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!

Bottle. Clear amber/orange pour with minimal head. Aroma is fruity; hints of orange, sweet corn, minor other citrus notes as well as caramel and toffee. Smells inviting and refreshing... and the taste confirms it. Light-bodied with minor hop notes, sweet malt and a touch of spice. I think it’s pretty true to what I think of the style, and I could drink this all autumn long. Another good brew from this high-quality Asheville brewery.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2008
2008 Knoxville Brewers’ Jam. Pours orange with white head. The aroma is grain, fruit, and distinct Munich malt. The flavor is toasty with some leaves and light caramel, and a little bit of hay in the finish. Not too shabby.

Bottle from Daniel. Drank this one while watching our 70 - 24 ass kicking festival from another championship year of ASU football. Orange color, with a white head. Smell is fruity, malty, sweet, and not really many hops to take note of. Taste is lively carbonation, with some fruit notes as well. There isnt alot going on here, its just easy to drink and smooth. Thats about it. Not really a good beer, but not a terrible one either.
