COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The return of the Metryís, it is a very light lager in color. It has a light, sweet grainy aroma with Noble hops present. This beer is well balanced and finishes clean. A light beer with a lot of alcohol, so be careful!!

OK lager. Malty and grainy aromas with a mild hops presence. Clear golden color with a sustainable white head. Light palate with decent carbonation. Probably the lightest beer of theirs Iíve had with the exception of the Bohemian Pilsner. Grainy malts with a little straw and a decent bitter finish. Well blended and deceptively strong.

Tap: hazed, sunshine-gold body with a super fine-bubbled layer of creamy foam that sits on top for days, leaving a huge sheet of lacing all around the glass. Aroma is certainly lager-like; fresh grains, baked bread, crisp yeast, sharp with some spicy Noble hops in the back & a mild twinge of DMS. Taste is smooth & crisp with earthy & spicy hops, undertones of sweet baked bread, light honey, & a mild inclusion of lemon-y, citrus zest. Finishes clean, as a lager should, leaving only a slight bit of bread & yeast behind. Donít understand the hate on this one, itís a very nice, enjoyable lager.

Light copper pour. Sweet bread Roma and a little spice. Sweet malt, thin body, little carbonation. Hints of caramel but clean lager. Nothing crazy but easy to drink.

Draft. Clear yellow beer with white foamy head. Sweet aroma and taste, a little syrupy, mild lager flavors. Overall oksy

The only reason that this beer is rated so poorly is probably becqause it was at winter solstice and there are a bunch of idiots with no palates that attend. A very ncie lager adn a suprisingly nice one. Light but alcoholic but not boozy.

12oz bottle. TIPA color orangish pour with no head. Nose is sweet malt and spices. Taste is very sweet and very flat. No character but sweetness. Disappointing to say the least. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz Bottle. Winter Solstice 2011. 11% ABV. 12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! Iím really curious to know how they got this beer up to 11% and kept it this pale. Iím guessing a fair amount of white malt. The aroma has a wild menagerie of mixed fermentation congeners, some friendly petting-zoo barnyard animals, others fierce angry beasts of the deep woods. The beer comes at me with a vicous attack of characteristic Kuhnhenn lactic acidity. If you handed me a sample of this blind, I would say that it was a too-sweet, too-warm, but rather meek Hefeweizen. This beer is not conjuring winter in my mind, instead, perhaps a warm bath, with some lemon-scented bubbles and shampoo that stings my eyes. Odd, indeed.

Bottle... Poured golden, hazy yellow with a white head. Nose of cracker, biscuity malts with some floral earthiness. Clean tasting. Went down easy. Smooth malt flavors with subtle earthiness. Mild sweetness and some bread-like malts.

Tap at The Ginger Man in NYC. Pours a clear old with sticky white lacing. Nose is fairly big margarine/diacetyl. Taste is a bit metallic and trashy up front with malt liquor sweetness and macro graininess finishing papery and corn syrup cloying. Hints of fruitiness at the front morphs to wild paper and dry stale cracker.
