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.

morrdt (681) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Six pack from the local Harris Teeter supermarket. Pours a golden amber color with a thick off white head. Aroma is lightly malty. Some caramel flavoring to it with a slight dry finish. Needs a bit more malt, but a very good, drinkable beer.

Caramel nose and taste. Not a huge fan of this one. Nowhere near Sam Adams’ Octoberfest.

(Backlog) On tap at Wurstfest in New Braunfels, TX. Somewhat clear, orange in color, with an ok cream colored head. The smell is malts, cereal, blah, and caramel. The taste is malt, caramel, cereal, and ok.

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Clear light amber color with a minimal white head. Light caramel nose, with some biscuit aromas and floral hops. Sweetish malt, some caramel, lo-med bitterness, and faint honey. Medium bodied, pretty balanced, true to style and quite OK.
