COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lakemaid Beer is a limited release brew from August Schell Brewing Company and Rapala. Brewed in Schell’s old world tradition, this classic American lager is a crisp, clean, refreshing beer, specially brewed to capture the flavor of the fishing country were the legendary Lakemaids swim. With a mild malt flavor like a soft summer breeze and the sparkle of hops that dances like sun on the water, this is the ice cold beer with a taste so good it proves that great fishermen never need to exaggerate.

Straw colored with some quickly fading white foam atop. Aroma of grassy hops, corn, grains and light sweet malt. Taste reminiscent of most American macro lagers… corn, sweet malt and mild case of the hops, this time a touch grassy. Body is a bit grainy and finishes up rather sweet, not bad for the style.

Another random gift from my supervisor... thanks Jim. Very pale golden straw colour. The aroma is lightly corny with a bit of very light flavour. Kind of bland and unappealing. Lightly grassy with a clean finish. Not a whole lot going on in here... I’d probably just throw this maid back.

Pours pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is corn/grainy malt. Yeasty earthy tones, mown hay hops. Flavour is straw-like hop and a slightly astringent grainy body.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 13, 2009
In the botle from HyVee CB. Pours pale yellow with a dense medium sized white head. This is a typically boring beer a la Twins Lager and Grain Belt, but this one has outstanding big boobed women on the label morphed into various hybrid-fish entities. Just like Frank Zappa sez: titties and beer make a good combo.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2008
Straw color with a fairly quickly diminishing white head. Scents of grain, mild malt, corn syrup and a hint of floral hops. Heavier feel, as least by style. Grainy and corn flavors. Just seems heavy to me. Light sweet finish and linger. Perhaps if it had more malt flavor the heaviness would seem justified.

Extra thanks to Wankerweasel. Pours clear with a white head that faces quickly. Aromas of sweet corn, grain and mild hops. Flavor is similar with a nice crisp mildly fruity finish. A really decent lager that I could easily session.

Artwork on bottles is awesome. This is a solid lager. Nothing spectacular but can’t say anything bad about it. Easy drinking, clean tasting, mild hops. Perfect for the summer season.

Decent summer beer, and the variety of "lake maids" on the labels is certainly a plus! Purchased in Cross Lake, MN on a fishing trip. Light and refreshing enough to drink 3 or 4 at one setting.

Bottle. This is one of the best pale lagers I can recall. Nice sweetness to it with a nice hop balance. A little darker than usual. Very clean, very crisp. I could drink this regularly with no problem. Nice, light, refreshing on a hot day. Tasty.
