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.

Clear yellow/gold.Half inch head with frothy decending lacing.Well carbed. Aroma is sweet grain,corn maybe, slight noble grassy/floral.Very slight carmel/butter.Pretty good light aroma for a pale lager. Taste is fairly creamy with light carmel/butter notes,medium body,mellow sweet grain,corn and mineral notes. Pretty good alltogether taste. Nice mellow smooth finish slight citrus/raw plantygrassyness sorta pepper like in bittering. Smooth and mellow taste. Pretty good sessionable pale lager.I havent had any average/below average beers from Schell,pretty good beers in my opinion.

Blonde gold body, with a dank beer-sopped bar aroma swiftly smashing the nose. A slight hint of garbage. The body is fairly breezy with some hop bitterness. Thinnish moutfhfeel. A spritz of sulfur on the finish.

12oz bottle to pint glass. Pours nice golden color, with very slight aroma. Skimps even more on the taste, I found it to be very plain and almost "macro-light" tasting. Great labels, and historic brewery, but just a plain beer maybe o.k. for a steaming hot summer day.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear gold with white head. Aroma of malt, light grain and balanced hop. Flavor is much the same. Light body with high carbonation. Overall, not a bad pale lager at all! Enjoyed.

Slight crisp hoppiness to it, other than that the same old pale lager thats been made numerous times.

Poured a semi-dark gold with a light head which faded quickly to lace. Aroma was slightly sweet with malts and corn predominating. Taste of similar - malt and corn - with a slightly sweet hint and a very mild hop finish. Mouth feel was acceptable. Overall, not a bad fishing brew, as it is marketed as. I could potential re-purchase as lawnmower or fishing beer but that would be about it.

Golden color. I expected a little more from this beer. Nothing more than a watered down beer you find at any bar. Great to drink when your on a boat and it is a 100 degrees outside.

Pours pale yellow gold with a 2-3 finger chunky white head that has good retention. Aroma is cereal grain, dry corn, light fusel notes and hints of planty hops. Flavor is lightly toasty cereal grain, light sweet corn, crisp mineral notes, straw and light spicy hops, a little iron to the finish. Palate is light bodied with an ever so slightly slick entry, neutral finish and moderate carbonaiton. The aroma didnt leave me expecting much, but I was nicely suprised. This is a tasty, refreshing pale lager. Definitely one of the best I have had.
