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.

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.

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!

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.

BBB63 (6152) - 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.

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.
