Yes it is! That is how I have mine set up -- and an added bonus (not sure whether it's a bug or a 
feature -- definitely a 'feature for me) is that it hides the 'cashew' :-)

To apply the "Menu at the top of screen like in MacOS" just click on the small 'cashew' on the 
Menu bar, this then opens another bar which allows you to configure the first bar; you can then 
simply drag the 'Menu bar' to the top of the screen.
