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!

Draught at Dragon Kings Daughter in New Albany. Amber color. Caramel and toffee and a fairly amber taste. Lots of amber in this marzen.

Braudog (6284) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 24, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark amber or light mahogany with an initially thick but quickly disappearing head. The aroma is of sweet malt. Indeed, the beer drinks with a distinct sweet tartness, appley, and almost puckery. Different for an O-fest. (#4063, 1/24/2011)

Mora2000 (6154) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Thanks to Exiled for sharing this bottle. The beer pours an orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is fairly one-dimensional and is dominated by toffee from the malt. The flavor is toffee and grassy/earthy hops with a tad bit of smoke mixed in. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

riversideAK (6098) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2010
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.

AirForceHops (6067) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 11, 2013
12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. Dimpled mug displays a cloudy amber color with a thick soapy white head. Aromas has notes of straw, malt, and a bit of minerals. The flavor is toffee and earthy hops with a slick/ oily texture. The label reads “aged in oak foudres” Well, I don’t smell or taste oak. I do taste the alcohol notes after the sip. When I read oak on a label, I want to taste it. I was excited for this but it leaves me flat.

thirdeye11 (6043) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2010
(22oz bottle thanks to Exiled) clear rich copper with nose of grass, rhubarb, melon. Taste of rye, light orange, sweet bread, caramel and lightly carbonated body.

Patrickctenchi (5943) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pours nearly clear, copper-brown. with a solid, off-white head.... Scent is a tacky-sweet, caramel... a bit sickly. Taste is heavy caramel with a bitter presence.... Alcohol is noticeable, .... a bit of spice and raisins., Not a typical Oktoberfest......active and bright. Just barely too sweet, though... otherwise, it’s a fabulous little beer.

nuplastikk (5742) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2011
On tap at Revolution. Orange-brown color. Thin, steady head. Malty and rich. Very well done, manages to "imperialize" the style with getting sloppy or going overboard. Smooth caramel and doughy malt tones. Minimal to no hop tones. A great beer.

Aroma is caramel, mild/medium nuttiness and slightly musty. The flavor is toffee, light caramel, mild/medium sweetness, light fruit and a slightly bitter/tart finish.
