3.11/5  rDev -9.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance (3.00) : Small off-white head, red-amber almost cherry-brown body.

Smell (3.00) : Very clear notes of barley and a sweet nuttiness, I'm thinking almonds and sunflower?

Taste (3.25) : Caramel malts with barley.

Mouthfeel (3.00) : Not sure how I felt about the carbonation, but overall a very clean, refreshing feel.

Overall (3.00): A very okay beer, and an especially good one for the price, in my opinion.

Picked up a variety six of Shiner pretty much out of curiosity, wanted to see what they could do as I had not had any of their beers. This one surprised me, pretty good looking beer but smell had me worried. But surprised me as it was tasty. Overall not a special beer but one I would enjoy again.

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!!!
