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!

Tap @ Happy Gnome. Pours a bit hazy, dark orange appearance with an off white head. Fairly tame caramel, slightly spicy, a touch woody aroma. Mild toffee, caramel, a bit chewy, nutmeg flavor. Nothing all that special but decent to drink.

j12601 (10089) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2010
On tap at the Gingerman when I stopped in with Joe after Paul’s tasting. Pours a clear orange with a thin white head. Caramel and hops, sticky sweet. Crisp and clean. Malt and light bitterness throughout. Clean hops and sticky grapefruit on the finish, with a lightly medicinal quality.

Bottle. Nose of caramel, honey, some chocolate. Light amber with lace. Fruity flavor, plum, peaches, caramel, light peppery bitterness. Don’t get all tha tmuch barrel, but nice stuff like a bock.

12oz bottle, best by 11/22/12. Another Two Bros. beer aged in French oak foudres? They must be getting a bulk discount on those. Was surprised when I actually sat down to taste this beer that the ABV is labeled 7.7% - definitely not your average oktoberfest. Clear orange-red color, minimal white head, leaving some lace. Good, more crisp lighter carbonation, dry finish. Very interesting toasty aroma - much more substantial than other oktoberfests, which I usually find to be a little lacking, yet no decrease in drinkability, here. Some dates? Light spice, definitely complex malt aroma. Light bitter taste, some savory. This is really tasty, and drinks like it’s 6%. Along with Southern Tier Harvest, this is definitely another offering that I’ll be frequently adding to my fall mix-packs.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2011
Amber pour. The nose has a little bit of light chewy fruitiness. Dried berries and a little bit of tobacco. Fairly rich and a little bit chewy as well. Fairly estery with some lingering toastiness. Lean and bready with some astringent bitterness.

b3shine (8660) - Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Draft to pint. Looks good; a fairly transparent copper with thin white lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells, only better. And that oak really adds to the complexity of the beer. Good on the palate too. Nice! Maybe the best Oktoberfest I’ve ever had (even if it isn’t from Germany).

PorterPounder (7762) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, quickly diminishing light off-white head. Pleasant light spicy aroma, hints of nutmeg, a trace of date fruitiness. Flavor is pleasantly sweet with some light molasses, a hint of date fruitiness, just a hint of nutmeg-like spiciness. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it,

JaBier (7656) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Sample at the Oktoberfest tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 9/23/10. Clear amber pour with a thin beige. Malty nose with some alcohol and a bit of tartness. Malty flavor with some tart fruit and a thin finish.

Draught at Dragon Kings Daughter in New Albany. Amber color. Caramel and toffee and a fairly amber taste. Lots of amber in this marzen.
