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!

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.

JPDIPSO (5588) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Tan with a hint of copper in color. Somewhat fluffy light khaki head. Fairly weak head. I catch hints of toasted malt and sour mash and a wisp of noble hops, but not enough to make me take notice. Starts sweet with toasted malt and caramel notes. Hints of oak and floral hops. Pleasing in a sweet marzen way. A bit more toasted malt and tone down the caramel and floral notes and this one is golden. 10/14

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bomber from the Orland Park, IL, Binny’s: This poured a bright orange body with a modest head that vanished when I left the room for a few moments. The aroma was sweet with toasty malt and a touch of orchard fruit balanced by a bit of oak and a whiff of alcohol. The flavor was much like the nose, only the alcohol became a bit more evident, really not blending well. It finshed on a woody, dry bitterness and left a taste of alcohol in the mouth.

kaser (5567) - 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

EithCubes (5555) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Bomber before the Zips game, and my fourth of the day, so take this rating for what it’s worth. Lovely nose, Munich malt and caramel. Pours fiery orange with a beige sudsy head. Taste is overly sweet. Thin-medium body, well-hidden alcohol. Nothing but malt, which is fine for style. Really, really good malt, but in the end, a little too sweet/unbalanced. Still, yummy, want more!

cheap (5260) - 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.

JStax (5093) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Clear copper with a white head. Aroma has mild spice with cotton candy sweetness. Taste is nmore sweet than anything. Alright overall. Medium carbonation and body.

Aurelius (5032) - 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.

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.
