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!

Solid Oktoberfest. Pours a bright copper, big white head. Caramel and bread dough flavors, just a bit of hop at the end. Pretty straightforward.

Draft at World Of Beer in Land O Lakes. Clear amber pour with a foamy white head. Roasted caramel malt aroma and flavor with some lingering spices. Decent but far from exciting.

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

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.

Not as huge in the flavor dept, but very creamy and smooth. A solid highland offering, however not in my top tier of Ofests. I do always like to support NC breweries, though, so I’ll probably buy again.

Amber brown pour with a small white head. Aroma is of bisquit and toffee. Medium bodied, nice creamy mouthfeel. More bisquit/bread malt flavors with a bit of sweetness and a slighly cloying aftertaste. Pretty good. Nice body initially but it seems a bit thinner once warmed.

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.
