Schell’s Pilsner

12 oz single – thanks to Kevin for the chance to try this one.
Pour is a very odd color. It has a watery pale look, but also has a slightly bizarre hazed, wheat-like look. The head is not really of any consequence and there is a thin film of froth on the surface. No lace. The color is very disturbing to me – it looks both washed out and cloudy. Strange.
Nose has some dry, grainy alcohol and a little degree of sweet malt.
There is a hint of bitterness that permeates the beer (good), but it also delivers a paradoxical grain based, vegetal, corn sweetness. The alcohol (solvent) comes through in a bit, more in terms of taste than burn.
I don’t like this much, and the appearance is particularly bothersome. The tastes are not THAT bad, but at the same time Germans everywhere are afraid – very afraid.
