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 draft at O’Malley’s in Sylva, NC. Amber colored with a creamy white head. Nice, full bodied flavor for an Octoberfest/Marzen. Highland again comes through with another tasty seasonal offering. Smooth, silky and full of fall flavor.

Amver pour, thin white head. Light crisp aroma. Body is thin and easy to drink. Flavor is absurdly light. Watery almost.

Bottle from trio. Pours clear Amber with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has your typical sweet esters for the style with some toasted malt and caramel notes. A slight spice from the hops. The taste has a spicy hops presence over a sweet brew. Not bad

Better than old ipas. Caramel, nutty, light hay. Moderately sweet and bready lager without much depth. Kind of decent i suppose.

Highland Clawhammer Oktoberfest is not the best in style, but it is not bad for a sessionable seasonal. Light malty aroma with light sweetness rising from an orange translucent pour with a head that fades too quickly. Taste is well balanced and not real bold with a light sweetness, malt notes and little spice. Clawhammer is a session beer that goes well with food, but not real special sample of the season.

It is good and easy to drink but its nothing special. Still a descent marzen but wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

Bottle gifted from friends. Thanks Mike and Andrea. Aromas are bread, caramel, grass, iron, copper. Pours a rusty orange. Flavor is bready with a metallic twang to it. It’s not offensive but it seems to be the first thing my mind thought of when drinking this. Overall it’s a good brew.

Pretty solid marzen. Copper colored. Sweet caramel and toffee aroma. Some spicy hops come through in taste, but dominated but sweet and bready malts. Easy drinking.
