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!

Copper with light, beige, head / Sweet nose of spun sugar and malt / Medium body, malty and sweet, cloying, very low carbonation and hopping / Flavors of spun sugar and cooked fruit / Not true to the style, and ignoring that, not a very good beer.

Quasimodo (217) - chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2011 The faint aroma is a tad boozy and malty. The taste is pleasantly boozy, with malt, caramel, honey and oak. Pours almost flat. Not much bitterness. Not quite as robust as I’d like for an Oktoberfest beer. I’d like this better with more carbonation and a bit more grain gusto. The more I drink, the better it tastes.

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Cubes comes through again. Deep copper body. Head hard to judge based on plastic cup. Aroma of sweet, toasty malt and grape-ish fruit. Bread crust flavor along with light toffee. Low hop flavor. Medium body with low-moderate carbonation. Malt forward with a lightly sweet finish. Overall pretty good, but now wowing. Somewhat too sweet and could use more balance.

nuplastikk (4321) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2011
On tap at Revolution. Orange-brown color. Thin, steady head. Malty and rich. Very well done, manages to "imperialize" the style with getting sloppy or going overboard. Smooth caramel and doughy malt tones. Minimal to no hop tones. A great beer.

bhiner41 (180) - La Grange, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2011
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.

Braudog (5623) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2011
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)

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 26, 2010
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.
