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!

22oz bottle 9/10/10 (Binny’s Plainfield)-48° in Lager glass-Pours a slightly hazy orangish red with a small ring for a head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and oak. Taste is of oak, sweetness, and fruit. This medium bodied brew is a different take on the style and IMO is pretty tasty. Nice brew.

Pours a clear light amber with a medium off white head. Aroma has light toasted caramel and dry leaves. Flavor follows suit and adds a nice woody note and some earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry earthy/woody slightly bitter finish.

Traded bottle (almost bought this at JJ’s too). Pretty nice fest beer overall. Pretty sweet malt forward and then finishes with a light hop bitterness. Fine with me.

On tap at Revolution. Pours a cloudy, brighter orange-amber colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is slightly sweet with a touch of caramel, some darker fruits, a hint of oak, and a very light toast. Flavor is similar. Sweeter up front with some darker fruits giving off a touch of syrup. A light caramel with a touch of oak and toast in the middle. Gets a bit chewy and bready in the sweetness towards the end as the oak and toast grows just a tad along with a light hopping. Dry and somewhat sweet with a very light, but balancing bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent Oktoberfest. A bit sweet with a light caramel, bready toast, oak, and darker fruit although it is well balanced with a somewhat sweet finish and light bitterness. Not bad.

Pours a clear copper color with minimal head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, and hops. Mostly caramel and toasted malt flavor with some hops. Decent beer.

Ugh. Not a fan of this beer. Lacks all of the malty goodness of an O/M. Aroma was weak. Earthy with a slightly toasty malt smell. Not inviting. Pour was a clear medium brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was not very good. This beer did not benefit from any oak aging as its flavor is thin enough that you can’t taste it. Lager yeast with a big metallic flavor dominated with roasted malt in the finish.

Tap at Stags Head, NYC. The aroma is vegetable, caramel bozy. The appearance is hazy amber, white head. The flavor is toast, caramel, oak, booze. Medium in body. Decent, a little strange for this style.

$3.50 cold bottle at Freikoten. Deep amber color with a bit of a hazy, thin head. Note of apple juice when placed within "nose shot." Closer in, I smell the Vienna malt, and an edge of yeast (this is, after all, from their oak foudre). Nice deep malts, tending more toward sweet than hoppy. A note of spice and yeast; likely a few bugs coming in from those wooden aging barrels. Some toasted biscuit and, yes, some roast squash. Yes, an all-around autumn beer!

Typical marzen. Heavy on the malts and slightly sweet. The oak aging does give it just a hint of something special, but not enough to make it awesome. Overall, it’s just ok.
