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/

Good Oktoberfest style. A little sweet on the palate going down. Would rather my Oktoberfest have a little richer taste versus sweet finish. For the price a good kickoff to the season ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Cavie (4638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 13, 2017
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.

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.

From the bottle. Light malt aroma with hints of fruit. Copper color with a decent, cream colored head. Malt sweetness is prevalent, hops come later and linger. Sugary aftertaste.
