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!

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear rich copper with a one finger off-white head. Average head retention and lacing. A really nice aroma. Biscuit and toasted malt along with a little bit of candy. Also some earthyness and grassy hops. Flavor takes off with biscuit malt and some candy sweetness. Toffee and caramel is there along with a little bit of coffee. A little bit of wet hay along with a light bitterness. Finish is a bit on the sticky side but clean overall. A decent Oktoberfest but not a whole lot that makes it stand out above the rest. I do like the extra bit of toast and biscuit in this one, though, and it is worth picking up.

magsinva (879) - Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2011
bottle - bruisin ales - pours a clear yellow-orange with a thin head and some carbonation. Aroma is lemon, ginger, and pine. Taste is mildly bitter with the citrus notes coming through at the end. The palate is light and refreshing, finishes clean. Overall, a little light for a marzen, but delicious none the same.

Poured from the tap to a bright reddish orange with thin off white head and slight lacing throughout the glass. Aroma was a faint fruity (orange and apples) with a backdrop of spices and cookie dough. Mouthfeel was medium bodied nd slightly tingly, and the flavor brought out more of the doguh and spicy fruits. Finish slightly spicy and refreshing. Not bad.

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.

Bottle—Nice light amber, almost orange coloring with a medium size head. The aroma was the dominate malty smell you expect from an Oktoberfest beer. At times, the beer could be a bit thin, however, beer “thickens’ as it warms. Lots of wonderful maltiness leads out followed by some biscuit flavor, but the surprise was the nice balance of hops at the end of the drink. Nice. Ingles.

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.

Its October, so I thought I might get my Oktoberfest tick on. This beer was not the place to start. Poured a too pale golden with barely-there white head. Scent was reminiscent of classic american light lager. Malty front end wasn’t very strong and hop bite was nearly non-existent. Meh. Draft - Taco Mac Lindbergh - Atlanta, GA

From a 12oz bottle this beer pours an orange copper with a white head. Aroma of malt, citrus and grain - I did not detect that typical smell from a lot of the Octoberfests out there. This one came off a little different to me and I liked it. Nice clean, hop, malt and caramel taste. Good finish. A lot of the Octoberfests I have had I could only drink 1 or 2 of but I could make this one a nice session beer.
