2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured cloudy medium orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasted nutty and bready malts with wet medium-skinned fruits and related tartness accenting.. OK for the style. The flavor found sweet caramel and fruity notes at the core with tart fruit skins and a hit of oxidation around.. found some prickly carbonation and peppery notes on the finish. Lighter-bodied and sweet overall on the palate.. a tad too sharp toward and through the finish.. not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Bottle courtesy of pepsican. Pours copper with a white head. Smells of dry malt and doughy. Tastes sweet and malty with a sugary finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Apparent chocolate and a malty goodness! One of the Millstream standards that you should try if newly exploring Iowa beer.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pretty mediocre stuff. Reminiscent in taste more of a bock than a vienna. It isn’t great.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Hazy amber, fairly dark, moderate off-white foamy head, fairly nice lacing, very light carbonation.   Combo of malts and grains on the nose.   Slight pellet food as well.   Pale malt start, grainy but not too bad.   Rather boring.   Needs to be maltier and a bit sweeter.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Husky finish, slightly malty.   Not bad, but not very interesting.   Thanks for the freebie Eric!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. A. From Iowa. Thanks go to John M.
Clear amber colour with a small off-white head.
Malt, nuts and... nuts and... nuts in the aroma. Dryish.
The flavour is malt, sweetness and a touch of hops. Boring.
