COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lakemaid Beer is a limited release brew from August Schell Brewing Company and Rapala. Brewed in Schellís 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.

Bottle from allendodd. Thankís for this one! Pours gold with a three finger foamy head. Rather bready aroma. Almost a honey note. Near medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is pleasant, mildly bready, and a detectable amount of grassy hop. Finishes nice and clean. The hop increases with time. Put me on a lake with this, and Iíd be happy. One of the better pale lagers Iíve had.

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... Iíd probably just throw this maid back.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 Just a stupidly branded adjunct lager. Teh taste is of corn and mineral water.

Bottle. Finally found this sonofabitch as a single to purchase instead of a 12-pack, and I had to be in Nebraska to make that happen. Go figure. Pale watery gold pour with a small and quickly dissipating head. Little bit of corn on the aroma. Grainy, fairly sweet, and even a bit oily to the texture.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Purchased at Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a clear golden straw brew with a thin white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of sweet light corn grits, crystal golden grain malt, some citrus zest and a touch of red beets. Taste is light bodied, slightly sweet with flavors of corn grits, flowery hop character with a touch of pear. Finish is semi-sweet, a slight pear and bread after taste that quickly disappears to a clean finish. Actually itís not that bad for a semi-sweet light beer. I could easily share a few bottles while fishing and tell a few stories about how the "big one" got a away.

Bright medium gold colored body with a bright white head. The aroma was light bread crust with some hay and a little bit of sweet potato. The taste has some strong notes of raw bread dough, especially in the finish. There is also a little bit of raw potato. A hint of black pepper spice tells me that there is a hint of hops in this doughy mess. A let down for Schell, but certainly drinkable.

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.

Yellow color. Very light lager aroma with hair salon. Some salt in the flavor, in addition to corn. Drink this one ice cold. Not one of Schellís better products. I agree with Ben, this is good shtick and campy. It does remind me of Premium, but not as drinkable or as good as that beer. Thanks to Skyview for sharing.

You gotta love the shtick coming out of Schell... Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Yellow color with no head. Light grain aroma and some marshmallow. Sweet, clean grain flavor. Much like Grain Belt Premium. Simple and good.

Slight crisp hoppiness to it, other than that the same old pale lager thatís been made numerous times.
