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.

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 (1329) - 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 (3274) - 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.

ryecatcher (739) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours a really nice, clear, deep ambery-copper color with big rocky off-white head. Stellar retention and lacing. Nose is noble hops, dried grass, orange peel, toasted malts. Mouth is medium bodied and clean, malt forward with toasted bread and caramel, some orange peel in the midrange, very mild underlying hops bitterness at the finish. Really nice example of the style and my favorite Metropolitan beer to date. Prost!

Slugged it a warm while walking down a chicago alley. Seems pretty tue to style, will try another and report back.

jstraw (1906) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Draft at Jerry’s. Copper-gold with fair, creamy, white head / Nose of honey, toast, and caramel / Medium to full body, fat with low carbonation, creamy, somewhat sweet and resinous, with good, lightly bitter finish / Flavors of honey, violet, grain, and resinous / This is a terrific lager, say a Dortmunder, but I pick up no Marzen character. So what.

Enjoyed on tap at Sheffield’s in Chicago, IL while eating dinner with some friends, talking about random stuff. I didn’t take tasting notes, so I’m not going to get into details about specifics, but I remember this being an above-average Oktoberfest brew, and would gladly like to have this one again.
