Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck bottle with no freshness date. Picture of an old time saloon serving Schell beer.
Appearance: Rich and bright sunrise gold hued brew with and excellent clarity, very sticky white lace leaves rings all the way down the glass. Attractive to the eye.
Smell: Lightly sweet pale malt aroma of honey and a faint zing of lemon, trace of flowery hop within an extremely clean nose.
Taste: Light to moderate body, crisp and refreshing mouth feel with a tight and flowing carbonation. Broad malt flavour of sweet grain and mild toasted biscuit, full flavour of the malt hits hard in the middle with a continual flavour explosion of fresh whole grain crackers. Bitterness from the hops is clean and sharp and balances flawlessly with a bit of fresh flowery oil, herbal hop flavours appear middle to end. Dough malt with an almost nutty back ground adds another level of flavours to this brew. Touch of biscuity husk and hop flavour make the end long and drawn-out. Clean and semi-dry finish makes the taste buds beg for more.
Notes: This beer is shooting for the old world American pilsner style, if you have wondered what beer tasted like before Prohibition this gives and excellent glance at what the style might have been. A great beer to have around all year long. Clean and balanced, just the way it should be.

Pils pours a golden color with not much of a head. There is a nice crisp aroma with small hints of floral hops. The taste is very crisp and rich, with some noticeable hop flavors that leaves just a hint of bitterness. Good body, and very nice strong flavors. Overall its a nice strong pils, with a nice noticeable hop and bitterness.
