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 from Degarth. Thanks! Pours a hazy chocolate brown with minimal head. Aroma is toasted malt, bread and prunes. Nice roasty chocolate, nut and plum taste. Very nice.

Dogbrick (11313) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Acquired via trade. The beer is a dark copper/amber color with a thin beige head that dissipated rather quickly. Very thin lacing. Lightly malty aroma, with a hint of nuts. Medium-bodied with a flavor somewhere between a Marzen and a regular Amber. There is a tartness under the malt and caramel that made the character seem a little off. However it was still fairly easy to drink. The finish is alternatingly fruity and malty. Overall not an exceptional beer but it is smooth with a nice taste.

12oz bottle. Poured a dark orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Lighter floral, caramel and grainy aromas. Tastes of caramel and a little on the fruity side. Drinkable even if it is kinda boring.

Pretty mediocre stuff. Reminiscent in taste more of a bock than a vienna. It isn’t great.

Sammy (11053) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2009
Quaffable and satisfying. A medium yellow colour, minimum white head. Neutral aroma, medium mouthfeel. Decent beer all around,I could have one or two. Nothing edgy or really tasty though. Appropriate carbonation.
