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!

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Cary, NC. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin creamy white head. Poor head retention and decent lacing. Aroma of lightly toasted malts, nuts, caramel and faint apricot and other fruits. Taste is lightly toasted grain, floral and fruity notes including notes of plum and peach, some nutty notes and a leafy hoppiness. Medium bodied.

Ughsmash (7126) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Bottled. Poured medium golden with a moderate cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasty caramel and some medium-skinned fruits.. sweet overall with a nice earthy touch on the back of the nose. The flavor found lightly-toasted caramel and pale malt topped by light earth and grainy bitterness.. dry finish.. decent balance. Lighter-bodied, dry, and grainy on the palate.. a little sour at times.. I’d have another.

sebletitje (6646) - 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.

12oz bottle, filled 8/20/13. Clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves some lace. Medium-plus body. Crisp carbonation. Toasty, caramel malts. Light lemon. Moderate bitter, light sweet. Was solid as I swigged it in between bites of sandwich, but on it’s own, it suffers.

blankboy (6030) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle (12oz) -- courtesy of MrFacto. Pours a slightly hazy orange-gold with a quickly diminishing small white head. Mild aroma is bready, malty and fruity. Flavour of malt, slightly toasty and fruity along with very light spicy hops and a light bitter finish -- simple yet pleasant to drink. Average bodied. Nothing great just simply a good beer.

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.
