Pours a deep caramel color with a lasting head from the tap. Flavor and aroma is of hops, caramel, vanilla, and barley. Good mouthfeel and excellent aftertaste.

Had a nice amber color and a good head but the aroma and flavor had strong diacetyl (butter) character which hurt overall quality.

On tap A nice deep amber color. Light aroma. Flavor was malt, nice complex flavor although not very substantial. Not as crisp as the best but a pronounced hop flavor, good balance. Not exactly smooth, but inoffensive, drinkable without any bad aftertaste.was good with the meal, but might have been a shade too warm.

An excellent brew! It is just so enjoyable to drink, a milestone in casual beers. Very smooth, and a wonderful mix of malt and hops, but nothing to bold or extreme

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.

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.
