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.

Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has primary notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of pumpernicle bread, alcohol, and bread - reminds me of a bock. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle. It pours a clear, deep golden body with a small off-white head. Malty nose with some caramel, umami and something reminiscent of the fat in cooked sheep. Doesn’t sound very good, but actually it was a quite good one. Malty caramel flavor with umami and roasted malt. The finish is much the same, caramel, roasted malt and umami. Medium body. A nice and quite surprising lager, nothing more. (080822)

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.
