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!

Smells like s funky barley, almost like a sour. Appearence is murky brown, cloudy and hazy. Taste is like a sour marzen, lost of sweet barley. Nothing special in the flavor, no aftertaste. Nice take on a German beer but the German’s still do it best.

Amber pour. The nose has a little bit of light chewy fruitiness. Dried berries and a little bit of tobacco. Fairly rich and a little bit chewy as well. Fairly estery with some lingering toastiness. Lean and bready with some astringent bitterness.

Bottle. Poured a dark amber or light mahogany with an initially thick but quickly disappearing head. The aroma is of sweet malt. Indeed, the beer drinks with a distinct sweet tartness, appley, and almost puckery. Different for an O-fest. (#4063, 1/24/2011)

Pours a transparent deep copper amber with a clingy-lacing off-white head. Has a semisweet toasty caramel malty nose with some earthy noble hops and a hint of light citric tartness. Starts with pretty good fullness and chewy authentic caramel maltiness and pretty good bittering hoppy balance. A pretty true to style festbier but would be better without the hints of tartness.

(22oz bottle thanks to Exiled) Bright orange. Sweet malt, honey, floral- roses. Tastes pretty sweet, could use more hops. Not a lot of strong flavor- could also use some more strength.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 1, 2010
(22oz bottle, courtesy of Exiled) Pours a lightly hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Aroma of cooked ham with sugary ketchup, caramel, and nuts. Flavor of orange, toasted grain, oak, and caramel.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Draught at Small Bar Fullerton. Hazy dark amber color. Lots of sweet malt in the aroma, some herbal hops, and a light woodiness. Sweet flavor with an oaky touch and a big bready maltiness. Lightly hopped. Full and smooth in the mouth. A bit too sweet overall. some more intense hopping and I can see this going somewhere.

On tap at the Barley House in Algonquin. "Thick" for a lager, with velvety style malt that comes through in waves, with just the beginning of toast as you would expect from a Marzen. Hops in the distant background as you would expect. Due to the thicker body, I would only drink 2 in a session.

From notes. Tasted from bomber bottle at Lush West Town. Pours clear amber orange with a thin white head that leaves a very thin collar. The nose is fairly non-descript with a hint of malts and spices peeking through. The flavors are mostly malt with some sweetness and a hint of bitterness. The body is medium plus with light carbonation and a medium sweet and malty finish.
