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.

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 (3190) - 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.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2005
Poured a rich red-amber color w/ a short head, scant lacing and a mild fruity aroma with touch of hops and hint of alcohol. Light bodied with a smooth malty flavor, some toastiness and slightly bitter in the finish. Just so-so, no date.

kramer (5501) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 15, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a beautiful tawney color with a small white head that settled quickly. Generous amounts of Munich malt in the nose imparting a nice toffee and caramel scent. Flavor is rather unimpressive. None of the caramel and toffee flavor expected with that nose. A little bit of cardboard in the finish makes me wonder if this is maybe last years batch. Medium bodied with soft carbonatioon. Overall not a real great attempt at an Octoberfest. Left me underwhelmed.

fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 28, 2005
Pours to a medium head; amber color. Tastes of malt and a tinge of alcohol. Slightly sweet, too. This is a pretty good Octoberfeste beer.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 22, 2005
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.
