12 ounce bottle. Please let me find, one day, an Oktoberfest/Marzen that’s better than mediocre. Atom Smasher isn’t it, although at least the higher than average abv helps set it apart by one metric. Appearance - clear amber, no bubbles, no foam. Aroma - sweet like High Life. Taste - Sweet, metallic. Palate - medium bodied, heavy fizz. Overall - Another bland Oktoberfest. Also, I was curious what are these oak "foudres" they mention in the description, other than the French word for lightning. As you can probably guess from context, they’re giant wooden barrels. I’m still confused how French-oriented barrels, German-based Oktoberfest beer and Fermilab all fit together though.

On tap. Copper in color. Very light aroma. Flavor is caramel and light fruitiness, with a slightly bitter finish. Fairly enjoyable for its style.

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.

Two Brothers Atom Smasher is an Oktoberfest with a twist. Nice orange-copper pour with a fluffy white head. Maybe a slight malty aroma. Taste is surprisely hoppy for this style -- kind of like pale ale meets Oktoberfest. There is a heavy malt on the swallow resulting in somewhat of an aftertaste. Atom Smasher is a nice departure from the typical seasonal fare.

Copper, no head. Aroma is sour green grape. Sour taste starting out, gets a bit maltier, then finishes quickly with a lot of booze. No carbonation to this, and the flavor is all over the place, not representative at all of the style. Alcohol too heavy.

Tasted from a 12 ounce bottle. Poured a clear amber with a quickly dissipating white head. A solid Oktoberfest style lager. I found this in the back of my fridge. I wonder if it would've rated higher if I had rated one when I first bought them.
