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.

Its been so long since Ive had this beer, I really cant put it to words, but its the best beer Shiner ever made. I wish when they come out with their 100, they would throw this out on the market again. I hope its as good as I remember.

Maybe the best SHINER yet. Too bad you can’t get it ever again. Proud to say I got a few before they were gone.

Clear amber with a rocky 2" head. Mild, but nice smell of biscuity malts. Medium bodied. Mild flavor of lightly sweet malts with a lightly bitter, dry finish. A good summer time pounder here. 012806

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2007 By far the best Shiner I’ve had..the 97 is an o.k. black lager,the 98 is decent..but they stumbled upon a minor masterpiece w/this one a few years back to open their annvrsry line... a sweet,almost spicy maple flavor that was truly original.Here’s hoping they bring this back full-time,it puts the rest of their output to shame

Another I still have a bottle of, but for some reason I dont have any notes on it. I remember it a light nice colored beer but not one of my favorites from shiner.

(Over a year ago..) What I remember about this beer was its nice aroma and a hint of sweetness, followed by a faint caramel aftertaste. I hope when they hit 100 they bring these back as regular yearly tradition.

Good thing it is only a limited edition. Shiner would not be a popular brand if all there brews tasted like this one.

kumite56 (472) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Not bad. This beer poors a nice bronze color with an off white motly diminishing head. Light medium sweet caramel aroma. In the flavor department it is dominated by light malty and cookie flavors. Decent finish with some bitterness.

2006 bottle. Typical orangish hue with soft fizzy head. Aroma is a light caramel malt. Flavor is bland and comes across empty but doesn’t every Shiner? average at best.
