Schell is one of those sentimental favorites, like Yuengling and Leinenkugel. Operated by the original family, but not exactly producing the best beer. The Octoberfest has a decent malty flavor, but the alcohol is not all that present, and it's not really the solid Autumn beer you want in a Festbier. So-So would be a good way to describe it. It wasn't bad. But it wasn't what you really want from a Fest. It's certainly not as good as what Capital cranks out.
