Brewed using the time honored methods and an extra slow lager to release the smooth flavor of our roasted malts. Over 1,100 lbs. Of malted barley in every handcrafted batch! Expect this bier to pour with a rich head of foam that will enhance its incredible spice bouquet. Staghorn Octoberfest combines a smooth amber body with a clean crisp finish.

clear amber/copper with a medium off white frothy head that is quickly discipating and leaving no lace. Nose is malty with barly and touch of alcohol. Taste is sweet with caramel and candy from back to front. Overall clan and crisp, thirst quenching.

Took the tour and then paid $3.50 for three samples...this was one of the choices. It was OK...would have liked to have a real glass to see how it started AND finished.

Pours out a clear copper with a small off-white head. Malty and vinous to the nose. Sweet caramel. All carries over to the flavor. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Quite good for the style.

amber color a small off white quickly dissapated head. I smell almost nothing touches of barley really weak malt. palate is pretty light. Very mild flavor sweet barley and carmel. Overly grainy.. not a great beer.

Thanks Chuck! Pours to a reddish bronzed color with a thin, rapidly diminishing white head. I like the color, and that’s why a 4 on AP even though the head is nearly non-existent. The aroma is light. Toasted breads and a light coffee. Too light to get a good score. The flavor is nicely malty. Sweet breads and a light tea-style hops. Nice earthy spicyness to it.. Good carbonation and lightly sticky mouthfeel. Medium bodied. I’m digging this O’fest.

Pours a rich ruby copper like a proper ’fest should. Aroma of malt, both dry and sweet, slight sour note as well. No sourness in the flavor though, thankfully. A bit drier and less sweet than I had expected from the style -- a bit like a Vienna lager but fundamentally on target. Perfect hop balance -- that is, light application thereof as the style dictates. Not quite as flavorful as other examples of the style. I’ve had better, both of the style and from New Glarus. I probably won’t make it a point to get a sixer of next year’s batch, but if I run across it I’ll grab some.

This was another beer sampled straight from the bottle in a fishing camp environment. The appearance I could gather was amber/slight brown. It’s aroma and initial taste were of the sweet malt, and a well balanced toastiness. Hops were at the right level for a Marzen. A very good beer.

Terminus (3371) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 19, 2005
bottle-pours deep amber with a small white head. not all that aromatic. toasted grains with a light notes of rainwater and carmel. the appearance just sux and the body suffers as well-thin and watery. the flavors are probably the most true to style for the 3 marzens i had on this day. long toasted grain finish. i will try it again once i get the chance.

Aroma is semi-sweet fruit, mostly cherry and apricot, with bready malt overtones. Expansive malt body hints at toffee and caramel with an underbody of slight yeast fruitiness. Creamy mouthfeel, hinges on buttery, but never syrupy. The almost nutty finish is not at all cloying, instead finishing clean and leaving me wanting more. What a great session brew!
