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

Aroma of sweet malt. Very nice amber color. Tan head quickly faded away. Sweet, biscuity, slightly nutty flavor. Smooth finish. Easy to drink and enjoy.

12 oz bottle - Nice orange/amber color with lively carbonation. Not much in the way of aroma. Light bitterness with a strong malty flavor. Texture is a bit oily. Overall, itís a pretty good beer. Iíll have another.

Pours dark amber with a small bubbly head. It smells of sweet malts. The flavor is rather crisp and a little grassy with sweetness following through. A little nutty. A little bitter on the finish. Itís got a medium mouthfeel. Itís alright.

Bottle. Nice color and head. Slightly malty flavor. This was my favorite of the Mill Stream beers until I tried their pilsner.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one was from a batch mfg. in 6/05, so it is fairly fresh. Poured with a soapy head that lasted for a while, and had a dark orange opaque body. It was sweet with light caramel malt, and just enough hops presence to balance. Really heavier on the sweet malt. The body was what was expected of a lager. Overall a good session brew.

My notes are spotty on this one, lets see it was dark brown with decent head on it. tasted good after a long day of looking at tractors.

On tap. Poured a dark amber. Flavor is sweet malt, some roasts. Nothing that really makes it stand out, but it goes good with some sauerbraten.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2010 Re-rate: Perfection! love the changes in the beer in the past couple of years. Itís just getting better and better. I feel lucky to have this brewery so close to home!
Beautiful red pour with a medium head and lacing. Nice malt and grain aroma. Very sweet malt flavor with a hearty body that ends a little bitter sweet.
