Developed at the end of Prohibition, Original is our flagship brand and still Schell's most popular beer. Made from 70 percent barley malt and 30 percent corn, it is the quintessential American lager.

I agree with some others that this beer is under-rated. It's not a bad beer at all. Good Thrirst Quencher, and definitely better than the standard B-M-C Macro Swill.

Another one that i feel doesn't deserve the bad press it has especially from the people in wisconsin the home of bad beer.granted it's not some high prized brew like some others but it definately deserves to be placed higher then what it is.it had a nice golden color,malty in aroma ,nice malt and hopp flavor with some hoppiness in the after taste.A very smooth brew for a hot summer day that is more then just drinkable but very enjoyable and satisfying.

Jesse Venturas last act as Governor should have been to order the Minnesota Air-National Guard to bomb the factory where this shit is made. Could someone please tell me why almost all the beer made in Minnesota is absolute piss water? What's going on up there? Blech!!!!!!!�

Not as terrible as the deer brand, not as good as the pils. I am not sure why this beer exists. It will satisfy neither the swill drinker or the beer snob.

Not bad for a microbrew from New Ulm. Very drinkable and not too filling. Not too disapointing by any means.
