3.4/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Has a nice ruby color with creamy lacing. I can tell it's watery just from swirling it around the glass--half a point off for that.

Unique smell. Kind of an odd sweetness to it.

Sweet malty flavor. Notes of caramel and fruit. Very little hops to speak of.

Mouthfeel is very watery.

This beer is decent, but I probably wouldn't ever get it again.

Served from a bottle

I usually steer clear of dark beers and resisted trying Schell's Dark. I often associated dark beers with being bitter and filling. This was not the case. I loved there was very little bitterness. A very refreshing beer, light malt with a great aftertaste. Not a lot of carbonation though. With some types beers I have one and I am done. I will usually have one after work and one with dinner. Goes great with meat and potatoes.
