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/

This toffee and burnt sugar aromatic beer is malty and a little bitter but the notes of apricot definitely give it an interesting taste. The high level of the alcohol content (6.4%) makes it a good beer to be paired with either meatballs, chili or some traditional German food.

Sweet , malty , toffee tones. No hops or bitterness at all. From a beer hawk mystery case. On reflection , not as good as my first bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Darker orange color. Very clear. Toasted notes in the aroma. Bready nose. No hops. Definitely sweet; candied. Malty flavor. Finish fades quickly. Slight fruitiness. Not a bad beer, if only slightly out of style.

Bottle, 355ml. Clear sparkling maple, frothy tan head. Metallic, grainy aromas. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet, lightly bitter. Sweet roasted and toffee flavors into a rustic, sticky finish.

This was a very sweet beer and, dare I say it, a bit one dimensional. I felt that the caramel was too strong and overpowered everything else.

Solid tasty brew. Nothing offensive, typical Carmel sweet taste for an Oktoberfest. Tastes sweeter than it smells.

R4N5H (1163) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2017
12oz bottle from Beerhawk, and poured into a snifter on 29-Dec-2016. Clear reddish brown in colour with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma idk sweet - biscuit malt and toffee. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is sweet and malty. Caramel, spices, hops, bread and dark fruit. Light, drinkable but on the sweet side.

scooterbub (1064) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JAN 2, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Pours a amber/copper color with a thin beige head that last. Taste is of sweet malt, honey, caramel, bread and dark fruit. Sweet malt aroma. Has a decent body. Overall, okay. Too sweet and fruit forward for me.
