The caramel bock was slightly better than the pale ale, because I think Schell makes a slightly better lager than an ale. I like bocks with a nice malty taste with a noticeable touch of alcohol. A caramel bock should be even sweeter, but really there was nothing more than a copper-colored lager. I don't think this is a great winter choice for here in Atlanta, I can't even imagine how poor a choice it would be for someplace that actually gets a long winter, like Minnesota.
