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!

I see you o’ forgotten rate just a hidin’ in my notebook... I’m gonna enter the crap outta you!

Pours a rust color with a wispy but well retained head.

The aroma is sweet and malty with some herbal stuff going on, and some booziness.

The flavor is kind of interesting, very sweet with some toffee in there, some leafiness, and plenty of alcohol. All sorts of oddities, Brussels sprouts, raisins, cherries...

I don’t know man, Imperializing the Oktoberfest is a delicate thing... almost no one seems to do it in a way that wows me. This isn’t bad, but it’s just not what I feel like drinking on a fall day... not really at all.

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

Headbanger (3880) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2010
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.

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.

tmoreau (3762) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2016
On tap at Ellyn’s in Glen Ellyn, L., dispensed to a house-logoed tulip showing a fairly clear, light mahogany hue, with a finger’s width of off white head foam, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was some dark caramel & dried fruit sweetness, toasted maltiness, with a light but distinct Munich scent. Better than medium bodied, with fair carbonation, and a mild creaminess to the mouthfeel, the taste was as the aroma notes, including a slightly roasted, earthy, and lightly tannic bitterness that lingered, with noticeable alcohol presence. Would have appreciated a dryer, less sweet finish, but a tasty, Marzen "on steroids", nonetheless.

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.

I’ve really been going after the oktoberfests this season. Fine copper pour very little head. Nose is oak and light caramel. Tastes of old caramel, biscuits, hay, cardboard, herbal, flannel shirt and oak. Dry and slightly boozy but I kind of dig it.
