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.

Orange-amber color with a thin, short-lived, white head. Smells of heavy malt, newspapers, autumn leaves and brazil nuts. However, as the beer warms it smells exactly like a bag of dry dog food. Mouthfeel is medium to full for this style. Taste is hoppy and a little watery slathered upon a rich, somewhat fruity, malt backbone. Aftertaste is dry and remniscent of soda water. Overall a decent marzen.

Cloudy copper pour with a thin white head. Nice malty aroma. Some spice lingers in the background. Pretty smooth taste. Malty, spicy, smooth balance. Nice brew! Thanks to Jeremy (jgb9348) for bringing this down!!

jgb9348 (5067) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Clear copper coloured body with orange highlights and a thin off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin, malt, nutmeg, some fruit and hardly any hops. Medium-bodied; Strong spicey flavour with a big malt background and little else. Aftertaste has a bunch of nutmeg flavour and a dry feeling. Overall, a great beer to try with everyone-I got this twelve ounce bottle in a trade with BBB63, and sampled it on 26-May-2004.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2004 A very rich, amber-orange colored feast of malt. Malt flavor is tilted heavily to roasted and toasted aroma and flavor. Slight chestnut and acorns, maybe even a bit of soft smoke. Malty but not sweet. Huge body, only a hint of spice, big malt taste. Not a lot of head, but lingers. Have had few USA Marzens that are this good.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2004 This is an excellent Oktoberfest. It has a beautiful amber shine with a just off white head. Smooth palate with just the right maltiness. Excellent finish. As good a Paulaner. Anybody got a recipe for this one?

Bottle pours a clear copper color with an off white head and very little lace. The aroma consists of apple and malt. The flavor starts out sweet and malty and finishes with more of the fruit quality. The palate is not overly rich or light and with some nice carbonation in the small bubble tingly sense. Overall, this is a good Marzen and will look for it again next time I am across the border...

Running out of New Glarus beers to try for the first time but this is one I missed so far. Poured with a big head, and a fruity smell. First taste sweet and copperry taste. Aftertaste is fruity kind of a cider taste to it. Would recommend a six pack to anyone.

Nice smooth fest beer. Lots of sweet malts, but not overly caramel tasting. Tastes like some winter spices snuck in there too. Finish was o.k. - I'd prefer a pinch more hops there.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2003
Solid darkish copper color with a small puffy off-white head that sticks around a while eventually fading to nothing as its consumed and leaves sheets of lace that dispear fast to stick in webby lines and spots. Wonderful toasted aroma on this, touch of caramel and light floral dried hops, very crisply toasted with a hint of ripe fruity-like sweetness reminescent of a sour bread dough. Really becomes a sniffer as it warms. Taste is a nice toasty, lightly sweet mix of maltyness, very solid through and through. Sweetness is strong but subdued in its presense over an amazing and great little toastyness, some thinner caramel sits in the back with some light herbal/floral dried hops setting up the finish to end with a nice mellow crispness and light lingering sweetness. Medium body feel, lightly creamy aspect and a lovely finish. A very nice O'fest beer that goes down with ease. A new favorite to keep around, top notch and a cut above alot of the mish-mashy O'fest brews that every brewery seems to make. This one is done right. Great job New Glarus!
