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.

12oz shorty bottle picked up on a road trip through Milwaukee. Id have to assume this beer might be a little past it’s prime. Amber-brown color. Patchy, oily head. Sweet aroma, brown sugar? Fruity, easy drinking malt taste. Wow, this is actually quite nice. Balanced and crisp, this is really done right. Malty and rich, while remaining light and medium bodied on the palate. Light amber malt flavors, lots of cream, and some underlying caramel.

12 oz bottle. Light aroma as expected, but a good blend of notes that are decently appealing. Grass and light herb, mild citrus on the hop side, with milder fruitiness, and grainy caramel. Rather unexciting pour with only a light fizzy head that completely dissipates, lighter appearing in body, not watery looking though, mild carbonation, and orange amber in color. No wateriness in the taste, though fairly light and quaffable, with a smoother crispness that is not overly biting. Not a heck of a lot to the flavor, but a rather simple combination herbal grass, light and spicy fruitiness, and caramel toasted cereal. This works well though as the balance is nice. Overall, really not too bad, a good beer for the summer.

Dark amber colored pour. Little bit of bite to this one. Seemed to have some carbonation to it as i drank it.

GJF (1248) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAR 8, 2009
A pretty non-descript beer. Light amber pour. Fairly fizzy. Decent malt backbone but barely any hop flavor to speak of.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2009
Quaffable and satisfying. A medium yellow colour, minimum white head. Neutral aroma, medium mouthfeel. Decent beer all around,I could have one or two. Nothing edgy or really tasty though. Appropriate carbonation.

Bottled. Deep amber in color upon pouring. Slightly sweet malty aroma. Sweet and malty up front with a bit of dark fruit. Somewhat bready with a bit of hops in the finish. Solid Vienna.

Bottle courtesy of pepsican. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of dry malt and doughy. Tastes sweet and malty with a sugary finish.

yngwie (13555) - 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)
