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.

Bottled. Reddish amber. The crystal malt flavour is dominating the beer. Chewy mouthfeel. Pleasant, but one-dimensional. I've never really accepted octoberfest beers made with crystal malt, but this one is pretty good.

Bottle from allendodd. Thanks for this one. Pours a very light amber with a large, frothy off-white head. Aroma is fresh fruit and caramel. Rather light in body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is caramel and some sort of light fruit. Finishes mildly fruity and lightly caramel. Not real flavorful, but nice to drink.

Bottle from trade with shigadeyo. Poured clear dark copper color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. The beer goes well with a spicy food.

12-oz bottle received via SS ’07, holdenn. Pours clear amber with a spare, fizzy, white head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (grain, cereal, meal), light hops (grass), average yeast (sweat, earth) with notes of cooked corn. Light bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation, and a chalky finish. Average duration, light sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 Gabf. A touch hazy, golden appearance with a white head. Grassy hoppy, toasty, pale malty lager. Pretty crisp, toasty, pale golden malty lager flavor. Update: 2012 version seemed duller and more like a macro lager to me, though it was drinkable.

Orange/amber pour. Not much head. Aroma is full of fruity and caramel malt with some sweet toasted malt as well. Flavor is a mix of caramel, fruit, and a itty bitty bit of hops. Unique beer. Pretty good.
