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!

$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!

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.

Typical marzen. Heavy on the malts and slightly sweet. The oak aging does give it just a hint of something special, but not enough to make it awesome. Overall, it’s just ok.

From notes. Tasted from bomber bottle at Lush West Town. Pours clear amber orange with a thin white head that leaves a very thin collar. The nose is fairly non-descript with a hint of malts and spices peeking through. The flavors are mostly malt with some sweetness and a hint of bitterness. The body is medium plus with light carbonation and a medium sweet and malty finish.

jcr (2692) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle. Medium amber body. Frothy off-white head. Aroma of toasted grain, wood, caramel malts. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The raw grain taste is magnified by the oak. Notes of caramel and nuts.

Bottle pour clear copper. Nose sweet malt and fall fruit, some yeast. Taste syrupy malt, hops show up as bitterness. Not much of the fruit you get in the nose showig up in the taste. Fairly bitter aftertaste

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2016 A rather potent and heavy version of an Oktoberfest. Very nice but nothing you would throw back a lot of. Serving: Bottle
