Very tasty Marzen. Caramel/malt flavor that makes this a very drinkable beer. 2nd Iowa beer and I like this one better than the first. I will definitely be looking for more beers from the Millstream line.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It was baking hot in the square when we came out after lunch with our bags and the rod-case to go to Burguete. People were on top of the bus, and others were climbing up a ladder. Bill went up and Robert sat beside Bill to save a place for me, and I went back in the hotel to get a couple of bottles of wine with us. When I came out the bus was crowded. Men and women were sitting on all the baggage and boxes on top, and the women all had their fans going in the sun. It certainly was hot. Robert climbed down and I fitted into the place he had saved on the one wooden seat that ran across the top.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep auburn color. Subtle nose which hints of butterscotch, caramel and currant, along with a touch of medicinal hops. Taste is not cloying, which I often find in this style, but not very substancial either. Light malt flavor. Boring, somewhat bland.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled in December 04 (slightly before I picked it up at the brewery in Amana). This one was pretty darn good on tap at the brewery. Appearance: Reddish/amber color. Frothy, creamy, thick white head. Lots of carbonation. Excellent lacing. Aroma: very herbal, buttery. Flavor: Buttery, nutty, grainy. Well blended. Palate: Thin. A bit watery. Lingering sweetness.

Boy do I love this beer. Because I support locals? Maybe...but still, this has a fine malty aroma, satisfyingly deep amber-bronze color and nice carbonation--too many ambers taste flat to me. This also has an engaging sweet maltiness nicely balanced by subtle hops and just a hint of creamy buttery mellow...ok, I’m getting a little too exuberant about this. I’ll summarize: a very satisfying everyday beer.

This is one of the great everyday beers for me! Its a beautiful amber lager with a malty aroma...hint of caramel. Initial flavor is sweet with a fresh spicey hop finish. It is a bit thin, but seemed a bit creamier on tap at the millstream. Great beer.

Darker amber color with a head that subsided rapidly. Caramel aroma. Mellow sweet malt flavors, lightly buttery, ending with just a tingle of bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown body with a thinning white head. Herbal, caramelly aroma. The velvety mouthfeel and malty flavor go well together. Roasted nuts with butter and wet herbs in the flavor. Perhaps a bit too much carbonation. Heemah!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright amber color, slight haze, with a thick dollup of creamy foam above.
Nose? Lager-y....very clean, small fruity tones, caramel, nice and malty.
Taste...sweet and tangy, nutty, fruity, zingy,...big malt, but maybe over-carbonated. Light in the body, but filled with flavor. Easy drinker, good taster, hard to find a fault here. Although it falls somewhere in the middle, at the very least...something I’d have no problem downing were I down Iowa way.
