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.

This beer sampled at Brew Ha Ha 2005: The guy poured it for me in a hurry and it left a good head for this type of beer. It smelled really good almost fruity but, it all ended there. The taste was not good at all

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

Pours a nice dark amber color, transparent, and had a white head; but the fact the head left with no trace brings it down. Smell of caramel and toffee. Sweet caramel greets your taste buds, paired with some toffee and a soft, earthy bitterness to even things out. Really well balanced taste. Higher carbonation than average, medium bodied. After finishing up a test, this one hit the spot nicely. I’d have another, but unfortunately this is the only one I had.
Worth a try.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

Bottle, thanks to iowaherkeye. Poured a clear amber color with a thick white head. Nice malty aroma, crisp malty flavor with a little bit of back end bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and a clean finish. Nice amber, but nothing to write home about.

This beer pours a nice red color with a small head. Aroma of malts, hops, fruit, and caramel. Nice lacing around my glass. Flavor is of malts and caramel. Finish is nice and smooth. A very enjoyable beer.
