COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This all malt, Vienna-style lager is a real crowd pleaser! Roasted malts and imported hops give it a deliciously smooth malt taste backed by a light hop finish. Perfect for any occasion.

Baumgartner (122) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Bottle poured to a pint glass. Poured very orangish color in bright lighting. Very mild grapefruity hop aroma. Overall not to bad.

felsenpils (122) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
Lackluster amber beer. Not nearly as good as Mexican amber lagers and nowhere near the quality of Austrian/German Märzen beers. Another example of Shell´s inability to produce anything decent.

mothman (120) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Poured into Sam Adams Sensory Glass. Color is a golden bronze. The beer looks dark, but you can see right through it. Pours a light tan head that leaves great lacing. Smell is very malty. Roasted malts with hints of carmel. Taste is of roasted nuts and the same hint of carmel. The taste is mainly malty, but there are some slight earthy hops present. Mouthfeel is very rich and creamy. The beer goes down with a slight bitter aftertaste. Overall this beer is easy to drink and could be a wonderful session beer. It is a great beer, however the taste becomes more and more of a typical lager after a while, and I am more of a fan of ales. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-02-2009 21:00:41

linkolnlogg (94) - your home, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Bottle. Pours out a clear amber colour with a mild-light white head. Scent is lightly sugary with an unusual musty smell. Taste is distinctively malty nested on a light hop backdrop with a mildly sweet finish.

Indy (87) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Malty aroma and flavor, slightly fruity without much a a trace of bitterness. I could say it’s easy drinking, but there are many others better than this that are also easy drinking hot-weather beverages. Then again, I’m not really a fan of lagers in general, so my review should be taken with a grain of salt. Actually, the best thing about this beer is it’s appearance...deep orange that gives way to sunny yellow at the edges...and not quite completely clear giving it the illusion of density.

aetheon (85) - The Gutter, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2009 nice dark amber color, medium full bodied, smooth malt forward. I love the balance of this beer, heavy on toasted malts with enough hops to bring it all together. my favorite Schell beer.

Pours dark amber, with a orangeish tinge. Malty flavor very light and very carbonated and medium head. Has an apple caramel flavor.
