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.

eh, it looked good. Amber color white head. Flavour had some malt character and hints of caramel but overall it seemed watered down. Nothing really distincitve impressed me about this beer.

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.

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!

Sweet caramel aroma. Darkish amber color with a vigorous beige head. Nearly medium body with light fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mildly sweet caramel balanced with some hardly bitter, slightly floral hop. The finish is balanced, not all that sweet. Fairly pleasant drink - for a lager.

Sammy (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2009
Quaffable and satisfying. A medium yellow colour, minimum white head. Neutral aroma, medium mouthfeel. Decent beer all around,I could have one or two. Nothing edgy or really tasty though. Appropriate carbonation.

A pretty non-deScript beer. Light amber pour. Fairly fizzy. Decent malt backbone but barely any hop flavor to speak of.

Onslow (1278) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Darke amber brew with big puffy head. Light aroma of sweet grains,- caramel malts, a little hay . Taste is dominated by a sweet maltiness from start to finish, with a little hoppiness rising at the end of the swallow. Palate is medium. Overall, a good brew but a little on the sweet side for my taste, even for a Vienna.

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.
