Schell's Pilsner


Developed in Pilsen, Bohemia around 1840, the full hop characteristic and delicate aroma was widely copied by early American breweries. It has lost out over time
to the much lighter-bodied, low-hopped relatives known as
American "Premium" beer.

A Bavarian Pilsner style beer, Schell's Pilsner is brewed with 100 percent barley
malt and showcases the imported German Hallertau hops.

I first take notice in the color, a bright golden yellow hue, and wonder what it was going taste like. With it's fruity, barley malt aroma, I couldn't wait to taste it. I then took notice in the nice head of the beer(above pic) and the lacing on the sides of the glass.


As I was tasting this Pilsner, I thought it had a bitter hoppy taste but also a good barley malt flavor. In fact, very hoppy, almost spicy due to it. Not a bad aftertaste, it's creamy on the palate.


The overall appearance and taste are very good. I would recommand it to any one who likes "true" Pilsners.

This is a little short for a review but it gets to the point that this beer is worth drinking!!! No wonder it has won several awards and those who like to know, the ABV is 5.6%.
