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!

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.

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.

Bottle. Orange with a thin tan head. Toffee, alcohol, wheat, and bread. Flavor is lightly sweet. Lighter body with a watery feel.

Ericular (953) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours a nice amber with lasting pillowy head and great chunky lacing. Aroma is woody, caramel, richer than most of the style. Taste is similar, thicker and creamier with mild oak tannin, caramel, wheat bread, sweet malts but heavy enough to avoid cloying. The aging gives this a mild sweet barleywine feel, which could be good or bad depending on expectations. Overall this is an interesting, unique fall beer. Too sticky and undercarbonated for the style though.

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

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a cervoise goblet. A: Pours a very hazy dark amber with some lighter hues where the light hits around the edges. Off white head that dissipates into nothing. S: Malty with a little musty yeast smell. Dull orange zest. T: Taste follows the nose. Toasted malts with some dull zest. Pretty typical Marzen flavors. M: Clean. Little dry finish. Medium bodied. O: Not my favorite of the style. It was pretty average across the board. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-18-2011

Body is solid on this one and refreshing at the same time. It’s slightly spicy, but low on the hops. Most of the flavor comes from the malts and the yeast.
