COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Since 1860, Schell’s Bock meant spring was around the corner. And until recently, tradition and climate dictated the seasonality of Bock beers. Today, with the ability to control strict brewing environments, we’re able to usher in a new tradition—August Schell Caramel Bock, available year-round.
This medium-bodied, dark copper beer sports a light caramel flavor with a hint of malt sweetness. We figured beer drinkers aren’t seasonal, so why should beer be?

Definitely not a bad bock....had the right qualities. Medium bodied mouthfeel, very smooth, nice crispness in the end. The finish initially brought an annoying ceral taste, but as it warmed it mellowed into a smooth, sweet caramel taste.

Clear amber, sweet-sour aroma. Light chocolate flavor, unchallenging but quite drinkable and pleasant. Medium bodied. If I lived in Minnesota, this might be my "6-pack in the fridge" beer.

none of the flavors really jump out at you, but the ones there I like, this one is really really drinkable too

Another good beer from the Schell brewery. Their alt is amazing, and this beer is also very good, rich and dark and lovely.

There is a substantial bock tradition in the upper midwest - well, among older breweries in Wisconsin and Minnesota where German immigrants thrived. It may have deviated from the German bock tradition at some point, but the fact is that pre-micro craze breweries such as Point and Leinies, Huber and Schell, have been making solid, simple malty bocks for a good long while. And this one is, in my humble opinion, the cream of the crop.

Tasty american bock. Goregously textured malt flavor finishes sweet, but never cloying, even when warmed to room temperature. Some aniseed malt flavors as well. A spring treat.

The best American bock. It’s much, much better at the Bock festival in New Ulm than in the bottle. My rating is for the draught version at the festival. The best beer made in Minnesota.

An American Bock that has evolved over the years to become more like its German namesake. It is a solid and filling beer with a clean malt character and some unfortunate butterscotch and green apple from the yeast. Still light years in front of Huber
