COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Clawhammer Oktoberfest is a lightly colored, but toasty, rich and full bodied Marzen style lager, brewed with traditional German malt and the finest noble hops. A spicy hop finish and aroma balance out the abundance of malt flavor. Clawhammer means pure high-country enjoyment!

On tap at Coasters. Copper pour with a very thin white head. Aroma of light caramel malt and soap. Toffee and caramel sweetness as well as light floral hops. Slightly bitter aftertaste, although nothing unpleasant. Not really one of my favorite styles but good for what it is.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Fresh bottle. Pours a clear, dark amber hue with a medium, fading head of off-white froth. A soapy wash of lace dries to scattered micro-spots. The nose is clean and fresh, with light grain and toffee malt being countered by floral, peppery hops. Flavors show the same, fresh cereal grain and clean pale malt spiced with lively pepper and dried floral hops. Medium bodied and lively carbonated, it drinks easy. Simple, but well executed.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2009
Poured from the tap to a bright reddish orange with thin off white head and slight lacing throughout the glass. Aroma was a faint fruity (orange and apples) with a backdrop of spices and cookie dough. Mouthfeel was medium bodied nd slightly tingly, and the flavor brought out more of the doguh and spicy fruits. Finish slightly spicy and refreshing. Not bad.

fluffy (1664) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2009
pours dark reddish brown with a thin head. some breadiness in the aroma and a bit of maltiness. flavor is more hoppy than i expected, which is predictable coming from Highland Brewing. notes of roasted grains, toffee and butteriness. fairly clean finish. good, not great.

redlight (2316) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Honey malts, biscuity, spicy hops on the nose. Pours amber gold with a thin white head. Very smooth and malty, biscuity, with spicy grassy hops in the flavor. Very mild, but very drinkable.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Amber/gold. Off white head. Toasty, biscuity malt and earthy, bitter hops. A bit of an old wood element on the finish. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Drinkable, but unimpressive fest beer.

Drake (8539) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Cary, NC. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin creamy white head. Poor head retention and decent lacing. Aroma of lightly toasted malts, nuts, caramel and faint apricot and other fruits. Taste is lightly toasted grain, floral and fruity notes including notes of plum and peach, some nutty notes and a leafy hoppiness. Medium bodied.

nearbeer (3715) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2009
12 oz. Clear copper with a quarter inch of creamy foam that tries to last. Nose of dry earth, husky grain, caramel and a tinge of spiciness. Flavor is a nice blend of light toasted grain, caramel apple and a touch of earthy spice. Hints of pepper, lemon and wood resin on the finish. Light-medium body is mildly tingly, softish and smoothly carbonated.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy medium orange color. The head was thin and white. Smelled of hay, subdued noble hops, and sweet cream. Light to medium bodied. Delicately sweet up front with a dryish finish. I tasted hay, bitter earthy leaves, and a hint of toffee.

blankboy (6046) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle (12oz) -- courtesy of MrFacto. Pours a slightly hazy orange-gold with a quickly diminishing small white head. Mild aroma is bready, malty and fruity. Flavour of malt, slightly toasty and fruity along with very light spicy hops and a light bitter finish -- simple yet pleasant to drink. Average bodied. Nothing great just simply a good beer.
