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.

Sort of an off-slightly rotten apple smell. Very little head and the beer wasn't as red as advertised. The flavor, however, delivers nicely. Rich, sweet on the tongue and has cinnamony qualities. Crisp finish and very nice.

not much head, vibrant, crystal clear copper body. roastey and caramely. a nice octoberfest. a good malt presence all around. a sweet toasty body with a slightly nutty finish.

BBB63 (6090) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Reddish brown hue with little head. Sweet roasted malt aroma with hints of sublime fruit and earthy grains. Taste was initially sweet with caramel and toffee tones. Some undertone of a lively acidic nature crept upon the palate. A touch of allspice upon the finish. A medium-bodied brew with a soft mouthfeel. Quaffable marzen that could use a very slight increase of (saaz) hops to add a crisp edge.

Orange color from the bottle with a thin white head and a dusty grain nose. Sweet grainy malt flavors. Enjoyable Octoberfest.

I would like to give this one a few more tries, but on a first tasting I found it a more-than-acceptable Octoberfest.

fraternie (833) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Thin amber body, light head. Toasty aroma. Notes of caramel in the malt, slightly toasty/woody. Some sweetness in the finish, not very hoppy, resulting in somewhat of a thin finish. Well balanced and enjoyable although not incredibly complex.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2003
Reddish amber with a small non-lasting head. Caramel malt aroma with a hint of coffee. A dry roasted malt taste, slightly fruity and sweet. Nice but a little sweet for me.

Bottled. Reddish amber. The crystal malt flavour is dominating the beer. Chewy mouthfeel. Pleasant, but one-dimensional. I've never really accepted octoberfest beers made with crystal malt, but this one is pretty good.

Bottle. Amber with a laced head. Malt at the front with some spice at the finish. Rather weak. Thanks to Nuffield for the bottle.

Malty sweetness, lively carbonation, but a friend and I both said, "we can’t taste anything." Decent body and color but nothing to impress.
