Lakemaid Beer is a limited release brew from August Schell Brewing Company and Rapala. Brewed in Schells old world tradition, this classic American lager is a crisp, clean, refreshing beer, specially brewed to capture the flavor of the fishing country were the legendary Lakemaids swim. With a mild malt flavor like a soft summer breeze and the sparkle of hops that dances like sun on the water, this is the ice cold beer with a taste so good it proves that great fishermen never need to exaggerate.

Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #79. 12 ounce bottle consumed at my parents house in August, 2008. I have this down as "Schell Rapala". Anyway, it pours a bright clear gold with just a touch of diminishing head...honey-sweet, lightly grassy typical nose for an all-malt lager but not all that exciting...fairly clean but more than a little too sweet, tasting of mango-peach juice, not bad in an IPA perhaps but not really working with the light pale malts here...bit syrupy and problematic on the palate, almost cloying to drink. Yeah Im not likely to look for this for a re-try anytime soon.

Bottle - good size foamy head, medium straw color, sweet corn/malty aroma and flavor, fruity hop notes, not bad for a pale lager, a little too sweet though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Finally found this sonofabitch as a single to purchase instead of a 12-pack, and I had to be in Nebraska to make that happen. Go figure. Pale watery gold pour with a small and quickly dissipating head. Little bit of corn on the aroma. Grainy, fairly sweet, and even a bit oily to the texture.

Not a bad brew, not a great brew, just somewhere in between. You could definitely drink this no problem but it just probably wouldnt be your first choice...

Clear golden pour with a white head. Aroma is cereal grain, light malt. Crisp, clean lager, light malt taste, some cereal grain.

This a pretty decent lager. Its a bit on the sweet side which brings out some fruitiness from the hops and an apple note from the yeast. I could deal w/ it being a little dryer, personally, as I feel like it gets a bit heavy for the style--not that this is a high gravity beast or anything.

Not a bad lager. Mildly sweet with a light body and surprisingly substantive mouthfeel.

Just a really average beer that i find refreshing while basking in the sun in northern Minnesota. Not great, but good. grainy and a little malty and hoppy, thats it. slightly sweet, slightly bitter, pretty well balanced. Miss Walleye and sunfish always treat me well
