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!

Clear medium amber with a small head and light streaks of lace. Taste is caramel malt that is, at first, thin and watery, then turns oily before yielding to light carbonation bittering at the finish. Drinkable, but not one of the better examples of the style.

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.

Amber/gold. Off white head. Toasty, biscuity malt and earthy, bitter hops. A bit of an old wood element on the finish. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Drinkable, but unimpressive fest beer.

Brownish pour. typical caramel malt dominate aroma. Flavor is much the same. Nothing special here.

A decent Marzen style brew, I had this from the bottle. Somewhat toasty and rich, with a light amber color. Understated hops. Very drinkable.

Clean and unassuming, Highland’s Oktoberfest entry sticks to the classic profile, but is lacking some of the toasted breadt character that is so appealing to me. Nicely balanced with a lightly bitter and malty aftertaste. A good match for a hearty burger or hot dogs.

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.

12oz bottle-pours a thin white head and gold color. Aroma is grainy/bready, some spice hops, yeast. Taste is sweet grain, secondary spice/metallic hops that seems out of place and clashes. Thanks decaturstevo for picking this out.
