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!

ross (2125) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - NOV 1, 2008
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.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2010
A nice brew from Blue Lou from one of my favorite breweries out of Asheville. Beautiful city, beautiful people, beautiful beer. Pours a clear, bright amber colour with a finger sized head. It’s quick to dissipate but leaves behind a generous amount of lacing. And actually holds pretty nice retention with the foam. Aroma is nice. Soft hops with roasted malts and a little burnt toast. Taste is pleasent, with flavours of fruit and grass and other woodsy things. A pretty tasty beer all around.

bubbleflubber (2042) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Pours orange-amber into the glass, with a fully diminished eggshell head that leaves trace lace. Aromas of malts and a processed candy effervescence. Sweet malt upfront, with some bock-like yeast in the mid-palate. The finish is an almost null semi-sour old stock yeast. A unilateral mouthfeel leads into a semi-thin body and lands slightly flat on the palate. For a Märzen, it’s not bad, just not a super complex offering, and is somewhat forgettable.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Pours a nice copper color with a an off white head. Aroma is caramel, grain, toast, biscuit, and some spicy hops. Flavor is caramel, toast, biscuit, grain, and a bitter spicy finish.

shadey (1996) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 26, 2013
12oz bottle. Bright orange color with only the slightest ring of tiny white bubbles. Aroma is lightly sweet and a little spicy. Actually really tastey.

fluffy (1947) - 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.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Sampled at the 2008 Knoxville Brewers’ Jam. Orange in the glass with a thin white ring for a head. Caramel malts in the aroma. The flavor finds a mix of grains and caramel. Medium plus body and sweet upfront with a slight bitter ending.
