Bottle. Poured clear amber with an average white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Light to moderate grainy sweetaroma. Light to medium body with a thin texture and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light to sweet finish of short to moderate duration.

Ratman197 (9550) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle poured a clear yellow with a small lasting white head. Aromas of bread, corn and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of bread and light straw with a smooth finish.

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

BVery (5985) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2011
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.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2007
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.

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.

badgerben (4387) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2004
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.

JK (4377) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2012
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.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
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.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2012 Relatively samey pale lager, not different than the thousands out there that have not one thing unique about them, although this wasn’t nasty in any way.
