Welcome to German beer as interpreted by America immigrants! OK, so itís not a great beer -- but itís the original Schellís beer, and itís a tradition.

This one gets my highest rating. Subtly creamy, malty flavor. Slightly stronger in the alcohol content than your usual American lager. If there is a regional brew that would succeed nationwide if marketed as a microbrew, this is it.

This is one beer that goes down smooth and kicks back with an "I want more" flavour. Too bad we can only get it when we head south!!!

I think this brew is very under rated it comes off with a nice golden color,slightly malty nose with some hoppiness to it.The flavor was light on the malt medium to higher on the hopps with a very clean finish well worth trying if you can and for being a small local brewery for this area they produce some damn good beer with none in there brews listed in the drain pour.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2015 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. For a pale lager itís very good. Edit: had a few more of these for the style about as good as it gets.

The aroma is of malt, somewhat similar to a pilsner, and very strong. I like it. The beer has very little head. The taste is well balanced on all levels. Among USA lagers, this is quite good; not sure how available it is, but if I can get some more, itís strictly better than many other beers of its style.

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.

At the top range for an american standard. Succeeds in its intentions. An unpretentious golden lager with a hallertau hop aroma, clean refreshing maltiness.

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.
