Copper with short lasting head. The aroma was malt with some caramel and maybe vanilla tones (but faint). The hops was nice, but the malt was very big, as it should be. There was decent carbonation and long lasting flavor. A very drinkable beer and probable Schell's best offering (from what I have sampled).

Decent golden color, clear, thick white head that clings to the glass.

Strong sweet malt aroma with some bready notes and a touch of sulfer. The hops balance nicely.

The flavor is much the same as the aroma with a good malt complexity that accents the breadiness. The hopping is pleasant, but feels a bit overdone and lingers a bit to the finish.

Overall, this one is very drinkable and I would definitely buy it again.

Sampled a 12-ounce bottle back on 10/25/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler. Poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a lighter amber in color with a 2+-finger white head. Left good lacing with each sip. The aroma is of malty grain with a hint of citrus. The taste was sweeter than the aroma with perfect carbonation. The flavors of caramel malts and grains with a hint of dark fruit and citrus. Very surprised at a good taste this type of brew was. Went down smooth and easy.
