Not too much to say. Itís a pale yellow macro style lager. Decently malty. You can taste the corn. no hop profile to speak of. A pleasant easy drink, but uninspired.

Schellís Deer Brand has a thin, white head, almost no lacing, and a clear, straw appearance, with some lazy, ascending bubbles. The aroma is of sweet, somewhat sharp, grain aroma, and the flavor is of grain, some sweet bread, very mild hop bitterness to round out the end of the sip. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Schellís Deer Brand finishes crisp and easy going. RJT

Atom (1821) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2015
12oz bottle pours a clear yellow/golden with a large white head. Barley, corn, and dry bitter hop aroma, taste is similar. A simple no thrills drinkable lager.

fidelis83 (2208) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Crystal clear pale gold pour with a thin, soapy white head. Aroma is toast, dry corn, toasted oily corn germ, lots of grass, and some breadiness. Flavor is toasty corn, yeasty bread, a little apple, saltine cracker, soft water and toasted bread. Light dry entry, medium, spritzy carbonation and dry crisp finish. Pretty good for a pale lager, fairly clean and crisp despite a noticeable corny presence, pretty damn boring though.

Pour out of 12 oz can, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of bread, dough, cereal, some grain, corn. Taste was a mix of grain, bread, corn, slight yeast, finishing slightly sweet, slightly dry.

In all the years Iíve never tried the original deer brand until this sample pack. About as clear as it gets. When I rate a beer like this itís about is easy drinking and clean without foul or rank flavors or after tastes. This one does the job well. I prefer it over Premium.

deyholla (8348) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a sweet light grain note with a bit of grass and a hint of corn underlying. Flavor combines light grains and grass with a bit of hay as well as a hint of corn.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains, some malts, and a little corn on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty clean.

BeerKurve (518) - - APR 7, 2014
Pale clear yellow with a thin filmy head that fades fast. Aroma of pale malts, corn, yeasts and barley. Flavor is the same but with a sweeter taste and greater emphasis on flaked corn. Light body with moderate carbonation. Tastes better than it smells.

jcnielsen (2691) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Can. Pours a light yellow color with white head. Light, malty, corn, pils aromas. Bread, corn, pils flavors. Pretty light beer, but pretty smooth. I think if I was living in Minnesota while in college, I would have pounded a lot of these. Easy drinking, not great, but better than other similar macro pale lagers.

This is an okay lager, definitely better than most. Its not quite as corn flavored, has a nice malt base.
