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!

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle. Standard bronze color, white headed Octoberfest with a biscuity nose. Flavor starts with caramel, then hits with a hop bite and a long, spicy finish.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Ar: Somewhat soapy, a bit of mossy hops and sweet grain. Ap: Clear orange-amber - medium off-white head with good retention and pretty nice lacing. T: Crusty and toasty malt up front - malty and mossy hops, clean - mid-palate and finish is full and malty, though not sweet. P: Medium-light bodied - medium-high carbonation - mouthfeel comes off as a bit watery - overall, quite dry. O: Sessionable o-fest - nice malt character and dry, though somewhat watery and overall underwhelming.

12oz bottle. Orange amber color, tall white head. Aroma of toasted malts, lager yeast, some grassy hops. Sweet caramel malt taste, some straw. Reminds me more of a Vienna style than a Märzen. I would drink this beer all day long as the leaves change to Fall.

dnstone (2350) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 7, 2011
Lightly malty aroma. Golden in color with off-white head. A clean oktoberfest-style beer. Pretty standard oktoberfest.

Ungstrup (29992) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2011
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as a lighter note of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and straw.

Beautiful copper pour with no head or carbonation. Very little flavor and leaves an aftertaste of dirty socks. These guys need to step up their game.

bottle. clear pale orange white small head. the typical nose for the style: light toasted malt with a floral stamp. flavor is, again, malty but the noble hops add a good limey zing to the finish. a very "pilsy" oktoberfest. light to medium body and smooth. a lighter but tasty version of the style.

Velkyal (308) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Pours a beautiful radiant amber topped with a foamy white head which lingers nicely. The aroma is toasted grains, some hay and herbs. Tastewise, juicy sweet maltiness with a slight toasted edge and toffee combine with a gentle bitterness to make a very drinkable and delicious beer. Medium bodied and moreish!

tnkw01 (1300) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle. Another great beer for Highland. Pours an dark orange-amber-copper color with a decent head and great lace.. Taste is more floral-hops then most marzen style beers. Aroma is a malty, spicy, floral with slight nuts. Good stuff.

adavis234 (286) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours a copper-straw color with a medium off-white head. Flavor is quite good. Good, spiced malts dominate with hints of toasty caramel. Very good for the style, but I’ve always been partial to Highland.
