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!

This draft brew poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated hazy light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was mild malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The strange flavor gave me an initial response of its bad due to the sour off tasting sour malt oak backing. A horrible one that I would rather not drink again. Drain poured.

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.

Picked this up at Crown Liquor #19 in Caramel, Indiana. Well, Amyliz4 picked this up. Served in a snifter. Pours a medium copper color with a thin head that recedes quickly. Some spotty lacing. The nose brings forward plenty of bread and a light bit of caramel. Faint hops. The flavor is okay, having too much of a grain character with slight tannins and a mild tartness. Light body with bread crust and modest carbonation. Decent enough, but not something I would revisit.

Aurelius (4781) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Standard 12 oz longneck. OK label. Dull, medium brown beer with a foamy white head. Somewhat stale cereal malt aroma with some faint perfume-florality. Lightly sweet, nutty, cereal, toasty, woody notes. Woody astringency at times. Slippery mouthfeel, good effervescence. Nicely bitter finish. New Leaf Market.

cheap (4756) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2014
From a bottle has a slight volatile malt aroma. Strong initially but not as strong as 8% may indicate. But yet, a strong malty thing, not sure if this is marzen or not but its malty fer sure. Getting used to it as the session continues. Decent co2 but not lots. Yes, got used to this one. End is a mid kick in the head.

kaser (4648) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Slight fruits and mild pumkin and malty flavor to this. Rather bland but not offensive. Butterscotch and sweet. 12oz bottle pour at home - amber color with barely any white head

Bamsen78 (4606) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2013
Draught @ The Ginger Man, NYC. Pours clear amber with airy white head. Clear aroma of hops with touches of caramel malt. Bitter, dusty and grainy flavour with notes of raw malt. Rough aftertaste. More interesting than good.

The aroma is malty and slightly yeasty with light hops. The appearance is light amber. The taste is like the aroma with a touch of cardboard. The palate is typical. Overall it’s good.
