Pale dullish off light golden hay color with a tiny capping og off-white fizzish foam that rides to the sides quickly and remians with a powdery ascent. A few bits of lacing stick on the glass as its consumed.

Aroma is clean, fresh, and very lightly muted of husky grains, mushy corn or rice cereal, and what I think of a very tiny bit of golden raisin sweetness.

Taste is mildly grainy with a stained amount of starchy crispness that adds a tiny edge of toastyness to a lightly understated whimper of bready sweetness. Carries a light powdery dryness of bread flour coating along with a tipping grassy hop tinge that sinks in late way in the back of the palate. The only true complexity and showcasing of a pils character. Not bad really but good be stronger and bolder the whole way thru by a notch and a half.

Feel is light to medium in body, quite crisp with a tiny crunch in snap. Builds a slight sweetened backing in the mid range then goes to the bready bakery floury hop touch that adds its final touch of decent complexity.

An Ok to goodish Pils that's simple with a touch of German complexity. A definate drinker for the warmer/hotter day of Spring/Summer that screams outdoor activity refreshment.

Schell’s (not shell) pours a mostly clear golden yellow color. Decent pour with ok foam but some larger bubbles and overall the head fades quickly. Some lacing at the start but none at the end.

The smell was light even for a pilsner. If you really look some malty presence that was a familiar straw like pilsner essence. Lighter hops notes at the end as well.

The taste is more indicative. A sharp grainy taste from the malt with a decent bitterness that is mostly Saaz. The finish isn’t as dry as most pilsner but still has a good crisp finish. Could use more citrus for finishing hops. The yeast isn’t very noticeable as some could be but in my book that is good, not a fan of the skunky beers.

The body is light with good carbonation. A drier finish would be nice. Overall a nice 6 to pick up. Just need a marker to spell shell right.

A - Pours a golden body with tons of bubbles all over in the glass. One inch bright white head sits on top, thick and foamy.

S - Not huge aroma here. Bready, biscuity malt comes out biggest, with a slight grassy hop compliment.

T - Bready and biscuity. Very slightly toasted malts. Hops are weak, but what is here is grassy and a touch earthy.

M - Medium bodied. Not watery like many pilseners are.

Overall - Not a bad beer at all, just nothing all that exciting. Good representation of the style.
