COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pour is dark brown with a reddish tint. Small head with absolutely no retention. Little carbonation. Aroma is light (no head to help with no aroma) - slightly sweet and roasted malt. Taste is roasted malts from the aroma with a bit of sweetness. Very light mouthfeel with no carbonation. Finish is lighty toasted malt. For something that is suppose to be an Octoberfest this is a poor representation. Not offensive, but very boring.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2005
Deep auburn color. Subtle nose which hints of butterscotch, caramel and currant, along with a touch of medicinal hops. Taste is not cloying, which I often find in this style, but not very substancial either. Light malt flavor. Boring, somewhat bland.

Well, rater #65. Poured a hazy, chunky amber, Tan head. Sweet aroma of caramel. There is something different about this brew, there is a sour-thick mouthfeel. No a real have again. Thanks to heemer for trading.

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.

12 oz bottle thanks to Chris. Pours a brown red color with a beige head. Carmel toffee chocolate sweet nose. More carmels in the flavor, toffee, chocolate, banana. Overly sweet, kinda funky with a cloying finish.
