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!

Malty, fairly balanced with a somewhat dry finish. A bit of earthiness and a lingering aftertaste.

A rather potent and heavy version of an Oktoberfest. Very nice but nothing you would throw back a lot of. Serving: Bottle

jstraw (1943) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Copper with light, beige, head / Sweet nose of spun sugar and malt / Medium body, malty and sweet, cloying, very low carbonation and hopping / Flavors of spun sugar and cooked fruit / Not true to the style, and ignoring that, not a very good beer.

Pint pour @ Fountainheads. Dark orange with an off beige head and lace. Taste is caramel, toasty malt, slightly citric. The bitterness develops nicely. Finish is lingering and decent. Overall not bad.

On tap at Tribe’s Alehouse. Pour is hazy amber with a small cream colored head. Aroma and flavor of toasted bread, light caramel, tea leaves, raisin, and wheat. Finish is a bit of spice and caramel malt with a touch of oak.

Rusty orange semi clear pour. Nose is grainy and kinda flat. Taste is oaky, with a nice bite of alcohol, and bitter sweet with some spice. Carbonation is soft, with medium texture. Finish is sweet and dry. Quaff Score 6 / 10

tmongoose (1611) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 22, 2011
12oz bottle, this octoberfest styled lager is a darker amber color with large frothy off white head. aroma is of malt and kind of like sweetbreads. didnt read bottle description at first and there was a dark deep core taste i couldnt put my finger on and then figured out is was aged in french oak barrels. there is a mild spiciness to this beer. there is also a buttery slick fell to it.

Pours a dark orange with a small off white head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is sweet , of toasty malt, caramel, bread, and grains with a long finish and alcohol warming.
