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!

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.

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.

BrettTaylor (638) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Poured from bottle into shaker. Pours a very light orange with a 2 finger head. Head dissipates to a thin skim fairly quickly. Aroma - light aroma, but malt and spicy hops present. Taste is very malty, no real hop character. One note really, lots of caramel and toffee notes.

UDBeernut (2182) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Brown pour with minimal head. Toast, malt, bread, caramel. Generally sweet. Big body, slam able. Everything a marzen should be.

BadAprilia1000 (378) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Pours a crystal clear autumn color with a decent head which dissipates fairly quick. Aroma is a rich malt note with some weak caramelized brown sugar or molasses. Taste is malty, bready, almost a weak holiday spice note from the carbonation playing on the tongue. Overall a great drinkable beer, killed my whole first one in about 5 minutes.

Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
