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.

rumproasts (5050) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2012
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.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Pours a beautiful gold color with a creamy off white head. Nice visible carbonation. Nose is of hops and malt. Nice and creamy mouthfeel. Taste upfront is malt, a little sweet like a doppelbock, but not as dark or as sweet, with hops providing the finish. A good maibock that pairs well with corned beef and rye bread.

Once again, Schell´s state that they are making German style beer, yet throw together another very average American micro. This one is packed full of caramel malts which make it very cloying and viscous. Drink it for the alcohol content if you must.

12oz bottle-pours gold with a foamy offwhite head. Aroma is light malt/grain-bready. Taste is sweet light malt/grain-bready/caramel, some light fruit-pear, perfumy hops.
