Pour is a fairly dark caramel, minimal off white head, sparse lacing. Aroma is caramel and bready malt, light pine and citrus hops. Biscuit malt. Taste is a fair bit of caramel and brown sugar malt, toast, pine hop finish. A bit of spice, perhaps from the rye, is present in the taste but absent in the aroma. Slightly sweeter than I would have preferred.

12oz bottle. Amber-orange body, filtered. Creamy, steady off-white head. Sweetish malt aroma, not bad. Medium bodied, pretty easy going macro Rye beer. A pretty enjoyable hoppy Lager, something you dont get too much, and even if Schell doesnt really nail it with quality ingredients, they can brew well enough to execute something like this. Smooth caramel, rye malts malt, steady respectable hop bitterness, well balanced.

Bottle. Pours pretty light. Nice bready aroma and flavor. Pretty nondescript but pretty solid.

On tap at Winterfest 2013. Brown pour with limited head. Malty and spicy from the rye, a solid brew from Schell.

Bottle pour at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. This feels like a "walkin through the woods in the fall" type of beer.

Beernoka (6) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2012 does not count
Appearance - Crystal clean beer, reddish as expected and very refreshing looking. On draft and served with a one finger head that dropped quickly with little lacing. Aroma - slight noble hop aroma from the use of the German hop variety, accompanied by a toasty malt aroma that comes up from the rye. Taste - very clean yet bold first impression. Elegant flavor with a unique rye oiliness that does not overpower the beer. Very layered flavor, with that dry, lager finish that you expect from Schells. Overall - a very pleasant and enjoyable beer. A lot of simple (meant in a good way) flavored come at you but with the crispness of a lager. Well worth trying. Cant wait to have some with steak.

CanIHave4Beers (4183) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Pours a deep orangish-reddish color with a big huge tight head.

The aroma is fruity & lightly sweet. Plenty of floral hop notes, with some mild dankness.

The flavor is kindred to the aroma, but a bit more defined/exciting. Plenty of fruity character all around, the beer is mildly bitter with a stronger bitterness towards the finish, and one that lingers. The flavor is not overly sweet, but certainly mildly so. Some light snappy/spicy notes are abound but this is more hop focused than anything.

Very different, but enjoyable.

Spicy and good! Better than I expected...standard Schell yeast, but the rye matched it well.
