COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2010
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, it’s a pretty good beer. I’ll have another.

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.

LearninBeer (347) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2013
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, shouldn’t have let it age at 4.9% but didn’t really have any choice. Maybe the next time my buddy goes to Wisconsin I can drink this sooner. Not a fair rating.

drywallman (325) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2005
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.

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2008
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. It’s got a medium mouthfeel. It’s alright.

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

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.
