COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We make this beer several months before the harvest so it can age properly. Millstream Oktoberfest is similar to the our Munich style Schild Brau, but is stronger, maltier, and darker in color. A truly special beer, to celebrate the harvest, an important part of life here in Amana.

I think this is one of the best beers Millstream Brewery makes! The rich malty flavor adds to the hint of caramelly roasted notes.

Headbanger (3386) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2014
12oz bottle 9/28/13 (Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids)-Pours a darker amber with a tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and toffee. Taste of the same. This medium to full bodied brew was again rather tasty. Nice job.

12oz bottle pours clear dark amber with very thin head. Nose is vegetal, smoky, maple, malt. Taste is malt, dark bread, syrup, green beans, smoky. Finish is weird fruit and vegetal malt. Medicinal fruit notes as it warms. Not very good.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of pepsican. Thanks! Pours a hazy dark orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Somewhat metallic, caramel, light spice/nutmeg, toasted malty, vanilla aroma. A bit tangy/metallic, chewy toasted malty, rich cracker, herbal, slightly bitter hoppy flavor. Millstream has better German offerings.

beernbourbon (1326) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Tap at CID airport pub. Pour is a clear amber with a small but lasting white head. Aroma is faintly chemically up font with hints of roasted malt, faint nutty spice, and a light berry note. Flavor is true to nose with a pleasant, rich palate. Something is just a little off though and I think it may have to do with line cleanliness. An odd, faintly tart and fruity note lingers for a while.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 9, 2013
Bottled sample. Bright orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of whole wheat bread dough, bit of caramel, and wet stones. Quite bready in the mouth and not overly sweet, so no caramel bomb here. Medium bodied with a hint of earthy hop on the finish. A by-the-book Oktoberfest, but well executed.

PintPiner (22) - Maple Grove, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Poured from a bottle. Rich malty aroma. Thin head with light lacing. An autumn like orange-bronze color. Mild carbonation with nice body & mouthfeel. A sweet malty flavor w hints of caramel & peat. Overall, a very nice Oktoberfest! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
