COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve found the key to what makes Fall so special, and its called Octoberfest. This rich, smooth lager uses a perfect balance of caramel, pale, cara-pils and black malts to create the best Octoberfest beer of the season. Available September through October.

This brew had a rich amber color with a moderate head but not much lacing. Malty and slightly fudge aroma-spicy hoppiness. Very smooth and medium bodied, slightly acidic with some chocolate in the finish.

A nice Marzen, but not a spectacular one. Lacks any real malt emphasis or defining flavor, and the nose is lacks any real "presence" in the beer.

Cloudy amber,lasting off white head. Small intense bead. Light fruit malt nose.Exceptionally light malt profile. Underflavored

A hoppy Americanized Okto that’s light on the sweet malt that I usually enjoy. This style fails repeatedly to impress me. I’m disappointed how overtly bitter this is.

Little hoppy, which I liked. A little citrus in the middle, which took me off guard. A new favorite of mine from the Shell brewing.

Great beer, I never would’ve believed it had a vanilla aroma untill I smelt it for myself. Very heavy in the malt maybe a bit harsh but not too bad. pour me another bootful

I am really starting to enjoy oktoberfest beers. They are very flavorful and robust and this one is a perfect example.

Nice smooth beer. Tastes of lemon which is really odd for an Oktoberfest. Not to style, but a good beer anyway.

For those of you who haven’t had the privilege of actually going to Schell’s Brewery in lovely New Ulm, MN, you are missing out on one cool brewery. There is a large garden that has peacocks struting around and multiple layers to the garden. Oh, and this brewery does make some dam good beers too.
