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!

$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!

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.

Very nice Oktoberfest beer. Higher abv but the overall taste wasn't heavy. Great flavor as well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Best part of this beer is its aroma. Taste rather average. Nothing really stands out. Kinda confused on genre but overall, drinkable.

Clear Amber pour with a little white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Definitely malt forward but not as much as other fest beers. Slick and creamy kinda. I like it a lot. The oak aging adds a bit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

12oz bottle pours a clear Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of faint mildly sweet caramel malt, fruity, and a light spice. Taste of caramel malts, fruity hops and yeast, there is a bitterness and spice on the finish I’m not digging.

12oz bottle. 1/11/16 BB date. Appearance: Crystal clear dark copper/amber, with a low, slightly off white foam head. Aroma: Lightly toasted malt with some herbal hop notes. Touch of light caramel and vanilla. Taste: Rich toasted and caramel malt sweetness, with well balanced, but not strong herbal bitterness. Almond noticeable on the back end. Mouthfeel: Medium body and moderate carbonation. Slight hint of alcohol on the swallow. Finish: Well balanced bitterness, but this is malt forward with some lingering toast. Some alcohol and almond stick around as well. Overall: A solid Marzen, still very drinkable considering the elevated ABV. Oak aging adds little character, but I do pick up a touch of almond. Nice on a cool evening.

I have tried this one a few years in a row. I’m a fan of Marzen style and every year I have my fill of the traditional German Marzens. This one has a different spin on style. A full bodied malt. The flavors of the oak aging are there. The abv. is upped to almost imperial levels. Bready and caramel malts are the main focus here.

12 oz. bottle into pint glass. Pours clear amber with thin off white head. Aroma, malty. Flavor, toasted grains. Not a favorite.

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