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. Translucent dark amber with a tall, frothy tan head. Aroma is caramel, toasted malt, and light spicy hops. Big caramel and sweet malt up front with spicy hops, toffee and toasted malt following. Body is medium and slightly chewy with a moderate, bubbly carbonation.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 5, 2008
12 oz bottle. small fizzy tan head (quickly and almost fully dissapated) into copper body. aromas of light caramel, light hops, and some corn (done in a good way). flavor is initially bittersweet and finishes more bitter with a little less sweet. dry texture. long finish duration. lively carbonation. one of the better ones of this style.

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.

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.

Strykzone (5816) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Thanks OldGrowth. Looks like tea with lots o honey in it. Light orange brown, clear, with almost no head. Aroma is spice with cinnamon, applesauce, nutty malt, and floral hop. An interesting Oktoerfest. It is musty and spicy with a bitterness that comes in waves after the sip. Flavor also offers spices and a nice hop bite. Pepper, nutmeg, nuts, cinnamon, wood, and apple are all tasted. Finish is sweet. Feel is effervescent. A nice beer with a a variety of flavors and a bit of attitude.

Not as huge in the flavor dept, but very creamy and smooth. A solid highland offering, however not in my top tier of Ofests. I do always like to support NC breweries, though, so I’ll probably buy again.
