12 ounce bottle. Pours golden orange with a nice beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and grass. Taste is malt, grain, caramel, and a bit of spice. Enjoyable.

Pours a slightly hazy light copper with a creamy white head and decent lacing. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Taste is toasted malt and biscuit with some caramel. Finishes with some malt flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Straightforward and decent octoberfest but nothing special.

this one is very well put together. Definitely on the sweeter side which I look for out of a good Marzen.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear golden/amber with a thin white head. Bread aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttery biscuits, nuts and spicy mild hops. Good one.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

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.

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.
