Pours a nice, 2-finger, soapy head. A spicy, Oktoberfest-like aroma with caramel hidden behind it. A straw-burnt sienna color. Starts off a touch hoppy, with nice, sweet malt tones. There is a mild, mild caramel aspect to the maltiness which blends with the hops to make an Oktoberfest reminiscent flavor. The finish is a nice, wonderful biscuit flavor.

Overall, I like this. It's like if Oktoberfest were an Ale. Quite sessionable and pleasing.
If you like a malty brew, this will not disappoint.

Poured into tall pilsner glass, color is opaque copper, head is about 1/2" thick then dissipates to a ring and froth, some lacing.

Smell is pretty neutral grain, some light a caramel and biscuit malt notes, no hop scents noted.

Taste is a little crisp, lightly over carbonated flavors leave them somewhat bland. biggest flavor noted is caramel and biscuit malts, minor hop grassiness noted.

Mouthfeel is slighty overcarbonated and strong on the tongue, which does not allow nice lingering malt flavors.

Overall, an average amber ale, slightly overcarbonated, malt profile is pretty solid.

The Shine On is a decent session amber ale. The beer pours clear (cut off before bottle settlement could invade) with soft amber color. A 1/2 finger think head forms initially then settles leaving some lace. The really isnt much scent save for waffes of caramel malt. The taste is a basic amber ale, the sweet malt stars and the bittering hops provide a nice finish. The mouthfeel is medium to light body with decent carbonation. Overall it is a good beer.
