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!

Atom (2100) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2015
12oz bottle pours a clear Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of faint mildly sweet caramel malt, fruity, and a light spice. Taste of caramel malts, fruity hops and yeast, there is a bitterness and spice on the finish I’m not digging.

TH28 (344) - - SEP 6, 2015
12oz bottle. 1/11/16 BB date. Appearance: Crystal clear dark copper/amber, with a low, slightly off white foam head. Aroma: Lightly toasted malt with some herbal hop notes. Touch of light caramel and vanilla. Taste: Rich toasted and caramel malt sweetness, with well balanced, but not strong herbal bitterness. Almond noticeable on the back end. Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Slight hint of alcohol on the swallow. Finish: Well balanced bitterness, but this is malt forward with some lingering toast. Some alcohol and almond stick around as well. Overall: A solid Marzen, still very drinkable considering the elevated ABV. Oak aging adds little character, but I do pick up a touch of almond. Nice on a cool evening.

I have tried this one a few years in a row. I’m a fan of Marzen style and every year I have my fill of the traditional German Marzens. This one has a different spin on style. A full bodied malt. The flavors of the oak aging are there. The abv. is upped to almost imperial levels. Bready and caramel malts are the main focus here.

12 oz. bottle into pint glass. Pours clear amber with thin off white head. Aroma, malty. Flavor, toasted grains. Not a favorite.

Somewhat interesting and nice. Refreshing, not hoppy which is correct. Nice aroma and features.

Weevo (139) - Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Bottle, pours orange Amber with thin white head. Fruity notes and a touch of Carmel and oak in the background. Taste of some herbal hops round this out to make it a nice full-bodied beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nick76 (4368) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2015
UPDATED: APR 9, 2016 The aroma is malty and slightly yeasty with light hops. The appearance is light amber. The taste is like the aroma with a touch of cardboard. The palate is typical. Overall it?s good.

superspak (4400) - Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2015
12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, best before 1/13/2015. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light oak, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and light oak notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light oak, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light earthy herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, light oak, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malts, earthy hop, and light oak flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors as well with minimal esters present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Oktoberfest style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and light oak flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

cheap (5152) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2014
From a bottle has a slight volatile malt aroma. Strong initially but not as strong as 8% may indicate. But yet, a strong malty thing, not sure if this is marzen or not but its malty fer sure. Getting used to it as the session continues. Decent co2 but not lots. Yes, got used to this one. End is a mid kick in the head.

Pours a clear copper color with minimal head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, and hops. Mostly caramel and toasted malt flavor with some hops. Decent beer.
