felsenpils (151) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
Light brown color, very little aroma. It is very hard to taste the dark malt. Appears to be a cheap adjunct beer with very little dark beer character. Another disappointment from Shell´s.

superspak (4406) - Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2015
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 8/3/2015. Pours crystal clear reddish copper/brown color with a 1 finger dense light tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, lightly creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a nice dark lager style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, clean, and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

justsayswell (260) - Mission, Kansas, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Transparent mahogany pour. Light coffee colored head that swells but disappears quickly. Little lacing. Nose is molasses, faint coffee, nutty malt. Light bodied. Taste starts out nutty with a little watery coffee, then some corn and cereal peeps through. Finishes malty and a little tangy. It’s ok for what it is.

Obfuscate (449) - Minneapolis, - JAN 14, 2015
Pretty decent session beer. Really drinkable like most Schell’s beers. Sweet caramel with a light bitterness. The ’Firebrick’ is better, try that.

Bottle from backlog notes 07. Pours amber brown in color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have mild toasted malt, light caramel, light cocoa, some earth, seems like a watered down porter, nothing really bad just flat and boring.
