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.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Pours a clear amber color, small white head. Aroma is cereal malt, a little apple nuance, very grainy. Flavor is smooth, a little soapy, cereal malts, and grains, interesting.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 20, 2005
Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of citrus and malt liquor. Taste is extremely metallic with some mellowing orange notes, mainly a zest that reminds me of cleaner with some pine sol thrown in. Watery and plain.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2005
From bottle (not far from brewery though). Pours transparent amber with carbonation bubbles. Decent white foamy head that lasts a bit. Aroma is corn and some citrus. Tastes metallic. Some yeast and sweetness -- crisp finish due to slight carbonation. Otherwise seems pretty plain to me. Decent buzz though.

BeerandBlues2 (9997) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 13, 2005
12-oz. bottle. Pours brass with loads of tiny fast-rising bubbles and a small diminishing off-white head; some falling lined lacing. Light caramel malt (meal, cereal) and cardboard yeast (horse blanket) aroma and faint fruit (apple) hops. Light roasted caramel malt sweet yeast flavor with apple hops and a sour to bitter finish. Light to medium bodied and smooth, very drinkable palate.

Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Sweet up front with a balanced hop finish. Malts start with a light hint of caramel and light toast, then dry out and finishes with a grassy hop finish. My only complaint was this beer felt very thin on the palate, really felt watery, but other than that not a bad beer.

Scubatrip (602) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2005
From the bottle, pours a clear golden amber with a quickly disappearing thin white bubbly head. Aromas of malt extract and some caramel. Tastes like it smells. Some caramel, dark malts, and just a hint of citrus and fruits at the end. I like this one.

Looks pretty, but appearances can be decieving, now can’t they? Smells almost like the malt extract syrup I use for homebrewing. Tastes that way too. Way too sweet and cloying, not balanced. After I rated it I finished the glass off with a plate of cheese and crackers. This isn’t as bad when you consume it with salty foods. I’m a sucker for a good Oktoberfest but this is just not very good.

jgentgesdo (674) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Pours orange with good off-white head that laces well. Sweet, almost candy-like flavor with pumpkinspice and good malt flavors. Rather cloying finish. OK Marzen.

Courtesy of AndrewM <P> Aroma of buttered yams. Light orange color capped by a massive fuffly, white head. Very nice sweet malty profile with a bit of a sweet buttery (again) vegtal mash finish. I rather liked this and am suprised byt he low rating. I think it is a very tasty and distinct Marzen.
