Metric Brewing’s rotating offerings do fine on flavor

It’s been almost three months since Metric Brewing opened, and so far, the community response has been largely praiseworthy, minus some online friction about portion size versus proper glassware. Wiser heads than ours will debate this to oblivion, but for now, there’s beer to drink. A 10-ounce pour of Florida Man ($5), the brewery’s Key lime pie Berliner Weisse, stands out as a favorite. It has a mildly fruity nose, sipping tart but not overly so, with mild grain notes. We also get tasters of the other five beers on rotation, at $2 per pour. The standout is Forbidden Fruit, a pomegranate imperial pale ale that’s not super hoppy but otherwise has a lovely tart pomegranate and caramel flavor. Generally, we find flavors to be on point. But with darker beers like Pastor Toastman, a maple-sweetened French toast brown ale, or Malibu Nights, a roasty coconut porter, we hope for mouth-filling body, but each concentrates on the center of the tongue.
