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!

Aurelius (5070) - 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.

Bamsen78 (5034) - 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.

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.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Pours a medium amber with two finger head. Smells of light malt and a touch of wood. Flavors of malt, a little wood, and a touch of fruit.

superspak (4675) - Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2015
12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, best before 1/13/2015. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light oak, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and light oak notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light oak, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light earthy herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, light nuttiness, light oak, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malts, earthy hop, and light oak flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors as well with minimal esters present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Oktoberfest style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt, earthy hops, and light oak flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2016 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.

ads135 (4191) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 4, 2012
A decent Oktoberfest but nothing really special. Dark orange appearance with a decent head. Sweet and malty in the taste and a bit musty in the nose. Tried with Nick and Matt in Chicago in 2012.

Somewhat interesting and nice. Refreshing, not hoppy which is correct. Nice aroma and features.

Nuffield (4065) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 30, 2012
This wasn’t billed to me as a Marzen, but I can see it now that you mention it. I did link this to German styles--I detected a little pork bratwurst spices, herbal and lightly floral. Malty, caramel notes predominate. Drinkable yet dull. Moderately syrupy. (on tap at Happy Gnome, St. Paul)

HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Deep reddish orange hugh with a slight cream colored head. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma of toasted oak, toffee malts, a mild apple juice-like sweetness. A light bread and crackery malt. Flavor is nice, toasty, somewhat dry for the style. Some oak and fruit not typically found in the style. Pretty nice flavor. Lively carbonation, light to medium bodied. Finishes somewhat bitter. Pretty nice, I’m digging the light oak aging with this style.
