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!

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.

this was from draft. poured a nice dark copper color with good a good and foamy head. Nose was pretty good, but dominated by the oak tones on the beer. A more oaked atom smasher on the nose than I remember from last year. This also had tones of malts, blood oranges, and spice tones as well. Solid medium feel but with tones that are still fairly oak dominated. More oranges and malts, but behind some oak tones This was good, but I remembered last year’s to be better than this. It just wasn’t fully working for me and I’m glad I had it off tap rather than paying for a 6 pack

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.

Picked this at at the Long Room in Chicago on draft. Pleasant fruit filled aroma, light head and light amber body. Finishes with a pleasant and suttle tart crispness. I enjoyed it for sure.

Golden orange. Molasses, berry. Bitter upfront, with some subtle sweetness. Light body, quite effervescent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(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.

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.

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