Schell’s Bock

12 oz single, thanks go out to Kevin for the chance to try this one.
Pour is a slightly reddish brown, with some good clarity, a smallish head that is not retained all that well and does not really give much lace.
The nose and tastes combine to yield a very nice malty, alcohol flavor that is compact and fairly short without fuss. The beer is pretty light with a straightforward approach that delivers a bready finish and some simplicity and depth that is uncommon. Robust, perhaps a little nutty and definitely yeasty, the alcohol pops in for a brief appearance in the final flourish too.
Nice beer in the style which pleases me but may be a little too simple for some.
