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.

On tap in Amana at the Ronneburg Restaurant. Poured a rich copper color with a nice light tan head that lasted quite a while and left good lacing. Roasted malts in the nose and other aromas of carmel and slght hops. Decent mouthfeel and a solid malt flaror. Low carbonation makes this a smooth and fairly enjoyable brew.

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.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - JUL 10, 2006
On tap. Poured a dark amber. Flavor is sweet malt, some roasts. Nothing that really makes it stand out, but it goes good with some sauerbraten.

uglyblond1 (177) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 3, 2006
On tap A nice deep amber color. Light aroma. Flavor was malt, nice complex flavor although not very substantial. Not as crisp as the best but a pronounced hop flavor, good balance. Not exactly smooth, but inoffensive, drinkable without any bad aftertaste.was good with the meal, but might have been a shade too warm.

Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2006
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.

Tmoney99 (14964) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Light sweet roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet flavor with a moderate sweet finish of average duration. Goes well with spicy food.

2.6
vyvvy (6731) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2006
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.

2.5
thegreenrooster (4558) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2006
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.

3.3
oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Pours a nice deep amber color. Aromas of fruit/malt. Flavor has a nice clean taste, mildly hoppy with some nice malty tones.

3.1
hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2006
12oz bottle. Poured a dark orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Lighter floral, caramel and grainy aromas. Tastes of caramel and a little on the fruity side. Drinkable even if it is kinda boring.
