I’m really liking the clean pure taste of Metropolitan’s beers, and this one is no exception. Malty without being too sweet or funky. Also some nice hops in the end. Well balanced, clean, flavorful. Good.

This is a tasty Oktoberfest, malty but not too sweet. It is copper and clear with only a small head. Its nose is rather mild but rich caramel and nutty malt notes really jump once you taste it. This is full bodied but just a touch sweet and not to hang. It finishes with a little earthy bitterness. This is a pretty decent take on the style.

Nice hazy copper Oktoberfest color. Very smooth going down with a nice crisp finish. Would drink again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Haven’t had a new (for me) Oktoberfest in quite a while. This brew pours a somewhat pale orange-ish body with a slender white head. The aroma is sweet (but no too much so) with caramel and a touch of toffee. Same with the taste, ’cept there’s a quiet earthy bitterness to keep the beer in balance. A decent offering from Metropolitan, one of my local breweries.

wlajwl (3895) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Aroma is malts, German lager yeast and a hint of fruit/tobacco. The flavor is fruit/tobacco, malts, berries and a tangy/slightly tart finish.

12 ounce bottle purchased at Archer Liquors Chicago, IL at $1.63 Very good!

jjgmd (1447) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle, via Archer Liquors, Chicago, pours a semi-clear rusty copper color with a decent head. Nose is grainy and bready, and not all that pleasant, but it’s a lager. Taste is grainy with caramel and malt. Finishes poorly without flavor or taste, but not a lager lover and that has to be in my tasting equation. Pass the ales. Quaff Score 5/ 10

zgaier (1400) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Pours a clear copper orange with a beige head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is of malt, caramel, grains, straw with a malty, smooth finish. Light and typical Oktoberfest, not my favorite style

At Rockwells. Metropolitan does a good job of making excellent right on style versions of German beers. This is another example. Soft smooth somewhat slick mouth feel and a roasted butteriness. Serving: Tap

HonkeyBra (3389) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a rich orangish red color with a thick off white head. Aroma of wood, rich caramel malts, with a slight floral and herbal aroma. Flavor is sweet, mild bitterness imparted by the hops. Some wood, some grass, some caramel. Certainly interesting. Full bodied, nice average carbonation. Delicious.
