4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Goose Island Oktoberfest has an extremely thick, bone-colored head, a semi-clear, amber appearance, with moderate lacing and lots of white specs roiling throughout. The aroma is of dried apricot and toffee and bread crust, and the flavor is of those elements, with Roman Meal brand bread and noticeable, mild, and appropriate bitterness rounding it out. Mouthfeel is medium, and Goose Island Oktoberfest finishes dry and highly gulpable. RJT

A little sweeter than I’m used to - less bread, more toffee - but pretty solid across the board.

Bottle-- I was hoping for more, it’s basically a Sam Adams knockoff. Cooper color with a medium size head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Taste was caramel with toffee. The finish had a noticeable mineral finish. Total wine.

12oz bottle pours a clear Amber with a large khaki head. Toffee and caramel malt aroma, dry. Taste of burnt sugar, with caramel and toffee malts. Not bad.

A fair tasting, crisp beer. Coper colored. Lacking malt but still quite drinkable

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.
