Shiner beers are from the Spoetzel Brewery in Shiner,Texas. "Nothing Finer Than a Shiner." "So Fine in a Stein!" Shiner, Texas, according to the bottle, has a population of 2,070.
This beer pours a light copper color and has a malty aroma, with a lot of fresh grain. There is a bit of a sharp note, and a tang of hops. The taste is brightly bitter, tangy hops, solid malt background with just a hint of burnt caramel. I don't know if I would call this a great "Oktoberfest" beer, but it does make for an extremely tasty American-style amber lager.
