Pours a reddish brown color, head is a copper color. Tastes of hops, slight spice, and something that I know I should know what it is but I can’t place it. Millstream never fails to produce quality beer.

A darker amber color under the off while head. The big head dies quickly. A slightly earthy aroma. A nice full mouth feel but not heavy. At first, it is slightly sweet and malty. Then, the tartness comes out. The brew goes down easy and has a pleasant after taste.

Really malty flavor. Real thick feel when drinking it. Great flavor, one of my favorite beers. Really easy to drink, no aftertaste, and has great flavor. GOOD BEER.

Millstream’s flagship Schild Brau Amber is a Vienna style lager. Deep copper in color, it pours lovely with a full head that sticks to the glass as you sip. The initial sip is malty and sweet (for a lager), with a gentle rolling bite of bittering hops. With another swirl of the glass and a sample sip or two, there’s a spicy herbal aroma at the nose--I suspect dry-hopping--that opens up a small dinner party in your mouth ...not the Animal House type, but the cocktails and good conversation type of party. The layers are complex and interesting. Very clean, well balanced with an excellent body for two-row malt.
Quite simply, this is outstanding.

A-Carmel and nutty. A-medium Amber brown hue. T-sweet Carmel malts with subtle spice. P-Mild carbonation with a small amount of dry finish that helps with sweetness in beginning. O- a good representation for a German style amber. Sweet Carmel and roasted nut flavors.

This is one of the great everyday beers for me! Its a beautiful amber lager with a malty aroma...hint of caramel. Initial flavor is sweet with a fresh spicey hop finish. It is a bit thin, but seemed a bit creamier on tap at the millstream. Great beer.

Pours a golden carmel with a thin white smell of bread and yeast with a hint of fruit....Taste is bitter yeast dough mess...this beer is a nice accent piece if you mix it with the stout.....
