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.

Aroma of bready grain, same taste with enough hop bitterness to make it pleasing enough. I haven’t tried much in the way of Octoberfest beers (planning to try some now that they’re releasing), so I don’t have a comparison. Glad I tried it.

Bottle. Pour is gold with a white head, good retention/some lace. Aroma of cereal grain, grassy hop, caramel, lager yeast. Taste is lightly bitter, cereal, grass, soap. Palate is soft, slick, light bitter finish.

Dark & Mildly Hazy Orange with a foamy white head. Nose is Caramel, Nuts, Munich Malts, Grains, Roasted Barley and Yeasts. Flavor is Caramel, Roasted Grain & Barley, Munich Malts Nuts and Biscuits. Body is more moderate but the carbonation is quite mild. Pretty good Octoberfest style beer.

Bottle into a stein in Wisconsin. Bready taste. Golden orange color. I think I just don’t like this style that much - but seems good if you do.

EHopper (619) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Typically don’t search out Octoberfest beers. This one is worth looking for. Mostly grain with a nice bit of barnyard spicy/fruity aroma. Fairly crisp flavor to match with even a hint of dryness in the finish that lingers. A lot to this beer.

Prufrockstar (831) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Draft at The Old Fashioned. Pours amber, no head. Aroma of tasted grain. Taste: straight-up solid lager. Toast, bread. Clean, crisp, short finish. Cereal, some spice. Light sweetness, very light bitterness. Solid.

ddemmingjr (690) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bottle brought back from Medici Retreat. Pours clear amber, bright white creamy head that settles away. Lots of carbonation flowing continuously. Nose is subtle, fruity yeast, nuts, fresh grassy hops. Smells clean like Fall is here. Quite smooth and creamy texture until the finish which is dry and bitter. Nutty, caramel malt goodness and clean grassy hop flavors on the tongue. Some wheat and grain subtle sweetness in there as well. This is a solid Oktoberfest beer that's perfect for sessions. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Light clear copper with a big white head. Nose is fruity and yeasty with a touch of nuttiness. Taste is pretty prototypical Oktoberfest. Mouthfeel is maybe a touch thin. Good example of the style but not terribly unique. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
