for a lager. Impressive offering from Shiner.

One of the best from shiner but isn't saying much based on other offerings. I actually like this but it lacked that finishing flavor and fell just a bit flat and bland on the dinish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Harvest Market. Clear golden color decent white head. Rich sweet bready pilsner with a light metallic sharpness. Earthy hop bite not rich and malty enough for the style. I could drink these, but there are much better examples of the style out there.

Pretty foul in the best of estimations. Pours orange with OK head and lacing. Very off tasting astringency here. Some malt. Avoid.

Pours copper with a big quickly dissipating big bubbly head from bottle into pint glass. Smells malty. Also tastes malty with some caramelness and a little hop. Nice and sweet. Very drinkable. Medium mouth feel.

tectactoe (3118) - Michigan, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle: Rusty amber body, excellent clarity. Small, off-white head that fades away fast. Malty aroma of toffee, stale caramel, & a strange tart twinge. Mild graininess. Flavor is highly metallic with some red grape sweetness & almost a bit of tart apple. Mild caramel malt, cardboard, & old toffee candy. A little toasty & bready with a slight touch of floral hops in the finish. Strange cheesiness comes out with some warmth. This beer is all over the place; not a good example of an Oktoberfest. Not good in general.
