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.

Not a bad beer, for a bottled beer. It woulld probably rate higher had I not just come from Onopa Brewery and sampled some incredible beers, but this is still good.

Wow, a great beer from Iowa! Pours a rich amber color with a foamy lasting head. Goes down well, great flavor!

Very easy drinking lager with a mahogany body and quickly dissolving head. Sweet flavor leaves very little on the palate, albeit some brown sugary aftertaste. For those folks that feel that the only good beers are those that are very complex or hoppy, avoid this at all costs...for those who are looking for an easy drinking brew that has a pretty good flavor, go take a drive through Iowa and pick yourself up a sixer

Served on tap at Des Moines Embassy Suites. Clear amber color with a white head. Malt grain aroma. Not much complexity. Basic malt amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours amber with a tan head. Has a macrobrew aroma, I don’t know how else to describe it. This beer is easy to drink, but not much out there. Some light caramel malt flavor. Not much in the way of hop aroma. This may be a good transitional beer, but not not much to crave here.

Pours a darkish amber with a faint white head. Aroma is of malts and light roasted nuts. Flavor is candied malts, light roast, and some caramel. Mild bitter in the finish. Pretty decent overall.

pours a dark copper with no head. Sweet malt aroma and hints of biscuit. Nicely carbonated, lots of biscuit and malt flavor all the way. Solid beer.
