12 oz. bottle. Pours clear golden amber with a tight thin foamy film. Aroma has solid malt with subtle sugars and hidden hops and some mild honey fruit scents. Taste is smooth and sweet with just the perfect amount of bitterness and again subtle honey fruit in the finish. Palate is medium smooth somewhat creamy and finishes dry. I really like this!

Pours a fairly clear hazy orange color with some moderate carbonation. Aroma has some sweet caramel, yeast, barley and malty notes along with some very mild floral hops. Flavor is surprisingly hoppy at first before settling in to a sweet yeast and caramel finish; Aftertaste is barley-like Palate is light and the carbonation is moderate; feels surprisingly crisp to drink. Easy to drink overall, but not my goto Maibock

Its hard to get around the metallic aroma this has for some reason. If you make it that far the taste is actually not bad, big malty beginning and decent underlying hops.

Over the years I have come to expect very little from Schell’’s and this certainly lived up to expectations! Maifest=Festival in May? No festival I will go to again, forever. No sir, stick with the year-round festival that can be found in a case of Blatz! Pop a top of that junk and you are transported away to a festival of the imagination: your IQ will double or triple, that messy body fat will melt away, your muscletone will triple, and any number of floozies will be hovering around screaming out, "Gib mir etwas von diesem großen Wurst!"

Light nose. Slight hops flavor. Citrus and wheat palate with small bitter finish. Nothing special

Not bad nice our nice lacing on the glass tthe smell and taste is floral hops sweet. Had this a couple months back and finishing my last bottle tonite. You can feel the alcohol in this one. Light in color but fairrly complex vaguely reminds me of the hoppy Augusburger from Huber in the 80s which was a big fav. Not quite up to that but still a pretty decent brew from Schells. Good midwestern German beer. Prost.

deep golden with medium head. i’m relatively unfamiliar with the style, but the mix of sweet maltiness, bitter hops, and alcohol just creates an unpleasant mess of flavors in my mouth. from the other reviews, it’s clear that i’m in the minority in thinking this is pretty subpar.
