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!

Clear medium amber with a small head and light streaks of lace. Taste is caramel malt that is, at first, thin and watery, then turns oily before yielding to light carbonation bittering at the finish. Drinkable, but not one of the better examples of the style.

Its October, so I thought I might get my Oktoberfest tick on. This beer was not the place to start. Poured a too pale golden with barely-there white head. Scent was reminiscent of classic american light lager. Malty front end wasn’t very strong and hop bite was nearly non-existent. Meh. Draft - Taco Mac Lindbergh - Atlanta, GA

Clear orange pour with thin white head. Aroma is stale malt. taste is grainy. Watery mouthfeel with a little oil.

Tallahassee, Fl - Momo’s Pizza - 12 oz bottle. Medium orange pour, light off-white head. Earthy aroma, hint of sweet caramel and ripening vegetables. Flavor has some ripening vegetable essence, some nutty notes, some caramel in the back end. Thick enough mouthfeel. Decent.

10/4/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. My first rating on the new Windows app! Mild aroma, light malts, a hint of toffee and fruitiness. Flavor follows, lightly sweet, toasty. Meh

12oz bottle into pint glass. Pours a clear golden amber with a small white head that leaves a little lacing that slides back down into the beer. Aroma is a bit faint. Slightly spicy aroma of toasted caramel malts, brown sugar, cinammon, and a hint of citrus. Taste is a bit subdued and watery. Caramel malts up front with a hint of lemony hops and wheat bread. Palate is a bit light with texture that is a little thin and watery. Average carbonation and a dry finish of wheat bread. Overall enjoyable, but a bit too thin and lacking a bit in flavor. Would drink again though, but I there would have to be a complete lack of other choices available.

Keg @ Sedona. Medium amber, small head. Flabby, sweet, bready nose. Some brown sugar and buts. Angel food cake. The taste is similarly bready, not particularly clean. Sweet finish. Medium body, light carbonation. Overall, could be reigned in a bit.

12 oz bottle for 2 bucks. Pours clear golden amber with a white head. Looks more like a lager than anything else. Smells a little malty, not much else. Taste is slightly crisp at first, almost grassy with a decent hoppy finish. Body is a little thin, not much carbonation either. Not particularly inspiring but I actually like this more than I thought I would. It’s at least better than Highland’s crappy IPAs.
