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.

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.

solidfunk (4478) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Pretty foul in the best of estimations. Pours orange with OK head and lacing. Very off tasting astringency here. Some malt. Avoid.

lownote (104) - USA - SEP 26, 2014
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 (2302) - 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.

"Moderately bready an malty up front soma and flavor with a hint of bitterness on the back end. Not far off in style but a little bit in the tame and boring side of things..."

Where and how: b.355 ml , HT
Aroma worty, bit of wet cloth with sweet malts behind. Tad plain, lacking Noble hop feel.
Appearance :
Top: lighter, off-white top, some rings on glass
Base: amber .
Palate : lighter bodied, above average carbonation. A bit watery at finish.
Taste: front with caramel sweetness. Malt work lacked some refinement. Light feel of hops on top.

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2014
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 (130) - 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.
