Shiner Oktoberfest ....

Tonight I will have an Oktoberfest (seasonal) from Shiner Beers.  Twelve ounce bottle.  The web site shows 5.7% ABV and 18 IBUs.

This beer poured with a thick head that was a little lighter in color than a tan.  The beer itself is very clear, and a lighter copper in color.  The aroma is bready, with some caramel.  The bread and caramel are in the taste as well, along with a little spice.  There is some sweetness and a very mild bitterness.  A little thin and metallic on the finish.  The aftertaste is light with nothing dominating, just a mild 'beer' reminder.  This is a little milder than some similar beers, but nice and definitely worth trying.
