A really nice marzen. Pours a nice shimmering bronze. Very clean aromas and flavors. Bread and apples is what I get. Delicious stuff.

Bottle as shown. Pours a clear orange with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong spice, bready malt, and caramel. Thin mouthfeel with nice spice upfront, cinnamon and nutmeg, good.

My favorite example of the style. Roasted malts abound on the aroma, spice is also present. On the palate there are cereal grains, spice, and a bit of toast. Finishes very clean and crisp.

Bottle. Clear copper with a beige head. Light fruit and malt aromas with a little spice. Fruity and clean. Amazing for a style a usually don't care for.

Very enjoyable and smooth. Not too hoppy at all but nice dark fruit, malt and nut characteristics.

Had a recent oktoberfest blind tasting with a group of about 10 people (mostly WI beers), and staghorn surprisingly came in dead last. Hints of 7up, or flat white pop; and not as malty as most other beers in the style.

12 oz. bottle. Clear copper color, lasting bubbly head with traces of lace. Aroma is floral with German malts and lager yeast. Taste is sweet caramel malts that are slightly balanced by some earthy bitterness keeping it crisp and very clean finish. Decent bready malt body. Really true to the style and I am drinking this a tad on the old side, pretty drinkable and well made.

Gorgeous golden amber. Smell is explosive! A huge amount of floral, malt and cherrywood. Pretty good. Very straight up bright and almost oaky in the stickiness of it. Lots of darker fruits with just as much citrus. Slightly peppery finish.
