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!

nuplastikk (4917) - 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.

Aurelius (4576) - 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.

drfabulous (4543) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Draught at Dragon Kings Daughter in New Albany. Amber color. Caramel and toffee and a fairly amber taste. Lots of amber in this marzen.

Patrickctenchi (4538) - 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.

cheap (4444) - 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.

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.

nick76 (4302) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2015
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.

AirForceHops (4077) - 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.

Bamsen78 (3955) - 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.

Cloudy orange draft with nice tight white head. Not much aroma. Malty and bready flavors. Some estery fruits. Odd but drinkable.
