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.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2011 Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 8/17/11

Aroma: The nose is sweet malts, caramel, biscuit, grain, and some earth
Appearance: The pour is a mostly clear golden-orange color with a frothy off-white head
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, fairly sweet and malty, with a light earth hop finish
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a fairly lively/fizzy mouthfeel, and sticky finish
Overall Impression: Overall, I had this rating pretty much dead on. There isn’t too much for me to change with regards to the score (I’ll leave it at 2.9), but I felt it needed an update from the overall description perspective.

Overall Impression: A decent representation of the style. Haven’t had it in a while, but I drank it a few times back in the day. It’s a good malty but slightly balanced Marzen.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2010 This was a fair representation of a Marzen....better than some more prominent craft brewers around the country. Clear, straw-amber pour with white head. Aroma and flavor are typical of a Marzen, mainly malt with just a hint of hops.

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.
