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!

orange color, small off white head, some lace. nose is malty, caramely, yeasty, touch of dry fruit. i found the flavor a bit unbalanced with some notes of bitter fruit. medium bodied, dry finish. a little muddled to my palate, but inoffensive.

Pours a slightly hazy brownish red. Aroma of grain and malt. Malt forward with nutty overtones followed by maple syrup. Then the finish is crisp while the bottom drops out and bitterness is left. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

574deadzone (1379) - North Central, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Pours a hazy orange amber with a khaki head that settles to a ring. Nose involves caramel, spice, oak, resin, light cocoa, apricot, toast, and damp cellar. Pretty sweet flavor, quite bitter. Heavier side of medium bodied, soft carb, syrupy, lightly tingly, with a toasty dry oak bitter finish. Cool version of an octoberfest, nice use of the oak, though this isn’t a mind-blowing beer. It’s just a really nice beer.

Bottle at home. Nose is oddly sweet, metallic, and synthetic. Malty? Flavors are similarly strange. I get a big sweet chemical taste. Light grassy hops. I don’t know, maybe a bad bottle?

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.

scarletfire65 (1336) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour. Aroma of light oak, apples, malt. Full bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. Quite sweet, with yeasty and jammy cooked fruit flavors over a faint oakiness. Slight vanilla. Sweetish finish. Not bad.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle thanks to spudclampdawg. pours medium hazy and amber. Head fades to a typical ring. Nose is sweet rich toasty breads, some light caramels, and a touch of woody tannins. Flavor is again, toasty sweet oak, bread, caramels, sweet malts, rich caramel toffee, Medijm full body. Tasty and flavorful. Medium to moderately full sweetness.

Draught at the Plano Oktoberfest. Pours dark amber with a creamy off-white head. Sweer malty aroma. Nice flavor is dry malty with a light sweetness and rich flavor and feel from the wood aging. Pretty solid, strong Oktoberfest.

Tap at Busters. Pint glass. Pour leans on amber with minimal head. Aroma is pretty malty with some sugar presence too. Taste is strangely unique for an Oktoberfest. The malt is there along with a nearly rye sweetness. Subtle hops. Enjoy the finish. Surprised a little by the quality of this one. Worth a sample smash this time of year.
