3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 thatís tempered by some nuttiness. I feel that lagers like this are often overlooked. While an amber lager doesnít have the same flavor profile or complexity of an ale, good lagers should have a spot in every beer loverís heart. This one is definitely worthy of consideration. Schild Brau may not blow your mind, but itís a solid example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Received this beer a couple years ago. Light caramel malt aroma. Pours a golden brown red, off white head, mostly diminishing, good lacing. The taste is non-descript, so umami. The body id light, the texture thin and slick, the carbonation soft and the finish short and a slight bitterness. OK, shouldnít have let it age at 4.9% but didnít really have any choice. Maybe the next time my buddy goes to Wisconsin I can drink this sooner. Not a fair rating.
