Nice, deep golden amber. Foamy off white head, shows moderate retention and lacing.
Hardly anything on the nose. Tiny malt sweetness.
Taste is almost as small. Diluted carmel sweetness. Hints of butter. A touch of slightly spicy hops in the finish. Everything here is fine and dandy, but just not enough. Simple and quaffable. But lacks any real character. Those two sentances could label Millstream.
Mouthfeel is creamy yet vacant of substance. Easy to drink.

I am rating this on the heels of several Great Lakes Eliot Ness'....my premier Vienna. This one pales greatly in comparison. Not bad, but well short of stellar.

3.81/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 12 oz short brown with a twist off cap, no freshness date to be found.

Appearance: Garnet red with a fluffy bubbly head that crawls up the glass.

Smell: Clean with a caramel candy like sweetness.

Taste: Incredibly smooth, quite clean and a little chewy with a tasty malt flavour all throughout the mouth. The medium body holds the malt well with a mild toasted flavour, hops leave only a small bite though still enough to add a touch of balance. More grain and malt lead the tastebuds in the finish ... nice mix of grain and residual sweetness.

Notes: Reminiscent of the Oktoberfest style this turns out to be a great amber lager ... very drinkable and very satisfying. A proud beer to have brewed.
