It's been many years since I had the good fortune to drink Schell Pilsner (or any Schell, for that matter). Thanks to BA Marcobrau for the sample (brought back to the Windy City from the Twin Cities).
Appearance: Pale, straw yellow. Nice carbo, leaves a little lace.
Smell: Nice lightly toasted malted barley aromas. Not much hops.
Taste: Bready, earthy, nutty notes. Also has a pretty decent hop bitterness. Overall quite nice.
Mouthfeel: Slightly better-than-average malt/hop balance. Although crisp, it finishes just on this side of "a little too sweet" for me. Wish it was drier.
Drinkability: Quite good, especially on a hot summer day (which it is here in Chi-town). This beer used to be a bit hoppier - thus perhaps finishing a bit drier - as I try and remember it from over a decade ago, but I gotta hand to the folks in New Ulm: this is still a nicely made, German pilsener. It tastes more of a Bavarian-style pils (tending sweet) versus a Lower Saxony-kind of pils (tending dry). Whatever, this is nice stuff.
Serving type: bottle
