Apparent chocolate and a malty goodness! One of the Millstream standards that you should try if newly exploring Iowa beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber body with a slendy, creamy beige head. Not a long lifed one. The aroma is malty and sweet, toasty with caramel and a touch of toffee. A bit thin for the style, but with a pleasantly sweet caramel taste blended neatly with lightly roasted malt. Quaffable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a deep reddish amber color with a very small off white head. Sweet malt, raw straw aroma. Taste was very malty, wheaty bite. Overall not a whole lot going on here at all.

Deep red color, medium head. A full-bodied amber. Intense malt flavor, sweet and very robust. Not very hoppy. Good balance. Nice flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and very smooth. Aftertaste is malty and slightly sweet. Very nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I remember drinking this beer regularily back in 1991 when brewmaster Larry Schantz first brewed this beer for Millstream. Brewfiend brought a 12 oz bottle to help me remember the North Star Chapter’s Guzzle ’n Twirl shows in St Paul some 17 years ago. Schantz and his family were regular guests and brought plenty of Millstream lager and Schild Brau to the shows. Pours a hazy amber brew with a thick off white head that dissappears quickly. Lacing is nice. Aroma has sweet barley malt, citrus peel, some nuttiness, and pitted fruit. Taste is smooth, a little carbonated, and a little buttery. Finish is smooth and sweet. Though the brewery has changed brewmasters, it’s nice to notice the Schild Brau has not changed in flavor over the years.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber body with a small fizzy light beige head that faded to a wispy film. Fairly minimal aroma of toasted malt, cereal grains, and a touch of hops. The flavor is mildly sweet with a toasty maltiness up front and a light crisp bitterness on the finish. Slightly grainy and a little thin, it does drink pretty easily. Mouthfeel is a little watery and thin with moderate fizzy carbonation. Not the best amongst the style, but drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I love the aroma to this one. Sweet malts jump out of the glass. Like the aroma, the flavor is malt with some toffee. A brandy essence is present. Overall flavor is a little thin.
