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/

Grain and bread malts, caramel, light metallic. Clear, dark gold, small, creamy, white head. Light sweet. Intense grain and bread malts, caramel, molasses, lively carbonation, medium bodied. OK Maerzen, solid but not outstanding. Keg at the brewery tap room, Chicago.

MetalNHopHead (1454) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Goose Island’s Oktoberfest is an extremely approachable Festbier. Copper-colored pour with a decent amount of foam and lacing. Rich malty smells and a light fruitiness. Candy-like malt flavors with some mild, tea-like hops at the finish. Texture is just above medium-bodied. Smooth body, medium carbonation. Clean aftertaste, a bit of lingering sweetness. Damn easy to drink.

jbruner (4105) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2016
Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle thin wispy off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of deep caramel and melanoiden malts with a hint of earth. Taste follows, a clean oktoberfest, nice malt forward character. Decent for an American version of the style.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2016
10/2/15. 12oz bottle. I’m not really sure why this is a new/separate rating, but I won’t argue. Glad I looked it up! Amber pour with a small khaki head. Light biscuit and caramel aroma. Malty flavor, biscuit, caramel, doughy, light grassiness. Meh.
