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/

jmohno (1508) - Iowa, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Pretty amber color clear light head, aroma of sweet nutty mineral, toffee, don’t really get apricot but it might have a slight fruit aroma. Same in taste with toffee sweet mineral, kind of orange with citrus and black pepper moreso in bitter or finish. A little on the sweet side, but I don’t like how the bitter plays with this or maybe a certain type of malt in this or oktoberfests. its that bitter mineral thing I can get into with.
