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!

Bottle. Amber-orangey-gold pour, frothy white head with decent retention. Nose is caramel, dried grass, candied orange peel, dates. Mouth is relatively sweet, lots of caramel, grass and a subtle bitterness, some orange, warm finish for a märzen.

Skyview (5868) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2016
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a semi-clear golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates. Aroma of roasted sweet caramel malt, a hint of floral hops and a touch of cream tartar Taste is medium bodied with flavors of sweet caramel malt and floral hops and a touch of fruit. Finish is semi-sweet with a caramel malt and floral hops. A nice Munich style oktoberfest and even has some aging smoothness detected in the finish.

vyvvy (6317) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 3, 2016
It pours bronze with an off white head. The aroma has dry roasted malt, oak and light toffee. It has a medium body with light carbonation. The taste is fairly dry for the style with lots of woodiness, spice, and crusty bread. Good.

tmoreau (4164) - 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.

seuinoz (254) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Alcohol taste and smell with this beer. Kind of bready with alcohol lingering within the taste. Sits ok on the palate. Not what I would call a oktoberfest beer,very poor example.

Palidor19 (3180) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2016
A little syrupy, very sweet. Slight nutty, slight spicy. Has a medium palate with a low carbonated beer. Nice beer for a end of day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gespuccian (141) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2016
A light copper color, pours with a nice fluffy head. Carmel, some light roast malt on the nose and the first sip. The profile rounds out with just a touch of hops, and maybe some dryness from the oak. A lighter marzen that hides the higher ABV.

JPDIPSO (6094) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Tan with a hint of copper in color. Somewhat fluffy light khaki head. Fairly weak head. I catch hints of toasted malt and sour mash and a wisp of noble hops, but not enough to make me take notice. Starts sweet with toasted malt and caramel notes. Hints of oak and floral hops. Pleasing in a sweet marzen way. A bit more toasted malt and tone down the caramel and floral notes and this one is golden. 10/14

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Poured into a perfect pint. 3.5 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is about average and lots of spotty lacing is left. 5.0 S: This smells absolutely wonderful. Toasted malts, layers of caramel, and that lager yeast twang. Oak adds a nice layer of complexity with vanilla contributions. This is whatever the olfactory version of "smooth" is. It’s just such a pleasant, subtle nose. 4.5 T: The taste can’t live up to the nose, but that’s okay since it’s still delicious. Caramel and toasted malts, subtle vanilla, and a light metallic lager yeast flavor. Everything is right where it should be. 4.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Silky smooth with a pleasant creaminess. Near perfect here. 5.0 D: The best octoberfest beer I’ve had this season. It may not have bold flavors or a ton of complexity, but it’s so subtly well done, that it’s a near perfect beer. ★ 940 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 27, 2015

Draught @ Albion. Hazy reddish brown with small frothy beige head, very faint caramel aroma, high carbonation, woodsy flavor, slightly bitter caramel taste, abrupt finish. Interesting.
