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.

Not the best effort from Spoetzl. Drinkable, nevertheless. Thin head . Thin body. Thin color. Pleasant on the tonjgue, but overall, remarkably unremarkable.

Poured with small off white head that was mostly diminishing. Exhibited no lacing. Body is clear with no particles and a amber/orange color. Nose was of grain, honey, and soap. Initial flavor was light and sweet with finish being bitter and slightly acidic. Finish didn’t last for very long. Body was light to medium and a little watery with a medium amount of carbonation. It’s an OK beer, but not that great really.

Bottle: Translucent orange, moderate off-white foamy head, lively carbonation, spotty lacing.   Grainy cereal aroma.   Grainy malt base, slight cardboard, not very appealing.   Body and mouthfeel are fairly moderate tho.   Similar finish, slight overcooked vegetables emerging.   Blech...

Nice ruby goldish color to it. Sweet caramel apple aroma. Taste is of hash browns that are slightly burnt and there is some serious apple vinegar in the aroma.

Staang aroma. Smelled like the laundry detergant soap you would use. Gold body with decent head. Flavor had a decent mild bitter and a mild to medium sweetness to it. Alright beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2005
Medium amber-orange hue with a medium, creamy, off-white head that is quickly diminishing. I can’t get over the fact that this smells exactly like old McDonald’s fries with ketchup. Also; cookies, metallic, herbs, dust. Moderately sweet, lightly acidic flavor. Lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter finish. Lightly astringent. Lifeless. Some malt flavors but it’s mostly grainy and salty. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

Bottle poured a gold amber with little head. Aroma is malt and hops with a sweet malt and corn flavor. Not very good.

This smelled like cat food and I was sure I wasn’t around Coconut Pete’s Meow Mix. I also picked up some pears in the aroma. A pretty flat beer with some malt showing. The flavor is dry and annoying. This is bad even for Shiner.
