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!

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.

1. Look - A medium light hazy golden lager with an average head. 2. Sniff – A somewhat malty and metallic aroma. 3. Sip – This is a very sweet tasting lager. It has a very soft bitterness and a smooth finish. 4. Another Look – There is no head or lacing after a few sips. 5. Evaluate – Overall, this is a sweet lager influenced by the Oktoberfest style. It has a somewhat metallic finish, but also pack a lot of alcohol. I probably wouldn’t recommend this lager to family and friends.

Nose is of toasted nuts, some darker fruits, caramel, and light oak notes which i initially thought was hops but now realize that this is oak aged. Interestring. Pours bright golden orange amber with no head or lace. Almost looks like iced tea. The flavor is moderately sweet with notes of toasted nuts and bread, caramel, darker fruits, a touch of wood, a touch of earthy dryness as well. Smooth with moderate carbonation. Interesting.

Wow... maybe im just bias but does Two Brothers make any bad brews. This one did not disappoint. Almost clear copper color with a 1/2 inch head. It has a mix of a sweet and sour smell. But the taste is the kicker. No caramel flavor or sweet sugary taste like some Oktoberfest, but it still has a strong Marzen flavor. This is a nice fall treat and the 7.7% abv is enough to warm you up on the chilly fall nights.... Booyaa

Aroma: Light on the aroma. I get oak, and caramel sweetness. Appearance: Murky orange. Head pours slightly off white and retreats quickly to the sides. Taste: Some traditional Oktoberfest flavors are balanced by the oak. Not convinced the style is at its strongest from oak barrels but it’s certainly unique. The oak keeps it from becoming too overpowering much like in a drier chardonnay. The ABV of 7.7% is a surprise: tastes not a molecule over 5%. Palate: moderately carbonated and full bodied. A bit oily with a short finish. Overall: Not a traditional Oktoberfest, but interesting. I just wish the aromas and flavors played out a bit stronger.

Have not been overly impressed with two brothers but this is one of the better efforts. I think marzens tend to run together so i enjoyed the oak aging.

A great local version of an Oktoberfest classic. Locally brewed by Two Bros. They nailed this one! damayor---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
