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/

12 oz bottle from Kroger. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, some general fruit, could be the apricots, biscuity, some mild earthy bitterness, pretty average.

Pours deep caramel-copper into the glass, clear with a fizzy white head that diminishes with each pull to no lace of which to speak. The nose is of caramel and light spices. Nice caramel and toffee sweetness and met with light pie spices in the finish, closing spicy. The body is medium with a round mouthfeel and appropriate carbonation semi-zest to the palate, as to make a very nice quaff for this Märzen. All-in-all, a nice Oktoberfest... malty, perfect for the season. Good job.

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.
