The Full Review
Brewed since 1996, Shiner Oktoberfest has earned its fair share of accolades. This is unsurprising, considering its Bavarian roots; Spoetzel Brewery's first brewmaster hailed from the region, and the brewery continues its German-inspired traditions today. Shiner Oktoberfest pours bright bronze with a beige head. Aromas of bread crust and caramel mingle on the nose, opening up to caramel malt-driven sweetness. Hallertau and Hersbrucker hops bring the bitterness, though, which plays on the palate from start to finish. This is no Oktoberfest for those with a sweet tooth.
