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.

Bottled. Poured cloudy medium orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty and bready malts with wet medium-skinned fruits and related tartness accenting.. OK for the style. The flavor found sweet caramel and fruity notes at the core with tart fruit skins and a hit of oxidation around.. found some prickly carbonation and peppery notes on the finish. Lighter-bodied and sweet overall on the palate.. a tad too sharp toward and through the finish.. not my favorite.

An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has primary notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of wheat bread, alcohol, and bread - reminds me of a bock. love the maltyness of this brew

Draft. Amber body. Off-white, short head, quickly diminishing. Aroma of grain, caramel, bread. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, chalky texture, lively carbonation. Raw grain taste with secondary flavors of caramel and nuts. Some floral hop flavors, but not much.
