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?

Lubiere (9793) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2006
Clear reddish brown in colour, with a moka quickly dissipating head. Sweet caramel with hints of oxidation, and fruits, like prunes or plums. In mouth, a sweet malt with nutty notes, no hops, a bit harsh in aftertaste. Rather light bodied. Bottle from Piscator, merci Kris!

hopdog (8824) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2006
12oz bottle shared courtesy of weeare138. Poured a deep orange color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, and has a roastiness to it. Tastes of weaker caramel and nothing else to really note or that really stood out. Thin and watery body. Palate cleanser, next...

DocLock (7745) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Deep copper pour, with medium white head. malty, fruity, slightly floral, spicy, sour aroma. Tastes malty, with a slight tartness at the finsih, coupled with a definite cognacy aftertaste. Slightly light in palate for a bock, but not bad.

jercraigs (7657) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2004
Dark caramel amber colour with a moderate off white head. Aroma is sweetly malty with a touch of caramel. Flavour is sweetly malty with some toffee flavours over mild alcohol notes. Palate and flavour is lighter than the doppelbock which i think is definitely the better of the two. Thanks obisbeer.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Pours a clear dark bronze copper with a large, frothy, thin-lacing tannish head. Aroma of lightly toasty caramel malts and a touch of German hops and lager yeast. Body starts with a mild light sweetness, some bittering noble hops and an authentic bittersweet finish. A decent bock but might be a tad too bitter for the style.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 22, 2006
Bottled. Poured a clear garnet/amber with a medium cap of off-white head. The nose was full of artificial sweetener and caramel... maybe a little toffee and floral, but not much. The flavor was sweet, too.. some caramel, some toffee, but very artificial feeling. Light-bodied and slicker on the palate with a tacky finish. Not very good.

Have had this on tap and from the bottle. Not a bad entry from an otherwise mediocre brewery.
