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.

Poured bright red/ambe with thin tan head...smelled of malts and bread...taste was still a little thin, but hops were present to balance all of the malts out (unlike most Octoberfests)...don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t hoppy, just balanced for a change...

Stale malt. Not much going on here. Needed a bit more of the cookie, dough flavors to kick through.

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2004
This beer poured a nice clear amber color with a thin white head. The flavor was malty, bready, and medium-full bodied. The finish was a bit sweet and this was a great Oktoberfest.

Suttree (5682) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Reddish Copper, no head. Toasty and fruit aroma, like red plum jam on toast. Rich and full bodied/ Peppery, Herbaland woodsy. Nice blending of sweet and bitter, very satisfying beer. Thanks to Marinaro500 for this trade!

howie (549) - DeForest, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 17, 2004
Another well-made brew from NG. Beautiful amber color, but worthless head. Nice lightly sweetish, earthy aroma. Toasty grain flavors, black-tea tannins. Lightish but satisfying palate. Great session lager.

wheatbeerboy (103) - Addison, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2004
I actually went to the brewery in New Glarus Wisconsin and sampled this one at one of the local "Swiss-Colony" taverns in town. Very fresh-tasting beer with a nice aroma of roasted malt. The taste is very crisp and clean with a slight bitter, toasted-almond aftertaste. Makes for a great beer to drink in the late fall or early winter months.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Appearance: clear, bright red color, good, 1/4" white head. Subtle aromatics, malty, yes, but not scraming about it. Some fruit notes, a touch coppery, and a bit toasted. Taste: nice little hops up front, soon settling back, very tasty. Medium bodied, lingering finish. Quite a different Oktoberfest, goes farther in some ways than others, more restrained in other ways. Still, owns it’s own unique complexity, less overtly malty-sweet. A bit metallic in the taste, with a very subtle, snappy malty flavor, ultimately crisp and dry in the end. Staghorn embodies a beautiful contradiction, a malty beer that’s not treacly-sweet. In a class of it’s own.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2005 Bottle at Nick’s bar in Madison. Tried again from civ, thanks for the bottle. Has a nice ,medium amber coloring. A small khaki colored head and little carbonation. A very malty nose and some old leaves. There is also some toffee. The taste is also sweet and malty. Has some vinous character, grass and fresh bread. There is also a little bit of caramel. Well done for the style.
