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. Pours a clear copper body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is a touch husky with some caramel and Munich malt, minimal hoppiness. The flavor isn’t the cleanest, given the style. It’s a little thin as well, which makes the huskiness in here even more apparent. Finishes with a touch of light bitterness on the finish. Lighter bodied with fizzy prickly carbonation and a lingering huskiness. Meh, not an especially good example of the style.

HourGlass13 (76) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Pours a clear amber color with a small puffy white head. Aroma is Malty with a hint of fruit. Mildly sweet and yeasty. Caramel and malt round out the taste with little to no hop bite. A good easy drinking beer.

rjplumer (405) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Mild malt aroma. Head clears quick. Smooth malt taste. Clean finish. Rich clear light brown with a hint of amber. Mild sourness but finish feels clean. Another fine brew from Shiner.

freekyp (1497) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2014
A solid Oktoberfest, clean, lacking any flaws and brewed specifically to style. Medium bodied with a forward bready malt presence. Hops are there for balance and do a good job of keeping the malt sweetness from taking off. Pours a light amber with a dense two finger off white head. At 5.7%, perhaps not sessionable, but still an easy quaffer and good choice for pairing with pub grub.

jds2008 (11) - Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Deep caramel amber color with big off white head that clings to the glass, sweet and malty aroma, herbal and bitter to start, more malty and caramelly finish. Shiner is good but nothing spectacular.

Marzen. Sweet malt aroma. Very light amber appearance. Sharp bitter initial taste, not a fan of front taste. Improves as it approaches back of tongue.

EithCubes (5000) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle, screw top. Nose is lightly toasted, caramel, touch of Munich. Slightly airy, earthy and lightly green-woody hops with stronger citrus. Pours a transparent dull copper with almost no carbonation, still manages a soapy beige head. Taste is sweet but not cloying, very minor malt character but somewhat juicy, good mild citrus from the hops that cuts through, finishes bready. Very lightly spicy, a little unclean, touch airy, light-medium body. Some flaws but has good balance and excellent drinkability/repeatability.

TomTron (382) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours a clear copper with a minimal head. Faint caramel malts in the nose and some yeast. Fair amount of malts in the flavor and not much of a detectable hop presence. Drinkable but forgettable.

scoth (513) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours clear amber with a medium diminishing beige head, very fine clinging lacing. Aromas of toast, caramel, grass, nuts. Light body, smooth and creamy. Mildly sweet, a hint of citrus, lingering mild bitter finish. Very drinkable.

beastmaster (286) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Pours an orange amber color. Head is a little off white but has good foam. Nice spicy aroma, nutmeg, caramel, d sugar, and malt. Medium bodied well rounded spiced beer. Not bitter, refreshing.
