COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name Schild Brau means essentially 'Shield beer' in German. This is our Flagship brew, a Microbrew done in the style of the special beers of Munich. This beer is brewed in the style of a Vienna style lager. This style was first developed by Anton Dreher in Vienna in 1841. He used a new type of sweet caramelized malt that gave the beer a wonderful reddish, coppery color and a juicy malt character. Word soon spread to Germany where this style of beer became immensely popular, and stronger versions called Marzen or Oktoberfest were soon made. Our beer uses these same malts to attain a perfect balance between malty sweetness and a firm bitterness. Our Hallertau hops are imported from Germany give it subtle spicy flavor. The repeated awards that we have received for this beer only confirm why many people consider this beer to be synonymous with Millstream Brewing at its best.

Sampled at the DC/MD/VA/WV/PA Ratebeer Gathering 11/20/04. Clear copper. Aroma is very lightly malty. Taste has notes of caramel, apple and some wheat. Extremely thin and watery. Overall, eh.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2004 2004 bottle compliments of MilkmanDan. Deep red color, clear and filtered, no head. Toffee aroma, coppery and yeasty. Starts out very sour and yeasty, light caramel. Medium and made with a good amount of water but yet not ridiculously thin. Some light sweetness on the end. Surprisingly pretty good and reminiscent of an alt with all of the yeast copper and sweetness in the middle. It works as a marzen though it’s a sweet version of one, with not as much graininess. Didnt find much in the way of spicy hops.

Copper Coloring. No Head. I Don’t Know if This Should be Savored. It Seamed a Bit Dusty/Stale Flavor Overall. Some Malts and Spices.. Nothing Real Fantastic.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2010 Original Rating, 10/4/2004: Clear brown or red color with no head. A little spice on the nose. Very dry and dusty malt taste. Eh, not much to write home about. 6/3/5/3/12

Re-Rating, 9/6/2010: Dark copper color with a thin head. Light amber and biscuity aroma. Light biscuit taste, fairly rich malt (Munich?) flavor. A bit of spice. Not sure what the heck I was drinking the first time around.

My notes are spotty on this one, lets see it was dark brown with decent head on it. tasted good after a long day of looking at tractors.
