COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Shell’s Emerald Rye is an assertively hopped lager that features the uniquely fruity Emerald hop, while a touch of rye provides a layer of spicy complexity to a toasty malt foundation.

harrymel (1499) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Best by 16SEP13 Amber lager with a sheet of creamy foam atop a brilliantly clarified beer. Smells primarily of malt, then some corn and flour tortilla and a touch of fruity hops. Flavor is all malt, some grass, some hay, some tea. The flavor profile seems really german in the hop character, with a hint of spice and raw grassiness. Medium on full for the style with a moderate carb and a wet finish. Nice beer, I am seriously on the fence for this one. On the one hand I feel like: "well, I would drink this." on the other I say, "I can’t quite get my finger on this, so I’m uncertain of my feelings on this..." Hmmm, totally torn on this one.

Slightly hazed amber with a thin tan topper. Aroma is herbal and noble with strong rye. Easy drinking brew packs a lot of rye with pale malts and semi-noble hops and a clean boring finish.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle at Dean’s stickiest floor tasting. Pours an amber, clear beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is grainy, caramel and toffee. Flavor is quite thin and sweet. Not too special, decent brew, nothing more, nothing less.

jmgreenuk (4237) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle at Deano’s monthly tasting, September. Poured a clear chesnut brown with a thin off white head. The aroma is malty. The flavour is medium bitter with a truly awful bitter finish. One to avoid.

Bottle @ Tasting. Clear amber color, small white head. Smell malts and grains. Taste malts, rye and grains and a bit yeasty. Average body and carbonation. Hmm average at best.
