Schell Shocked

The August Schell Brewing Company is in New Ulm, Minnesota and have been brewing since 1860. This beer is a radler, a German term for a pale lager mixed with lemon or grapefruit juice. In this case, it is grapefruit.  The can is like a World War 2 era airplane, and the hits to the plane are grapefruits.

The beer pours a pale yellow in color. There is a tall, thin and fizzy white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is toasted malt and grapefruit juice. The taste follows the aromas directly. There is a bit of grapefruit bitterness on the end. It drinks crisp and refreshing. This is what it says it is, straight ahead, grapefruit and lager, successfully done.
