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!

A nice brew from Blue Lou from one of my favorite breweries out of Asheville. Beautiful city, beautiful people, beautiful beer. Pours a clear, bright amber colour with a finger sized head. It’s quick to dissipate but leaves behind a generous amount of lacing. And actually holds pretty nice retention with the foam. Aroma is nice. Soft hops with roasted malts and a little burnt toast. Taste is pleasent, with flavours of fruit and grass and other woodsy things. A pretty tasty beer all around.

Aroma has some yeast and nutty flavor. The appearance is amber gold with medium head. The flavor is semi bitter with some malts. Smooth finish but flavor was so so overall.

Appearance: Pours a clear, orange-amber body with a thin, white head and a few steady streams of carbonation. Smell: Soft, light nose with only mild notes of bread malts, caramel, apple, florals, and spice. Taste: Mild-tasting mixture of crisp grains and bread with a lightly sweet-tasting touch of caramel. Spicy, floral-toned Noble hops with a moderate amount of bitterness. Small hint of fresh orchard fruit arrives late. Dry, lightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation providing for a carbonic bite. Drinkability: It’s an adequate, American-born Oktoberfest. Clawhammer will do in an O-fest pinch, but there’re definitely better to have out there.

Malty, sweet, bready- slight earthy/nuttiness to it. Goes down smooth tho. Pretty darn good, I would down a 750 with glee.

The aroma is malty and a bit nutty with yeast and grassy hops. The appearance is amber gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma with a bitter malty finish. The palate is smooth. Overall this is a decent beer.

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2009
pours amber, off-white head aroma is hoppy, some spices and malts. flavor, caramel malts followed by thin bitter hop profile.Overall finish retains a good amount of sweet caramel, light spices also noted for some bitterness. Enjoyed this one a lot, more on the sweet side and not so much of the over hoppy seasonals out there.

12 ounce bottle thanks to brentk56. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that goes down quickly. The aroma is full of those crisp malts, light banana that smells like Autumn. A easygoing smooth flavor; light hops, sweet malts, light banana. Smooth and nice. I could drink a few liters of this.
