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!

Amber brown pour with a small white head. Aroma is of bisquit and toffee. Medium bodied, nice creamy mouthfeel. More bisquit/bread malt flavors with a bit of sweetness and a slighly cloying aftertaste. Pretty good. Nice body initially but it seems a bit thinner once warmed.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2013
12oz bottle from Sam’s, Durham. Yet another marzen? Alas, yes for the most part. Pour fails to leave much of any impression at all, and the nose is malty and grainy. Prickly mouthfeel, and slightly more hops here than one often encounters in the style, which I guess is a plus. Still boring.

smooth body, light refreshing palate, light complexity but in the finish the light malt character comes thru,l a good sessionable grab, but nothing too special

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle (12oz) -- courtesy of MrFacto. Pours a slightly hazy orange-gold with a quickly diminishing small white head. Mild aroma is bready, malty and fruity. Flavour of malt, slightly toasty and fruity along with very light spicy hops and a light bitter finish -- simple yet pleasant to drink. Average bodied. Nothing great just simply a good beer.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy medium orange color. The head was thin and white. Smelled of hay, subdued noble hops, and sweet cream. Light to medium bodied. Delicately sweet up front with a dryish finish. I tasted hay, bitter earthy leaves, and a hint of toffee.
