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.

yngwie (12608) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle. It pours a clear, deep golden body with a small off-white head. Malty nose with some caramel, umami and something reminiscent of the fat in cooked sheep. Doesn’t sound very good, but actually it was a quite good one. Malty caramel flavor with umami and roasted malt. The finish is much the same, caramel, roasted malt and umami. Medium body. A nice and quite surprising lager, nothing more. (080822)

jebert (470) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Pours a beautiful amber cooper color with a nice sized light tan head. Nose is malt. Creamy,not overly carbonated mouthfeel. Roasted malt dominates flavor with added notes of carmel and coffee. A well made good tasting Iowa brew that even a Badger can enjoy. This Vienna pairs well with barbequed foods, especially ribs, chicken or burgers.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden deep orange with a fully gone head. Mild spiced and alcohol aroma,mild roasted malt note towards breadish. Mild sweet and breadish roasted base flavour with a mild spice note. Nicely counterbalanced by some bitterhops giving a nice smoothness and balance into the finish.

fidelis83 (1823) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - AUG 5, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2009 Smells of bready malts, grits, and dry leaves, caramel, butterscotch buttered white toast and toasted grain. Flavor has a great malt up front, carmel, bicuity, sweet grain, light but sweet butterscotch and a hint of chocolate. Almost no sign of hops for a while then a nice bitter spicy, verrrry slightly citrus note about the same time as a slightly funky woody malt, grassy toward the finish. Decent beer with a suprising level of complexity as it warms.
