Picked this up going to the Bristol renaissance fair. I wanted to compare this Oktoberfest style beer with Two Brothers Atom Smasher (oktoberfest) style beer. I absolutely love anything that New Glarus produces but in this case Two Brothers Atom Smasher takes the win. Staghorn is extremely smooth with a barley flavour. Nice hopp flavour as as you open your mouth after you finish swallowing the amber colored brew. Well rounded mellow smooth taste. I'd deffinately grab another 6er if I'm up in Wisconsin within the next month or so... Or even next years Oktoberfest.

12oz bottle of the 2013 seasonal bottling. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 8/26/2013.

This beer pours with a clear copper/amber body with a fluffy 2cm white head that slowly dissipates into a thin film with lots of bubbly lacing on the side. The lacing sticks as I drink this beer. Absolutely a great looking beer- pretty typical of New Glarus beers, now that I think about it.

Nose is primarily a clean yeast flavour. As it warms, I can smell some sweet biscuits and caramel. A bit of floral hoppiness as well. Nothing too pungent or special here. Smells like a typical lager until it warms up some.

I really like how this beer tastes. Its got a very clean malt flavour with sweet biscuits, caramel and honey that is complemented very well by floral hops and a nice sourdough yeastiness. Very complex, but smooth and clean tasting. Great flavour profile here.

The feel on this is very nice. Clean, refreshing in a light bodied beer that is well carbonated. Slightly dry finish that is very heavy on the malts. This is a very good Oktoberfest-style beer, one of the best I've had, actually. Nice work on this lager, Dan.
