COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the traditional Märzen style our Oktoberfest pours a brilliant copper over rose color with a bone white head. Notes of toffee and burnt sugar in the aroma and flavors of sweet dried apricots are delivered in a dry malty body with the mild earthy bitterness that is the hallmark of Hallertau hops.

This is the new recipe bottled by AB-InBev. Old entries for the earlier bottled and Brewpub version are located here: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/goose-island-oktoberfest-brewpub-recipe/6808/

At Bar Louie's. Pours dark copper with a thin sticky head. Soft malt with caramel finish. You taste a mild cinnamon after swallowing. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

12 oz bottle. The beer poured a clear amber color with an off white and lacing. The beer had sweet caramel malts on the nose. The balanced Marzen beer had a medium body with average carbonation. This is easy to drink Octoberfest with a smooth clean finish malt aroma. Nice beer.

From a 12 oz bottle into a Rodenbach Grand Cru glass. Pours amber raspberry with small head and lace. Aroma of malts, grains, biscuits, minerals, spice. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of amber malts, grains, slight clove, licorice, cereal, caramel. Overall rich, flavorful, decent.
