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!

Pours red orange and crystal clear with almost no head. Aroma is semi sweet malt and caramel, with a slight raisin character. Taste is oaky up front, with a caramel malt backbone, finishing like toffee. I like this a lot actually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jow (3517) - New York, USA - OCT 19, 2016
I’ve really been going after the oktoberfests this season. Fine copper pour very little head. Nose is oak and light caramel. Tastes of old caramel, biscuits, hay, cardboard, herbal, flannel shirt and oak. Dry and slightly boozy but I kind of dig it.

Satyroneto (322) - BRAZIL - OCT 18, 2016
Cor âmbar, cristalina e com algum brilho; espuma branca de baixas formação e persistência com muito pouco lacing. Aroma de pão doce; em segundo plano, álcool e madeira. Sabor inicial de biscoito com final levemente amargo e picante; retrogosto alcoólico, adstringente e amadeirado persistente. Corpo médio/leve e média/baixa carbonatação.

Oak barrel aged October fest. Oak flavor really hits the palate. Pairs nicely with a good cigar. Nice to have 2 but couldn’t drink more than that.

Bottle. Amber-orangey-gold pour, frothy white head with decent retention. Nose is caramel, dried grass, candied orange peel, dates. Mouth is relatively sweet, lots of caramel, grass and a subtle bitterness, some orange, warm finish for a märzen.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma of roasted sweet caramel malt, a hint of floral hops and a touch of cream tartar Taste is medium bodied with flavors of sweet caramel malt and floral hops and a touch of fruit. Finish is semi-sweet with a caramel malt and floral hops. A nice Munich style oktoberfest and even has some aging smoothness detected in the finish.

vyvvy (5891) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 3, 2016
It pours bronze with an off white head. The aroma has dry roasted malt, oak and light toffee. It has a medium body with light carbonation. The taste is fairly dry for the style with lots of woodiness, spice, and crusty bread. Good.

tmoreau (3762) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2016
On tap at Ellyn’s in Glen Ellyn, L., dispensed to a house-logoed tulip showing a fairly clear, light mahogany hue, with a finger’s width of off white head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was some dark caramel & dried fruit sweetness, toasted maltiness, with a light but distinct Munich scent. Better than medium bodied, with fair carbonation, and a mild creaminess to the mouthfeel, the taste was as the aroma notes, including a slightly roasted, earthy, and lightly tannic bitterness that lingered, with noticeable alcohol presence. Would have appreciated a dryer, less sweet finish, but a tasty, Marzen "on steroids", nonetheless.

seuinoz (234) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Alcohol taste and smell with this beer. Kind of bready with alcohol lingering within the taste. Sits ok on the palate. Not what I would call a oktoberfest beer,very poor example.

Palidor19 (3168) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2016
A little syrupy, very sweet. Slight nutty, slight spicy. Has a medium palate with a low carbonated beer. Nice beer for a end of day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
