(12oz bottle dated 5-28-11 thanks to swalden28) clear copper with thick lasting cola-like head. Nose of brown sugar, fresh cracked grain and melon. Taste of old grain, bit caramel, watery, cracker and cream. Foxbush (2113) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2011
This is my third beer from this brewery. Trader Joe sell some of thier beers. We are in Wonewok resort for 3M. This is the beer that they have on tap. The color is a clear amber and pours with a frothy head. The beer is sweeter than I like. Some caramel and very little hops. Neutral finish. bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 4, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from tap into Pint glass.
Appearance: Burnished amber with just a light head and not much lacing.
Aroma: Light caramel malts - not much else.
Taste: Just barely sweet caramel grainy malts are the highlight, with a very, very light hop finish. Not much complexity, but appreciate the lower sweetness.
Palate: Moderate carbonation, surprisingly ample smooth body for a low abv lager.
Overall: Maybe not much going on, but it is well constructed and easy to kick back. Better than the standard Grain Belt. DasBierChef (1084) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Meh, nothing fancy here. Like a lot of Schell’s beers pretty bland. Oh well. heliport (12) - Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Served in a clear bottle as a warning to those who should know better, this beer is clearly aimed at a demographic that is going for quantity. It looked bland, tasted blander, and all around was not worth the money or effort to drink it.

Lightly malty in flavor with elements of grain in the flavor, this was a straight-forward, easy to drink amber, not bad as a session beer. BVery (11364) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap, bottle. Light orange pour with minimal head. Aroma is mild malt and grain. Taste is also mild malt, cereal, maybe a little caramel, and some nuttiness. It’s, you know, okay. Sorry, WymanJ - please don’t hate me :) WymanJ (49) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 31, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2011 This has become one of my favorite "go-to" tap beers. It has a slightly sweet flavor, and is quite smooth. A local beer that has a lot of history behind it, so I am glad it I like it so well. It’s a good beer, despite elitists like BVery turning up their noses at it. :P fidelis83 (2509) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Pours a clear darkish copper with a thin eggshell head. Aroma is cereal grain, light grassy and spicy hops, toast and a hint of corn sweetness, some caramel notes come out as it warms a bit. Flavor is cereal, a little toast, more corny sweetness, hay, some spicy hops and a touch of corn sileage. Palate is thin and has a neutral, watery feel throughout with a fairly heavy carbonation. Better than I expected, honestly. Onslow (1532) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Light amber brew iwth thin but persistent white head. Light aroma of sweet grains and grassy hops. Light taste of sweet roasted malts with a modestly dry finish noted with light grassy hops. Not bad.
