big brown bottle

No question, I liked this one a lot.  This is the most surprising Schell’s beer I’ve had.  Others have been safely tasty, but not particularly memorable.  This was full bodied and drinkable.  It had great flavor that didn’t leave a sour lingering taste like I’d expect some stouts to.  I found this in a 22oz bottle and thought it might be a challenge to finish – not the case.  I even initially thought the label was kind of drab but now I’m kind of smitten with it. Ohh, cute.   

The nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever so you can rest medicine

This weekend I’ve been testing the theory that you can beat a cold by drinking alcohol. Despite a valiant effort, I’m still sick, and the worst of it is that I didn’t enjoy a single beer I drank. That is until the sweet nectar of Lake Superior Special Ale made contact with my tongue just minutes ago. Despite my taste buds being all out of whack, I’m enjoying this beer very much. Kinda reminds me of a Summit Pale Ale but a little sweeter. As Ange mentioned, and I’m sure Chuck will be pointing out, the only bummer is the labels. They’re lacking the personality that the beer has.
