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 from trio. Pours clear Amber with a medium sized off white head. The aroma has your typical sweet esters for the style with some toasted malt and caramel notes. A slight spice from the hops. The taste has a spicy hops presence over a sweet brew. Not bad

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 9, 2008
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.

Bottle poured into glass. Nice spice hop aroma with hints of toasted bread. Flavor is malty but not overly sweet. Well balanced and easy to drink.

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.

fluffy (2357) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2009
pours dark reddish brown with a thin head. some breadiness in the aroma and a bit of maltiness. flavor is more hoppy than i expected, which is predictable coming from Highland Brewing. notes of roasted grains, toffee and butteriness. fairly clean finish. good, not great.

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.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Honey malts, biscuity, spicy hops on the nose. Pours amber gold with a thin white head. Very smooth and malty, biscuity, with spicy grassy hops in the flavor. Very mild, but very drinkable.

Not much flavor or nose. Horrible Octoberfest. Not very malty not very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of dkachur. Pours a clear dark gold with a 2 finger foamy beige head with ok lacing. The nose is fruity with malt, grain and faint hops. The taste is light honey, malt, grain and citrus zest. Medium bodied. Decent Marzen – thanks Dan!

tmongoose (2219) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 18, 2014
12oz bottle pours a murky orange color with a quickly dissipating white head. the aroma is of malts, semi sweet with some touches of hops is the best I can come up with. the flavor is malt forward with some mild bitterness in the middle and on the end. pleasant tasting for this style of beer. seems like mild breadiness in there as well...almost an orange taste but I could be wrong. overall decent and drinkable.
