Schell's Keller Pils

This is a German keller style pils from the August Schell Brewery of New Ulm, Minnesota.  Keller is German for "cellar" and it is generally an unfiltered, unpasteurized, more malty lager. It is the limited release selection in their Prost fall sampler pack. Schell's brews a wide variety of beers, both under the Schell's label and as contract brewers.  In addition, they now own and brew the Grain Belt line of beers.  They are the second oldest family owned brewery in the United States (over 150 years and counting).  I think that Yuengeling is probably the oldest family owned brewery.

The beer pours a lightly hazed golden yellow. There is a tall, thick, bubbly head of white foam. The aroma is French bread, bread dough, sourdough bread, grassy, with a light, crisp, citrus fruitiness. The taste follows the aromas, crisp, dry, bitter, bread and citrus. The beer drinks very refreshing, with a carbonated zing. This is wildly drinkable.
