Shiner Oktoberfest is not really an Oktoberfest, though only a few brewed in Munich, Germany really are. It’s not even in the same style really. The label calls this beer “Marzen-style”; I say it isn’t. Why? Vienna-Marzens are lagers, and this beer is an ale. Shiner admits as much on the label, where they call it a “deliciously festive seasonal ale.” Prost!
