Brewery Review: Millstream Brewery - Amana, IA
Windmill Wheat - Pale yellow color, dense white foam head. High carbonation. Yeasty aroma and a lot of wheat...even doughy. Taste is spicy and a lot more flavor than light American lager (as it was compared to). Creamy smooth. Dry finish.
Johns Generations White Ale - Lot more haze. Foamy white head. More wheat in the flavor. Spicy and clove phenols in the aroma. Banana emerges more in the flavor. Smooth texture.
Schokolade Bock - Bock colored...rustic red with a tint of brown. Wet lacing and a lesser head. Aroma is carameled and chocolaty. Taste erupts with a bittersweet chocolate while caramel takes a fore-hold. Dry with again, a grain flavor.
Overall the beers were good, especially the stout and pale. However I did notice a prominent graininess/grain husk to most of the beer.
