2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
O.k., so the aroma is weak and the palate is quickly flat, and that it retains no head (on a nice color), and the flavor has a bit of malty substance to it but that it dissipates into a bland American beer...that doesn't make it a bad beer, does it?

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Disappointed in this one. Not much flavor.
Head evaporated almost instantly, little to no lacing at all. Pass this one up

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours out to an amber, not necessarily dark color in the glass. As with the other Schell offerings, this one has a very slight head. Little to no aroma other than fairly light malt. Taste is predominantly that of malt with a slight sweetness. Comparible to Michelob Amber bock crossed with a Killian’s Red. Average at best.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent dark lager with a good bit of roastiness along with decent malt flavor. Hints of corn sweetness in the finish. Hops barely detectable.

Perhaps the weakest Schell beer on the market. Not really worth the extra $$$.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Totally unremarkable beer, and not worth the money when compared to any of Schell’s more upmarket brews. Dark in color, bland in taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The dark is misleading. Whilst not a bad beer, it lacks intensity. There’s a light sweetness to it, but the flavour is unremarkable. I drink it because it’s a good compromise between price and flavor. $2.25 for a 22oz draught here in town.
