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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

This amber lager has a slightly coppery hue that is rather lovely. Gotta love that even, robust head, too. The aroma hints at warm caramel and slightly smoky malt. The taste reveals a lot of sweetness that’s tempered by some nuttiness. I feel that lagers like this are often overlooked. While an amber lager doesn’t have the same flavor profile or complexity of an ale, good lagers should have a spot in every beer lover’s heart. This one is definitely worthy of consideration. Schild Brau may not blow your mind, but it’s a solid example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

Very tasty Marzen. Caramel/malt flavor that makes this a very drinkable beer. 2nd Iowa beer and I like this one better than the first. I will definitely be looking for more beers from the Millstream line.
