4.28/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Reddish copper tone. Decent head and lacing.

Smell: Mostly malty, quite appetizing.

Taste: Again with the malt, in a biscuity sense. Hoppy in the sense of many New Glarus beers: not that bitter, but very flavorful. A mild sweetness encapsulates the tongue and morphs into a pleasant aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, seems to have less carbonation than some Octoberfests. In this way, it's somewhat softer and smoother than some of its style-mates.

Drinkability: Very easy to drink, even for the unoffensive Octoberfest style. Alcohol content is a tad high, but this is not a detraction. The beer is slightly punchy, but this seems to come more from the flavors than the alcohol.

Notes: I'd say this is my favorite American Octoberfest, and probably favorite Marzen period. It's not my favorite style, but New Glarus sure crafts their beers right. When I'm in the mood for a malty autumn beer next year, I'll definitely pick up some Stags.
