Pour from a bottle. Clear amber with a small foamy white head than disappears quickly but sticks to the glass. Aroma is light roasted malt, caramel, brown sugar and definite raisins. Taste is sweet caramel, raisins, fig, bread dough, some lemon but little acidity, slight dry yeast as it finishes. A little watery, but smooth carbonation.

Lemke10 (771) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a clear medium amber color. Doesn’t have much of a head but does leave a nice layer of lacing on the top. Not too strong of a scent with a little wheat and sweet malts. Has a nice taste to it but it’s rather weak compared to most other Central Waters Brews. Has some taste of roasted malts, a little nutty flavor, and a little hoppy spice to it. Can definitely tell this is a summer brew. Not terrible by any means but could use a little improvement in the texture and taste category.

The other raters of Shine On don’t know what they’re talking about. While Amber in color, this is a ’green’ beer in the sense of being made from sustainable materials. I can honestly say that has absolutely nothing to do with my rating. This is a true session micro brew. This beer has successfully taken the place of typical mass produced domestics for me, but by no means is Shine On typical. Amber in color and a bit caramel in aroma, this beer finishes clean, crisp, and smooth. I taste a tad bit of subtle orange peel mixed with barley, but the malt really drives this beer home. This is not a beer for the hop lover. The ABV is just right to where a 6 pack is perfect.

wlajwl (3817) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Aroma is bready malts with a hint of caramel. The flavor is bready malts, an undercurrent of caramel, mild bitterness and a slightly tart finish, mostly smooth finish.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Moderately hazed orange amber color. A little over one finger of frothy, off-white head. Retention is about average and a very small ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Toasty with a light floral hoppiness. A bit of dry nuttiness as well. Simple, but quite pleasant. 4.0 T: Like the nose, but even more well rounded. Plenty of toastiness, light floral hop flavor, nuttiness, and a balancing neutral malt sweetness. 4.0 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Crisp with a light creaminess. Good here. 4.5 D: Super tasty, clean, and infinitely drinkable. This is a damn good amber ale despite how retarded the label is. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-17-2012 02:43:29

Steasy66 (872) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2012
12 oz bottle into pint glass. A- Golden, half finger dense off-white head. S- Nothing to speak of here. T- Strange, hard to describe, tastes somewhat like skunked ruthless rye maybe? M- Fine, hard to get past the strange taste. O- Won’t be buying again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-14-2012 06:28:58

Pours orange with a white head. Subtle malt and hop aroma. Very mild flavor. Easy drinking beer.

keepersj12 (2679) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2012
This is a very nice red. Pours a light amber with red hues. The aroma is mostly sweet malt with caramel and a hint of honey. The flavor is malty sweet with the caramel and a nice hop balance, just enough to temper the sweetness. Finishes dry and crisp.

JoeinDahlem (1325) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2012
Sampled at GTMW ’11. A bright copper color with pleasant grainy nose. Has a bready taste and gentle bitterness. Full-flavored but high gulping potential.
