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.

Bottle. Had this a year ago--so bear with me. Bronze color w/ a fizzy head. Aromas: caramel and dry malt. Caramel, and nutty flavor. Expected more since the buzz was pretty big surrounding it.

Bottle. Brought back a case of this from a trip to Shiner earlier this year. Nice head and just a hint of sweetness. Another fine old world-style beer from the folks in Shiner.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light amber color with a small cream colored head. Grain and doughy flavor that is slightly hopped and has a mild sweet finish. I have been suprised by Shiner beers, pleasantly good.

Not what I was expecting from Shiner... turned out to be a good suprise. OK Marzen brew with medium body. Decent sweetness and treat this time of year. I would like to try the new batch...

Good bottle. A lot of people knock it for not being an authentic marzen. Guess what it’s made in Texas it’s not suppose to taste exactly like a German marzen
