Amber with a medium white head. Aroma of light caramel , sweet malts and light German hops. Taste is pretty light too, mostly of sweet caramel with a little hop character to balance it out. A drinkable and forgettable Vienna.

Light burnt orange color with very little white head. Aroma of dough and some stale malt. Crisp, albeit watery flavor with some notes of caramel and dough. A bit of Hallertau hops in the finish. Pretty bland and nondeScript.

A delicious and very true to style old world Vienna. This has a nice malty nose & a good flavor with a well balanced hop bitterness. Very easy drinking (I could drink this all night) It is a very nice deep red color that has a nice head and leaves a good lace.

An okay amber. Near to no aroma. The flavor is a bit off. The malts taste like they were roasted just a bit too long, and the hops add a level of surprising astringency.

Pour is a dark red with a small white head. Aroma is lagery with a bit of caramel in there. Flavor is malty but dull all over. Really watery in the end and not a good rep of the style.

Golden amber, little head w/ some spots of lace. Typical Millstream character--sweet w/o much in the way of hops. Drinkable but like all their beers there’s nothing special.

12oz bottle 9/28/13 (Hy-Vee Cedar Rapids)-Pours a clear amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, and grains. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was pretty tasty.

Big thanks to Secret Santa Eve for this one! Nice coppery amber appearance, decent head fades into a ring. Very faint aroma of light malt. Pleasant biscuit flavor, with a slightly grassy and floral hop finish. Not bad at all, an enjoyable easy drinker.

Had it on tap at Dublin Underground in Iowa City. Deep copper color with a thin head. Spicy nose and flavor with a hint of hoppy flavor and bitterness. Dry finish. Solid brew without being flashy.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 This is the flagship brew at Millstream. It is worth stopping for a six-pack when traveling across Iowa. Very surprising lager flavor especially if allowed to warm a little.
UPDATE 1/26/6: Still a fine beer! Nice beautiful dark amber with a yellowish-beige head. Rich caramel malt aroma. Nice medium malt body with a mild carbonation and a clean crisp finish. Hop bitterness is low, but provides what it needs to to balance the beer. Well made. While this beer has color, it is indeed a light lager and needs to be consumed fresh. It may not survive well in the Ratebeerian Trader’s basement, so judge the low ratings accordingly.
