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/

bhensonb (13978) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle at Yolo Microbrewfest. Pours really coppery with an off-white head. Near med body. Flavor is mildly roasty malt with nut hints. Decent, typically boring, marzen. My issue that.

DSG (11469) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 31, 2013
