I have to agree with Rett here. Putting the Schell up against the Summit and Surly varieties is a guaranteed bronze for the New Ulm nectar. Not that its a bad beer, which it is not. It is just that it lacks the personality and “flava” of it’s Oktoberfest counterparts. On par with most Schell offerings, which always just seem to lack a little punch. Schell:the C-student Minnesota beer. Don’t get down, though, you can still be President.
I used to be a typical Bud/Busch/Michelob guy. Whatever's cold, right?! (I grew up in a town of 690) However, around my final year of college, I developed tastebuds and soon began to whistle a different tune. My fridge now usually contains about 5-7 different beers at any given time, and I'll be dipped in dog doo if you can find a domestic light beer in there. My tastes are more inclined to the dark side, with Stouts and Black Lagers being my favorites, generally speaking, though I have developed a love for IPAs as well. View all posts by Joe Lunchpail
