The name Schild Brau means essentially 'Schild 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 Lager.

Our beer uses these same malts to attain a perfect balance between malty sweetness and a firm bitterness.

Pours a sparkling honey colored body with a nice 3 finger head. Lots of carbonation in the head.

It smells like an amber with toasted grains, fresh hop, grassiness and citrus, and some caramel notes. Bouquet is medium strength.

The taste is rich with honey bourbon and toasted malts, very rich, very sophisticated. A slight gravel from carbonation yields to a velvety smooth finish. There's strong hop presence but not overstated. It's about a 60/40 malt and hop balance respectively. That's about where I like my ambers. The finish is chock full of roasted malts, barley, honey, a little cedar, and a slight whiskey finish.

Overall this beer is a winner. I'd buy it again. Very smooth.

A solid amber colored Vienna Style lager. The beer has a nice roasted malt backbone with only a touch of sweetness. The finish is crisp and refreshing. This has been one of my go to beers this summer since I first saw it in the grocery store a few months back. I fell in love with Millstream's Baltic Porter over the winter, this is another offering from the Amana, IA based brewery that does not disappoint.
