UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 From memory, this beer is very reminiscent of Killian’s, basic caramel flavor, no surprise, but with a sweetness that is a little thin and annoying, not a bad lager, but not one I’ll have again if they start carrying it in my area again. bpreo (2840) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2010 From the sample pack. Had a really nice flavor, but too much of it seemed to be the problem. drowland (8710) - Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Have had this on tap and from the bottle. Not a bad entry from an otherwise mediocre brewery. CanIHave4Beers (4184) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Pours a nice deep brown with a good light tan head and good lace. Te aroam is nutty and malty sweet. The flavory has nice roasty and nutty notes with of course, plenty of caramel. Certinally not overly sweet. The texture is nicely creamy. drfabulous (7944) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 15, 2009
Forgotten for some time in the fridge. Removed today to make a bread. Caramel. Soda. Bit of Pepsi in there. Still carbonated. Ok. At best, ok.

Courtesy of Juart. Pours a clear deep copper color. A thick beige head that sticks around for a few minutes and leaves a little bit of lacing. The aroma has a lot of caramel, with a sort of sour acidic quality to it. The flavor is pretty plain. A smooth malty flavor that leaves a sort of dry medicinal taste on my tongue. Medium body that works nicely with the tight carbonation. I agree that this is very drinkable, but it is pretty plain. pj1855 (160) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Redish brown in color. Small off white head. Spotty lacing. Picking up lots of caramel in the aroma. Body is pretty thin, almost watery. Very sweet tasting beer. Gets to be a bit much toward s the end. Drinkable beer but may not be something I’ll seek out again. hero12 (184) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Light, sweet caramel smell with a taste quite the same. Not an overpowering flavor, and it finishes smooth and not too bitter. SODAK14 (377) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Pretty good beer. Despite it’s dark color it tastes more like a wheat beer to me. The initial taste is dark but after taste does not leave the bitter. Smooth dark beer but not one I would seek out. EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Like so many Schell beers, drinkability wins out over complexity. And so bock becomes a thirst quencher. Enjoyable, dark sugar and malt aroma and flavor, a bit thin, but a beer I would always be happy to receive.
