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!

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.

Pretty solid marzen. Copper colored. Sweet caramel and toffee aroma. Some spicy hops come through in taste, but dominated but sweet and bready malts. Easy drinking.

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

Bottle in trade from ROBORB. Thanks man. Pours an orange amber color with a light beige head. Smell is slightly dusty and earthy hops. Not malty in the way I would expect and almost is like its spiced or bretty and lightly funky. Taste is lightly hoppy with a biscuity dusty malt to it and some definite but light tartness and lager yeast flavor. Some lingering sweetness in the end. Medium to thin body and normal carbonation. A bit strange.

blankboy (6263) - 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.

On tap at Coasters. Copper pour with a very thin white head. Aroma of light caramel malt and soap. Toffee and caramel sweetness as well as light floral hops. Slightly bitter aftertaste, although nothing unpleasant. Not really one of my favorite styles but good for what it is.

Bottle… Clear amber lager with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Biscuity, caramelized, toffee nose with a hint of acetaldehyde. Medium-bodied with tingly carbonation. Well-balanced. Malty caramel sweetness balanced by spicy hop bitterness. Crisp, lightly bitter finish.
