Pours a clear bright Amber color with. Thick off white head that sustains very well and leaves good lacing. Nice bready malt aroma with some caramel. Taste is very clean with bready malt, caramel, subtle grassiness and hints of spice. Finishes clean with faint malt flavors. Crisp mouthfeel with a light/medium body and moderate/high carbonation. Easy drinking with nice balanced flavors with nice nuances of flavor. One of my favorite octoberfest beers.

Growing up in Wisconsin, advertising for Heileman’s Old Style beer introduced you to the word "kräusening." Wisconsin’s first couple of brewing, Dan and Deb Carey, thankfully reintroduce us to the technique with their delicious Staghorn. Totally smooth, totally perfect for a Packerland Sunday afternoon.

"light in body and color, but has a nice roasted toasted malt backbone and crisp hoppy finish. not a standout, like so many new glarus beers, but a good beer nonetheless."

Sampled at esbls. Clear darker holden. An off white layer. A grain and fruit aroma. Flavor, too. A hint of spice. Really just ok but not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: pours dark amber with a thin white head, malty aroma and flavor, not bad for a style I generally don’t enjoy.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2014 Smell is bready and yeasty. Nice light doppelbock sort of taste. I?d rather have a nice doppelbock, but this was still a good lager.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cold rust orange appearance; resilient fine bubbled cap. Cold fermentation can be so beautiful; the aroma here is a delicate melange of Munich nuances and slow polished yeast. Autumnal leaves, golden and Thompson raisins, toffee, caramel and toasted wheat bread. These classic characteristics are unchallenged in the focused, confident flavor. Clean, brisk palate. Demanding of large helpings but also amenable to cold weather sips. Straightforward and classic; excellent.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Aroma and color don’t live up to the deScription, but the flavor and palate are very pleasant. Flavor opens very bready and malty, but sweet. Nothing bitter about this beer. Filling and wholesome, like October should be in Wisconsin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This bottle has been sitting in my fridge for a few months now. Just now getting around to drinking it. Poured into my Duvel tulip glass.
A - Pours amber orange with a small one finger tall white head leaving light lace down the glass.
S - Smells of lightly toasted bready caramel malt, light spice, and some dulled hops. Not too much going on but that really isn’t a bad thing.
T - Starts off with a big bready caramel malt kick slowly giving way to a mix of light toffee sweetness and dulled grassy hops. Finish is chewy, lingering for some time. A bit old but still pretty good.
M - Medium-Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Chewy feel with plenty of it lingering through the finish.
O - While I think this one is a bit past its prime I still enjoyed it. I will have to try and get some this year so I can compare the two.
