2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle from sampler pours a clear reddish golden with practically no head and no lacing. Aroma has corn and wheat bread. Taste is neither sweet nor bitter, with coriander coming out in the short finish. Body is thin with average carbonation. This is a fairly boring, slightly spiced lager I probably won’t try again, even though I love Schell’s and support the old family-owned brewery near my hometown.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Schell jumps on the gose/ Berliner bandwagon with this Frankenstein mashup. Clear gold pour. Fizzy white head. Nose is corn, sour, yeast, grape skin. Really watery palate. Tastes like a tangy adjunct lager. Finishes dry and very slightly sour, with faint notes of armpit sweat. A sour beer for people who don’t like sour beer. Not a fan.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Dark straw color with thin white head that dissipates quickly and some lacing. Salty biscuit aroma. Effervescent salty bite upfront with biscuit malt with caramel notes. Not a particularly long finish but with a bite.

Clear red gold pour. Aroma slight grass. Tastes lager salt, sweet bread. Leans into the lager style pretty seriously.

On tap at Twins Stadium. Pours a clear a gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has an earthy wheat with a good amount of bread and a touch of salt. Flavor is similar with earthy grain and bread with a touch of salt.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is like most scrappy domestics. Flavor is saltwater with aftertaste of copper and a little corn. Not awful but really, really boring.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sorry, I didn’t get the saltiness. I got a decent vein of fruitiness, and plenty of sweetness, and it wasn’t unapproachable at all--quite drinkable. It seemed fairly well supported in the finish, too. Though it was still a fairly hum-drum kind of beer. Bottle.

Slight spicy lager tasting beer. Not my style but it’s drinkable. Not something I would get again but Schell’s makes some great beers get the Firebrick
