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 wheat bread, alcohol, and bread - reminds me of a bock. love the maltyness of this brew iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - JAN 29, 2010
This beer pours a nice red color with a small head. Aroma of malts, hops, fruit, and caramel. Nice lacing around my glass. Flavor is of malts and caramel. Finish is nice and smooth. A very enjoyable beer. TerryR (391) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Aroma of sweet malt. Very nice amber color. Tan head quickly faded away. Sweet, biscuity, slightly nutty flavor. Smooth finish. Easy to drink and enjoy. Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2010
12 oz bottle - Nice orange/amber color with lively carbonation. Not much in the way of aroma. Light bitterness with a strong malty flavor. Texture is a bit oily. Overall, it’s a pretty good beer. I’ll have another. drywallman (362) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2005
This one was from a batch mfg. in 6/05, so it is fairly fresh. Poured with a soapy head that lasted for a while, and had a dark orange opaque body. It was sweet with light caramel malt, and just enough hops presence to balance. Really heavier on the sweet malt. The body was what was expected of a lager. Overall a good session brew.

Bottle, thanks to iowaherkeye. Poured a clear amber color with a thick white head. Nice malty aroma, crisp malty flavor with a little bit of back end bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and a clean finish. Nice amber, but nothing to write home about. hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Pours dark amber with a small bubbly head. It smells of sweet malts. The flavor is rather crisp and a little grassy with sweetness following through. A little nutty. A little bitter on the finish. It’s got a medium mouthfeel. It’s alright. bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - DEC 18, 2003
This is one of the best beers I've had, a very pleasing surprise. The aroma is nice and malty, just the way I like it. The color is a beautiful dark orange-amber. The flavor is deliciously malty, a little sweet, with just a hint of hop presence. I don't know what some of the other people are talking about when they say it has a thin mouthfeel, as this was the creamiest, smoothest bottled beer I've ever had. Absolutely delightful, and I'll definitely keep some of this around. bigcat03 (316) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JUN 30, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 Bottle into a shaker. Pours copper with a small and quickly dissipating white head. Very little aroma with just a hint of malt. A nice toasted malt and biscuit taste throughout. Good medium body and carbonation. A nice amber but nothing amazing. pojo41 (315) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - NOV 6, 2006
Bottle. Nice color and head. Slightly malty flavor. This was my favorite of the Mill Stream beers until I tried their pilsner.
