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.

Pours a darkish amber with a faint white head. Aroma is of malts and light roasted nuts. Flavor is candied malts, light roast, and some caramel. Mild bitter in the finish. Pretty decent overall.

Very easy drinking lager with a mahogany body and quickly dissolving head. Sweet flavor leaves very little on the palate, albeit some brown sugary aftertaste. For those folks that feel that the only good beers are those that are very complex or hoppy, avoid this at all costs...for those who are looking for an easy drinking brew that has a pretty good flavor, go take a drive through Iowa and pick yourself up a sixer

Pours an orange-amber with a meidum off-white head. Aroma is malty with hints of hops. Flavor is also malty with hints of fruit, sugar, grains, nuts, and some hops. Light body with medium carbonation. Decent.

pours a dark copper with no head. Sweet malt aroma and hints of biscuit. Nicely carbonated, lots of biscuit and malt flavor all the way. Solid beer.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Very malty and smooth, but with a pleasant freshness. A bit of barnyard, a bit of overripe dark fruit, a touch of holiday spice! Lightly dry finish. Nice depth. I’d love to serve this one as a beer with a bit of something extra to friiends who just grab what ever mass produced beer is on sale.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - JUL 7, 2004
Very nice amber red color with a small tan head. The aroma is a bit nutty and sweet with faint fruit tones, mostly apple, present. It’s sweet and medium bodied and there is a nice carmel malt bill that is quite smooth. A somkey/nuttyness is lingering in the mouth a bit, making this a good beer overall. Make sure you don’t drink it too cold, because it gets better as it warms.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 23, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle. A - Light, crisp copper, orange color. Smaller than average, foamy, bubbly, active head. Below average retention with just a small patch of lace left. S- A lot of toasted malt with caramel and toffee coming out strong. Also a bunch of apple and floral aromas comes out. Hints of toasted bread, but not much. T - Similar to the nose with a lot of toasted caramel malt and plenty of apple. Some spicy, earthy hops along with some herbal and floral hops as well. They definitely play second fiddle to the caramel malt though. Some mineral and toasted bready flavors come out, but they are definitely an after thought. Some grainy and earthy/nutty flavors mid to finish sip. M - Lighter side of medium body with around average carbonation. Fairly crisp with a sticky feel. D - Pretty drinkable beer with a decent mix of flavors. Pretty standard for the style. Notes: An average/middle of the road beer. Not bad but not outstanding. A lot of malty flavor with a decent hop flavor.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2007
12 ounce bottle. Shaker glass. Cloudy amber with a thin head. Aroma was light malt and caramel. Taste was slightly bitter to start, but smoothed as it warmed, with notes of malt and caramel. Nicely balanced, but nothing really stood out.
