COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a very clear deep reddish copper, briefly topped by half an inch of off-white foam, then replaced by a very thin ring of foam and an even thinner layer of film. No lacing. Mild caramel and some sweet fruitiness in the aroma. Very tasty beer - lots of toasted malt, some caramel, some grain, a hint of chocolate, and fruit. A mild hop presence in the finish provides good balance. Quite a bit of that sweet fruitiness remains in the aftertaste.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2007 12 oz bottle. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was off white and reduced fairly quickly to a thin film. Not much lace was left behind. Aroma was of light brown sugar with a papery note. Fruity and slightly sweet with toasted nut and a bit of spicy black pepper accompanied by light malty caramel/molasses flavors. Decent beer, but a bit overrated.

hopdog (10913) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2006
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and slightly hazy copper color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, burnt, caramel, and some nuts. Tastes of caramel, toasted nuts, and lightly bready. Tastes started out nice but had a weak and thin finish.

dhlesq (233) - Thousand Oaks, California, USA - AUG 4, 2006
Aroma of caramel and vienna malt, some biscuit, all-natural peanut butter. Appears a crystal-clear copper color with no noticeable effervescence and with no head to speak of. Flavor is malty, sweet, biscuity, with moderate spice in the finish. Palate is thick and chew, yet somehow refreshing in the end. Overall, this is a pleasant brew, and one that is just a bit greater than the sum of its parts.

Sweet and tasty. Amber colored beer goes down smooth and is very satisfying. Maltly flavor put this one heads above most marzens I tasted. Not the best I’ve had, but a solid effort.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 This is one of my favs for new glaur! This is what Oktober should taste like, not to dark, but dark enough, with a rich full body that goes down EZ duz it. The caramel taste makes me go like this! go like this! it makes ya go GO GO!!!

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Pours amber with red highlights and an off-white head. Aroma of malts, toffee and caramel with mild hop undertones. Flavor follows aroma wonderfully and introduces a slight malty sweetness with a nice crisp light bitter hop finish.

I can honestly say that this is my favorite of the New Glarus bunch. Warm, malty flavor that finishes very nicely clean. A nice compliment to those late fall barbecues or for sitting around the fire as its rich, almost caramel toffee taste enlivens the senses.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2006
Yay! I love good Octoberfests. Caramel, brown sugar, and pecans. A light touch of herbs and spice from the hops. Smooth, thick, rich, and non-sticky. Excellent all-round.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 19, 2005
Bottle via trade with DavidP. Clearish amber-red body, thin off-white head. Rich toasty, caramely, cerealy aroma with earthy hops notes. The sweet caramels and cereals are cut by a nice, crisp bitterness and earthy hops finish. Not heavy or cloying like many Oktoberfests. New Glarus is one of the best brewers of session ales and lagers there is.
