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!!!

~Carry on Citizens!!!~
