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!

Typical marzen. Heavy on the malts and slightly sweet. The oak aging does give it just a hint of something special, but not enough to make it awesome. Overall, it’s just ok.

Traded bottle (almost bought this at JJ’s too). Pretty nice fest beer overall. Pretty sweet malt forward and then finishes with a light hop bitterness. Fine with me.

frpilz (111) - Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Clear copper color, poured into dimpled mug, decent beige head but didnt last long. Hardly any aroma, feint cereal, malt, and hay scents. Flavor is very good, crisp dry entry then a malty finish, very little hops. Toffee, toast, caramel, and a bit of grassy flavors. The oak barrel thing they did creates a sensation of alchohol burn and wasnt neccessary or pleasent. Distracted the mellow smooth chugable Oktoberfest into a harsh smokey burn. Nice try and cudos to trying something new, but this did not work here, better to use oak barrels with a stout or double ipa. Medium mouthfeel had a creamy smooth feel until the bun crowded it out.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a cervoise goblet. A: Pours a very hazy dark amber with some lighter hues where the light hits around the edges. Off white head that dissipates into nothing. S: Malty with a little musty yeast smell. Dull orange zest. T: Taste follows the nose. Toasted malts with some dull zest. Pretty typical Marzen flavors. M: Clean. Little dry finish. Medium bodied. O: Not my favorite of the style. It was pretty average across the board. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-18-2011

Crisp, refreshing Oktoberfest lager. Slight skunky flavor. Taste is similar to a Heineken.

shrubber85 (9464) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle. Light honey and barley malt aroma. Amber with large off-white head. Sweet corn-syrup, toffee malt and mildly bitter herbal hops flavor. Okay - on the sweet and hoppy side.

Thechasm442 (430) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2012 Fresh bottle to a three floyds pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a thin off white head and little lacing. Aroma is malts, caramel, grains, wood, and typical oktobefest spices. Taste is malty up front and rather sweet. Roasted malts, dark fruit, brown sugar, wood, and light smoke. Medium to thin mouthfeel and easy to drink. Decent oktoberfest.
