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!

A-pours a light golden amber color, completely transparent with a thin off white head. S-sweet caramel malts up front as an earthy bready malt takes over, notes of metallic phenol lie in front of a spicy herbal hop character. T-caramel and bready malts, thick malt body up front, phenols stronger in the taste, a little metallic, crisp spicy herbal hops with light bitterness in the finish. M-medium to full body, thick and slightly stick malt body are rather present with a crisp semi dry finish. D-relatively drinkable with bold malt flavors and well balanced hop presence. good feel to it with a hint of phenol that does seem to detract from the overall taste and aroma.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of sincereNC. Clear pale amber with a rough off-white head. Sweet malty nose, a very clean maltiness. Medium body, intensely malty sweet but never sticky. A little flowery hops but hardly any bitterness. Nice and close to style. 150311

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 25, 2011
A golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and caramel. The flavor is oddly hoppy with some lemons and pine. Ofest my arse. If I rated on style Id tan this but I don’t so Ill say this is a pretty good session apa.

magsinva (879) - Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2011
bottle - bruisin ales - pours a clear yellow-orange with a thin head and some carbonation. Aroma is lemon, ginger, and pine. Taste is mildly bitter with the citrus notes coming through at the end. The palate is light and refreshing, finishes clean. Overall, a little light for a marzen, but delicious none the same.

Aurelius (4236) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bright, light cherry gold. Clear. Rich red ale flavors, thought this was an alt or something, but hard to place as a marzen. Sweet, but not too sweet, apricot flavors. Light body, creamy mouthfeel. Enjoyable. On tap, Liberty Taproom, Columbia.
