This is a very beautiful copper-orange colored brew with a fingers worth of off white head. Aroma is of pine and grapefruit. There is almost enough malt here to balence out the hop bite but I largely feel as though I’m drinking an APA. Pretty nice showing for Schell’s 150th Anniversary.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught during Winterfest 2009 in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear golden amber brew with a decent off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves behind a thick lacing. Aroma of some golden and pils malt, citrus zest, some lemon, a hint of grassy hops, and some biscuit dough. Taste is medium body, some carbonation with flavors close to an American Pale Ale with light caramel, citrus zest, some floral hops, a touch of pine and a hint of honey. Finish is semi-dry, hoppy, with a mild bitterness that follows a citrus and floral hop aftertaste.
