2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz single bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor into a pint glass. A slow, straight pour results in a clear, golden amber appearance with a fluffy off-white head and average dissipating. Mild aroma hinting at toffee, corn, cooked veggies, toasted grain, caramel malt and light earth. Similar flavor, corny, veggie, earthy, light toasty flavor with a bit of noble hop spice. A bit off and hard to drink overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy light copper color with a nice off-white head.
Sweet nutty, malty aroma.
The flavor is lightly sweet with a slight bitterness in the finish that shouldn’t be there. A bit thin.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is definitely German marzen lager with a little salty sea air. Beautiful crystal clear golden copper color with a foamy white head. The taste starts off right with toasted malt notes but then a slightly vegetal flavor sneaks in that’s not welcome. There’s also a little rusty note around the edge that’s out of place but not necessarily a bad thing. Body seems a little watery. Ends on a good note with lasting bread and noble hop flavors. Overall, not a bad Oktoberfest beer but there’s room for improvement.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a lager glass.
Appearance – the body has an orange-amber color and is topped by a moderate size, bone-colored head. The head has good retention and leaves some foamy lace on the side of the glass.
Aroma – dominated by herbal and grassy European hops. Some underlying caramel and baked bread from the malts.
Flavor – much less hoppy than one might anticipate from the nose. Still, the hops are obvious and bring some grassy and herbal flavors.
Mouthfeel –Alcohol seems a little lower than the actual 5.8 % ABV. Medium-light body with a carbonation level that is about dead medium, soft, and appropriate for style. .
Overall: A decent oktoberfest at a light price tag.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. This beer has a very clear orange color with a large white head. The aroma is mostly malt with some spice added. The taste is very malty with some hop at the end. A real good Oktoberfest offering from Shiner.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle, kind of strong on the caramel in the initial taste. A bit sweet for my liking but solid beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle - Has the sweet marzen taste to it. Slight “fall” taste to it with hints of yeast and bread. Not a fan of this style so finding a marzen I like has always been difficult.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE TASTED: September 18, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Weihenstephaner weizen... OCCASION: Another good week comes to an end... APPEARANCE: large, thick, fizzy, off-hat of a head dissipates to a ring of stray bubbles; the body is a copper orange with the minutest bubbles... AROMA: reasonable caramel is first and foremost in the profile; the grapey, slightly hoppy suggestions; honey and alcohol mush up the anticipation... PALATE: thin, bubbly, slightly warming at its end...approaching the heartiness of its genre, and appropriately sessionable... TASTE: caramel and astringency topple the taste buds, with equal share... the hops are mild.... not a fan of the overall effect...OVERALL: Expecting this to approximate an import is a pipe dream; what it does do is provide a bit more flavor with an equally drinkable body...

Crisp, simple, but overall this is pretty bland. Everything about this one is slight and mild.
