Hmm...I guess I can't say it's bad but it is very disappointing nonetheless. A boring lager that tastes remarkably bland. I think the color is for show only.

Not much aroma,just the standard American lager smell, like the floor at a concert. No head, very thin, lively carbonation. Tastes pretty much like their original. Color is there to impress visually, I guess. Not a bad cheap beer, but nothing special to seek out.

JPDIPSO (5153) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2003
Brown with a hint of orange in color. Small bone colored head. Light dry caramel aroma. Sweet dark candi flavor with a herbal hops finish. Lacks balance. Somewhat salty and metallic.

GrainBeltGuzzler (249) - Goodhue, Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 not so super, kind of disappointed, little actual taste with a metalic thing going on afterwards, Re-rate head to head with berghoff Genuine dark. Malty alcohol aroma, no head to speak of, with a dark brown pour. malty grainy sort of flavor, not great, but everyone is entitled to a few mistakes now and then

Nuffield (3941) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2003
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?

Disappointed in this one. Not much flavor. Head evaporated almost instantly, little to no lacing at all. Pass this one up

proc (342) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - DEC 7, 2002
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.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - OCT 14, 2002
Decent dark lager with a good bit of roastiness along with decent malt flavor. Hints of corn sweetness in the finish. Hops barely detectable.

A largely weak and disappointing Dark beer. uncharacteristicly lacking in flavor and aroma. Sad.
