Notes/Commercial Description:
Originally brewed in 1984, Schell's Pils is a shining example of the true European Pilsner style beer. Brewed with 100 percent barley malt, where the Sterling Hop flavor is showcased. Its full hop characteristic and delicate aroma were developed in Pilsen, Bohemia around 1840. This style was widely copied by early American breweries. Over the years, however, it has been lost to the much lighter-bodied, low-hopped relatives we refer to as American "Premium Category" beer.

Pretty golden color. Startlingly clear. White head.

Nice malty, grainy aroma. Also smell grapefruit or something.

Prevalent malt flavor. Also tastes of corn. Some hops in the finish.

Mouthfeel is a little thin.

Pretty good beer overall. Reminds me a little of Grain Belt.
