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!

Bottle. Pours a fairly clear amber color with little head. Very little to this beer - I get little smell from it, and just some hints of maltiness to the taste. It’s a basic average beer for the style. Meh.

Don’t feel it’s as full bodied as the description. Good malt but not enough spice, Easy drinking

Bottle. Translucent dark amber with a tall, frothy tan head. Aroma is caramel, toasted malt, and light spicy hops. Big caramel and sweet malt up front with spicy hops, toffee and toasted malt following. Body is medium and slightly chewy with a moderate, bubbly carbonation. Finished with more caramel, bigger toffee presence, spicy hops, toasted malt and dark bread.

Smells like a fest beer. Tastes like a fest beer. Finishes clean. Overall a decent fest beer.

Draft at taco Mac. Pours brown with a thin white head. A few caramel notes on the nose. Some nice maltiness on the tongue. Finishes clean. Solid!

This is a tasty beer but it is a bit sweet for my taste. Still, it has a decently autumnal flavor.

Bottle. Crisp and light tasting. Nice for the fall. Nice beer for a sat afternoon raking leaves. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Found a bottle of this when we were in the OBX visiting. Consumed on 9/22/09. Reviewed from notes. Poured into my pint glass a crystal clear pale orange. Minimal bubbles rising through. 1 inch white head on top. Some retention, little lacing. Smell of earthy dull bitterness mixed some hints of caramel sweetness. The mouth is thin and lacking carbonation on the tongue. Mild flavor on this one. Some sweet caramel, slight bittering hops in the middle. Nothing noteworthy about this one at all. Pretty average, tame, and unoffensive.

Bottle poured into glass. Nice spice hop aroma with hints of toasted bread. Flavor is malty but not overly sweet. Well balanced and easy to drink.
