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.

Sent to be several months ago in the micro-brew of the month club. One of the better marzens that I have had. Like typical marzens, clear and no head. Tasted very good though.

Loved this brew. Could taste cherries in it. Deeeeeep red color, nice subtle flavors but smooth. Excellent for fall or winter.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Pours to a nice autumn-like red-brown-ornage, with a medium off-white had that left okay lacing. Nose was the expected malty nuts, earth and dark fruits, with a hint of toffee, and the mouthfeel full and slightly sweet. Taste was more of the malty fall taste, and the finish wet, but offset by just enough hops to be pleasant.

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Brennan’s Country Farm Market in Brookfield, WI. Pours a semi-clear copper amber brew with a thin, creamy fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of light roasted caramel malt, some fruity character, sweet citrus hops and a touch of roasted nuts. Taste is medium bodied, caramel malt, some salt water taffy, and a light fruity character. Finish is semi-sweet fruity, with little hop bitterness.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5591) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2008 This beer came in my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a ruby-chestnut color with a very small tan head that faded quickly. The aroma was sweet, tang and malty. The flavor was tangy, bitter, nutty and malty with a lightly fruity undertone. There was a bit of roastiness that came out on the finish.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Bottle. Poured a clear caramel color with a thin white head. Almost not lacing whatsoever. Mouthfeel is nice. Aroma is decent, with sweet and fruity scents. Flavor is typical of most oktoberfest/marzens, as it has a nice caramel malt flavor to it. Aftertaste almost has a apple hint to it. A nice oktoberfest brew.

Pretty good Octoberfest. Nice and yeasty aroma and a malty sweet flavor. A bit of hoppy dryness at the end.

Copper body beneath a fleeting white head. Caramel, taffy apple, a hint of hops. Lively carbonation, crisp and clean. Flavor is sweet but not cloying.
