One of the better U.S.-made Oktoberfests. Balanced for the style, smooth throughout. Well done.

Poured a mid red-gold with a moderate head and lacing. Aroma was of sweet, fruity malts. Taste was slightly nutty maltiness with a moderate hop finish. Palate was fairly nice. Overall, a fine Octoberfest from Schell.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Pours a lighter copper with slowly diminishing beige head with some moderate lacing. Aroma is mild which is typical of the style. Some light caramel, and fruitiness present. Flavor is full and rich - toasted bread, rich candy-like caramel and leaves no aftertaste (smooth from start to finish). Overall, this is one of the best US versions of this style of bier that I’ve had.

One of the better Octoberfest beers I've had. Sweet malty and a touch of bubblegum. Nice fall spices. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours copper with slowly diminishing beige head. Nose is mild - as is typical of the style. Some light caramel, mild fruitiness. Flavor is full and rich - toasted bread, rich candy-like caramel (but not too sweet), some salt and mineral flavors suggesting well-controlled water PH and good lagering, and ending in a thirst quencing mildly herbal bittersweet hoppiness. Great for a US marzen.

Pours a nice copper color with off-white head. Caramel and roasted malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with malts. Nice.

Nothing really eccentric here, but its a solid offering from a mid-range brewery. Malty sweetness is highlighted. Caramel and bread.
