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.

LearninBeer (396) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Received this beer a couple years ago. Light caramel malt aroma. Pours a golden brown red, off white head, mostly diminishing, good lacing. The taste is non-descript, so umami. The body id light, the texture thin and slick, the carbonation soft and the finish short and a slight bitterness. OK, shouldn’t have let it age at 4.9% but didn’t really have any choice. Maybe the next time my buddy goes to Wisconsin I can drink this sooner. Not a fair rating.

12 oz bottle. A. From Iowa. Thanks go to John M.
Clear amber colour with a small off-white head. Malt, nuts and... nuts and... nuts in the aroma. Dryish. The flavour is malt, sweetness and a touch of hops. Boring.
