This Oktoberfest packs all of the autumnal flavors that make October the best time of the year, while having the smoothness of a lager to allow for a surprisingly delicious, refreshing treat. Patrickctenchi (6811) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Cloudy, amber-brown with a short tan head.
Scent is caramel and bread.
Taste is a mild, sweet, slightly spiced bread....
Malt and Caramel.....
Nice hop notes at the finish....
Simple, but very good. drowland (9186) - Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2013
10/4/13. On tap at Bleu Cafe. My first rating on the new Windows app! Mild aroma, light malts, a hint of toffee and fruitiness. Flavor follows, lightly sweet, toasty. Meh Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Drank from a bottle.This beer has a light to medium body with a hop note but more a carmel flavor.

Clear amber. Nice nutty malt. Slightly acidic finish that I wish was a little less aggressive. woodychevy (874) - - SEP 2, 2014
A bit blah. Looked way better than it tasted. Pours a really nice color for a lager- clear amber with nice white head. Nuttiness and malt on the nose- same on palate with the addition of a bitter finish. About the right mouthfeel for a lager- feels more summer-y than an octoberfest beer should. Just not that much to it- want a bit more barley and hops and a bit less water in my brews.

Highland Clawhammer Oktoberfest is not the best in style, but it is not bad for a sessionable seasonal. Light malty aroma with light sweetness rising from an orange translucent pour with a head that fades too quickly. Taste is well balanced and not real bold with a light sweetness, malt notes and little spice. Clawhammer is a session beer that goes well with food, but not real special sample of the season.

Poured from bottle. Good aroma of sweet bread and citrus. Cloudy amber with a bit of head. Tasting brown sugar with malt and citrus/pear flavors. Also some cinnamon and spice. Kinda different - not bad. HourGlass13 (1101) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2017
Clear orange amber colored pour. Medium off-white head. Leaves some nice lace. Medium-plus body. Clean mild aroma. Crisp carbonation. Toasty, caramel malts in the taste. Moderate bitter, light sweet. Was solid.
