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.

Brouwerij (889) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with rapidly settling, coarse white head. No lacing. Aroma is sweet, malty, mild toffee. Flavor is sweet, mild malt, with a bitter, slightly off finish. Moderate carbonation, light body, and watery texture. Mild, not so good.

Bottle gift. Thin body. Mild aromas and flavor of caramel malt and spice. Not a bad brew, but could use a bit more umph!

ansermadide (1464) - Kyle, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2013
It’s golden amber in color, with a white head and no retention. The aroma is of sweet, almost burnt caramel atop a smooth pillow of a lager-like body, but without any nasty sulfuric lager characteristics. It’s just the same in the mouth, but the sweetness is much deeper in character, well-balanced with Munich malts, complimenting nice, earthy noble hops. It’s sweet, but not annoyingly sweet, soft, smooth, and almost too sessionable. It’s just slightly cloying, but that doesn’t take away from the beer’s enjoyability. I would have given it higher marks if it had slightly less malt sweetness and a little more hop flavor, but for what it is it’s pretty darned good.

alobar (2620) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pours clear orange-amber color with a white soapy head. Aroma of grain and caramel. Caramel, apple, and some grain flavor. Sort of slight skunk at the end. Okay.

Pours orange with a thin head. The beer has a bitter taste, not smooth like many other oktoberfest beers I’ve enjoyed. This is a bad imitation of a great beer style. I’m sorry I bought a whole six pack.

Poured from a bottle with a clear orange appearance. Strong caramel aroma with hints of grain. Like an amplified version of the German originals. More maltiness up front, more hops on the finish. Very smooth finish, crisp and full-bodied.

dmac (3754) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2013
12oz bottle given to me as a bday gift via mix six from Mike S. Poured an okay looking thinner burnt orange with an average sized foamy mostly white head. Aroma is over the top sweet, wet nuts, dough, raisins, metallic notes and wet grains. Thinner watery body with stronger carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. Flavor suprisingly is not sweet, grainy, nut shells, pennies, old toast and for some reason a hint of banana peel.

DialSquare (2316) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2013
12oz bottle from publix. Big sweet cereal and caramel malt aroma. Tastes are bready, light spice, very grainy sweet. Not for me.

Bottle. Don’t understand the low rating. This is a fairly decent Oktoberfest beer. Taste is pie spices and malt, with a hint of grain.
