Shiner Ryes & Shine is quite a good/great beer... Surprisingly good. I Mean Grrreat!!!!

Ryes has a nice Caramel colour, decent head about 1" and has semi-smoked overtones.
The Rye is subtle, but you know it's there with the slight sweet/dill taste.
I think this would pair quite well with a Reuben with a Stone Ground Mustard.
I must confess, this beer makes me hungry!!!

Thank you, Shiner! Spoetzl Brewery in Beautiful Texas!!!! ..I've never tasted a rye beer, but with this entry, I really don't care to as this beer is Excellent!!!

The aroma must be the rye as it seems slightly ripe.

The color is an enchanting light brown, red, and orange like a lingering deep sunset. There's not much lacing. It's crisp and floral on the tongue. I didn't pick up an obvious chocolate or caramel flavor.

It lives up to the promises on the bottle for a "roasted sweetness" and "spicy rye." The flavor is complex. My husband likes hoppy light beers and I prefer rich dark ones. The Ryes & Shine is a unique blend of the two opposing forces that somehow work.
