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.

Bottle: Hazy amber, fairly dark, moderate off-white foamy head, fairly nice lacing, very light carbonation.   Combo of malts and grains on the nose.   Slight pellet food as well.   Pale malt start, grainy but not too bad.   Rather boring.   Needs to be maltier and a bit sweeter.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Husky finish, slightly malty.   Not bad, but not very interesting.   Thanks for the freebie Eric!

mmmbeer (1418) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Bottle from ketchepillar- 12 oz bottle- poured transparent darken amber, slightly heavy carbonation, white head quickly bubbled away. Aroma of roasted malt and a touch of sweetness. Hits the mouth with a medium body, the malt tastes a little old, some hops on the finish. Had great potential, but the malt is off to me.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 28, 2009
Light burnt orange color with very little white head. Aroma of dough and some stale malt. Crisp, albeit watery flavor with some notes of caramel and dough. A bit of Hallertau hops in the finish. Pretty bland and nondescript.
