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!

TattooJack (92) - 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 (5542) - 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 (4176) - 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.

kaser (2700) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Slight fruits and mild pumkin and malty flavor to this. Rather bland but not offensive. Butterscotch and sweet. 12oz bottle pour at home - amber color with barely any white head

wxman (1427) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Pours a clear golden amber with a full white head that laces the glass. Aroma is caramel and spices. Taste is sweet caramel malt, butterscotch, biscuits and just the right amount of hop bitterness to balance. Top drawer Oktoberfest.

crossovert (7389) - Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2014
355ml bottle. Darj amber pour, nice cramy off-white/cream colored head. Aroma is heavy noble hops, and a bit of oak, malt well covered by the two imo.The flavor is sharp and bitter, not much mid palate. Some creaminess, some caramel/soy. Maybe my palate is fucked up but not getting much complexity here. And interesting htat the oak aged oktos are among the hoppiest, perhaps they are thinking the hops will wear out during hte aging but they don’t.

Draft at the growler stone street NYC . Pours a bright bronze golden color with a malty interesting backbone. Not bad
