Half liter can. Taste is not great at all, lingering soy sauce like after taste, not great.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap. Clear light gold pour with almost no head. Actually a pretty decent malted grain nose and taste. Really good for the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from The Coffee Ground in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Looks and tastes just like the Schell’s Original but new label design. It pours a light golden pale yellow with a very thin white head. Aroma is fruity, sweet corn, and maybe even some popcorn without the salt and butter. A bit fizzy on the carbonation. Taste is light, crisp, and some fruity tones. Palate is smooth and dry.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I remember this being better than the sample in front of me now, but I do believe this is somewhat dated and will revisit next time in the New Ulm area. Golden color with a tight bubbled, cream colored head. Small lace lines. Light floral and slight paper aroma (I'll chalk that up to the age). Heavy malt sweetness, very reminicant of a eastern europe lager. Light hoppy flavor late. I look forward to a fresh sample.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color with a small head. Pretty malty nose and taste, but not the same maltness of a dopplebock. It has that dusty and rotten quality to it. Kind of plain, but not horrible.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Autumn Brew Review 2012. Deer Brand with Nelson Sauvin. Lager yeast, yellow color, but intensely hopped giving a good floral aroma and bitter flavor. Good palate, better than almost all other beers of this type.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear straw yellow with a quickly fading white topper. Aroma is sweet, grassy and adjuncted with corn. Taste is pretty much the same – sweet malt, mild grassy hops, corn, mild apple and a strong metallic finish. Life is too short to waste more than a couple ounces on this.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
In the can. Thanks to KJ for the beer. Pours bright golden yellow with a poofy, but ethereal head. I’m not sure what badnews is drinking, but no one would call this beer copper in the daylight. The flavor is crisp and light with a watery and slightly metallic tinghe. A subtle rush of lemon at the finish. This is thirst-quenching after a Sunday afternoon of weeding, but not a beer to savor. With that said, it is far less insulting to the palate than most macros and a solid regional party beer. This is seriously overrated on this site at 2.9, but I will say that it seems to have a bit more depth than the onslaught of off brands that Schell also markets. Good luck defining a specific aroma for this one.
