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!

Nice bit of orange in the aroma with the maltiness. Taste and palate are on the weak side and it doesn’t hit the maltiness that a Marzen should be getting at in my opinion. Fun beer to drink though especially for an early go at Marzens.

Ungstrup (30977) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2011
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel as well as a lighter note of alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and straw.

Lightly malty aroma. Golden in color with off-white head. A clean oktoberfest-style beer. Pretty standard oktoberfest.

Found a bottle of this when we were in the OBX visiting. Consumed on 9/22/09. Reviewed from notes. Poured into my pint glass a crystal clear pale orange. Minimal bubbles rising through. 1 inch white head on top. Some retention, little lacing. Smell of earthy dull bitterness mixed some hints of caramel sweetness. The mouth is thin and lacking carbonation on the tongue. Mild flavor on this one. Some sweet caramel, slight bittering hops in the middle. Nothing noteworthy about this one at all. Pretty average, tame, and unoffensive.

Bottles. One of the most boring beer styles out there and everybody and their brother feels like they need to brew one. It’s getting colder which already sucks and then you have to give us this shitty malty beer to make us feel better. This particular marzen aint bad by any means, it just happens to be the object for my rant on marzens. Sorry Highland.

I love Highland brewery, but was highly disappointed in this lager. A transparent golden appearance with little ’oktoberfest’ aroma. Not my favorite seasonal!

12 oz bottle for 2 bucks. Pours clear golden amber with a white head. Looks more like a lager than anything else. Smells a little malty, not much else. Taste is slightly crisp at first, almost grassy with a decent hoppy finish. Body is a little thin, not much carbonation either. Not particularly inspiring but I actually like this more than I thought I would. It’s at least better than Highland’s crappy IPAs.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent golden orange with foamy eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of mild caramel and very soft hops. Tastes like it smells with some biscuit as well. Average on the palate. A decent no-frills example of the style.
