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.

It has very little aroma. It pours a nice amber color, which I expected for this beer. Its very plain. The first sip starts off bland, a hint of malt. Then it finishes with a light bitter taste. That is it, it really had no complexity at all. It has a very light, watery palate. Just really depressing since its one of my favorite breweries. The old Oktoberfest was infinitely better then this.

DialSquare (3396) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2014
12oz bottle from Kroger in Grandview. Orange pour with thin light tan head. Aroma of nutty today caramel. Tastes of sweet bready caramel, light bitter. Not a huge fan of the style - this is ok though.

tekstr1der (136) - New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Copper pour yields a small clingy head. Bready and malty nose give way to toffee and more malty flavor. Smooth and easy finish, this is a great Marzen.

APPEARANCE - traditional octoberfeast copper tan color. Nice head. NOSE - perfect light malty sweetness. FLAVOR - spot on for traditional Oktoberfest flavor. NOTES - One more great addition to GI's new offerings.

guzzler67 (1563) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Classic amber appearance with a large beige head and a fair amount of lacing. Fruity, sweet malt aroma with a hint of red licorice. Flavor stays sweet and fruity followed by a modest amount of spicy, herbal hops thru to the aftertaste. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel leading to an average length finish.

bubblehouse (776) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Pretty good for the style. Nice malty flavor but a fairly weak aroma. Not bad and worth trying.

HuskerTan (762) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. A- Malty, spices, slightly sweet, brown sugar, apricots. A- Copper color, clear liquid, tan head. T- Malty, spices, stone fruits, burnt sugars. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- Some nice fruity notes you normally don’t get in a Marzen. I did like it less as it warmed but overall, it was a fairly good beer. Good spices and overall pretty well balanced. Not my favorite of the style but nothing wrong with it.
