The name Schild Brau means essentially 'Shield beer' in German. This is our Flagship brew, a Microbrew done in the style of the special beers of Munich. This beer is brewed in the style of a Vienna style lager. This style was first developed by Anton Dreher in Vienna in 1841. He used a new type of sweet caramelized malt that gave the beer a wonderful reddish, coppery color and a juicy malt character. Word soon spread to Germany where this style of beer became immensely popular, and stronger versions called Marzen or Oktoberfest were soon made. Our beer uses these same malts to attain a perfect balance between malty sweetness and a firm bitterness. Our Hallertau hops are imported from Germany give it subtle spicy flavor. The repeated awards that we have received for this beer only confirm why many people consider this beer to be synonymous with Millstream Brewing at its best.

12 oz. bottle from brewery. Pours amber with a decent biege head. Faint aroma of sweet malt. Tastes on the sweet malt side, reminds me somehow of a bock. There is a little hops hiding in there, some caramel too. Nice beer.

Bottle. Pours amber with orange tint. Smells of nut and mild malt but very weak in terms of aroma. Taste of caramel, bourbon and sweet malt. Decent amber.

Thanks to MNovak for my first Iowa rating, 49th State.
Short 12oz bottle. Amber color, thin white head. Aroma of toasted grains, mostly fruity esters. Tastes of mixed berries under the malts. Well balanced of light, toasted grains, earthy bitter hops. Very well made. My 2400th USA Rating.<b/>

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.
