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.

After pouring the beer the yeasty aroma told me I was in for a treat. The beer had the malt flavor I enjoy and reminded me of a euro Oktoberfest. By far the best thing I’ve ever experienced to come out of Iowa.

This brew pours from the bottle a clear ruddy copper. The average creamy off-white head is mostly diminishing with decent lacing. The aroma is mostly molassess malt and earthy yeast, some hints of perfumed hops are also present. Flavor starts and finishes fruity and sweet. The light to medium creamy body is soft with a slight chalky/dry feel to the finish. Nice.

A relatively pleasant amber lager. Decently balanced, I taste unique hop and malt characteristics.

An excellent brew! It is just so enjoyable to drink, a milestone in casual beers. Very smooth, and a wonderful mix of malt and hops, but nothing to bold or extreme
