This beer was brewed in celebration of the 135th Anniversary of Schellís several years ago. It was so popular, we re-introduced it under the name German Pale Ale.
Pale Ale is really a hybridóthe best characteristics of an India Pale Aleís English malts and hops, combined with a German Alt yeast. It is medium in color, with a pronounced bitterness and a pleasant flowery hop aroma. Schellís is the only brewery that produces this particular beer style.
Ingredients: Pale 2 Row, Bairdís Carastan, Bairdís Munich, and Cara Pilsner malts, Chinook, Cascade, and Kent Golding hops.

Tried this at the brewery on my way through New Ulm. A decent pale ale. Bready and light with some floral hop crispness.

Bottle. Yellow pour. Not much head but a lot of lacing. Slight hoppy smell. Floral hop taste that does not linger very long. Above average carbonation. Very decent beer.

Generic, bland, better than Sam Adams though. Biscuit with a touch of hops. Boring.

I decided to give their Pale Ale a try. While itís supposedly "steeped in German heritage"--which seems a bit odd for an English style--it can definitely be described as an American pale ale. It has more body than I expected and an East Kent Golding dry finish, which is rather pronounced. While perhaps a little thinner than most locally brewed versions, itís actually not too bad--in fact, itís surprisingly tasty--and fair representation of the style. Iím curious to try a few more of their efforts. Serving type: bottle

Not among the best, but for its dry hoppiness and decent maltiness, its not that bad.

Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma of some floral and grass, touch of sweet citrus. Taste is some citrus, grassy middle with some caramel, and a relatively sweet finish. Not a bad pale ale!

Bottle, pours a clear orange-gold body with off-white head. Perfumey aroma of citrus, grass, and floral hops with an undertone of sweet malts. Flavor is similar, with a light bitterness throughout the palate. Smooth mouthfeel; nicely carbonated. Finishes dry with a hop bitterness. Not bad - solid and very sessionable.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2010 One more from the sampler pack. Pale Ale was fairly normal, nothing wrong with that.

Amber in color. Active, small bubbles. Hoppy, floral/pine-like aroma. Bitterness is moderate.

Of the pale ales Iíve tried, I can certainly say this: "Itís a Pale ale". Keep your wits about you and when youíre at the store looking for some tasty brew and you spy this, just KEEP ON WALKING.....right to the section that has Blatz. Then laugh as you buy a case of Godís sweetest nectar for what you would have (over) paid for a six pack of this tripe. Donít question it!
