COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a little tip of the hat to our scientific, pioneering neighbors we created the innovative atom smasher limited run artisan beer. A heft, full-bodied lager reminiscent of Marzen beers from days gone by. However, this beer is aged in our oak foudres to add a complexity unmatched by the imported version of Oktoberfest beers today. Just add Ledersosen!

Finhead (1189) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Clear, amber pour with a thin off-white head. The aroma is a little earthy, but it has some sugary candy notes. It has a medium body with slick texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with some alcohol in the finish.

Ericular (622) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a nice amber with lasting pillowy head and great chunky lacing. Aroma is woody, caramel, richer than most of the style. Taste is similar, thicker and creamier with mild oak tannin, caramel, wheat bread, sweet malts but heavy enough to avoid cloying. The aging gives this a mild sweet barleywine feel, which could be good or bad depending on expectations. Overall this is an interesting, unique fall beer. Too sticky and undercarbonated for the style though.

AmericanHobo (46) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2014
A nice Marxen aroma on inital pour and initial taste doesn’t disappoint with characteristic Oktoberfest flavor. However finish is a bit unbalanced as oak aging over powers the palate and get more of a creamy tanin finish than is enjoyable

Draught at Dragon Kings Daughter in New Albany. Amber color. Caramel and toffee and a fairly amber taste. Lots of amber in this marzen.

TattooJack (98) - Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Poured from the bottle of a six pack into a pint glass. This beer tastes every bit as strong as it is, nothing is hidden. Some bitter, a lot of sweet, and big alcohol content. I’m always looking for beer which is strong and doesn’t taste like dog sh*t, It’s too bad I’ll have to wait till next year for this one to come around again.

PorterPounder (5572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, quickly diminishing light off-white head. Pleasant light spicy aroma, hints of nutmeg, a trace of date fruitiness. Flavor is pleasantly sweet with some light molasses, a hint of date fruitiness, just a hint of nutmeg-like spiciness. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it,

Aurelius (4199) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Standard 12 oz longneck. OK label. Dull, medium brown beer with a foamy white head. Somewhat stale cereal malt aroma with some faint perfume-florality. Lightly sweet, nutty, cereal, toasty, woody notes. Woody astringency at times. Slippery mouthfeel, good effervescence. Nicely bitter finish. New Leaf Market.
