A very malty lager. An average beer at best , very hearty in flavor. Smells terrible and has a bitter finish. Had at oshaunasseys

Sample at Hopleaf. Clear amber color with a thin white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt, caramel and mild grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a roast malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Pours a nice golden colour with tiny white head. Aroma is hops, malt, fruits. Taste is sweet hops. Very drinkable beer.
crystal clear gold with tiny head that dissipates quickly (maybe a bad pour?).

7/27/2010: Metropolitan Dynamo Copper... Aroma: Creamy toothpaste; cooked apple with toffee. Appearance: Hazy copper color; dense, creamy, and lasting beige head; solid lacing. Flavor: Brown sugar; a touch of buttery; earthy bitterness; some toffee and roast: oxidized cherry and green apple. Palate: Medium-full body, really creamy and smooth. Overall: Decent, but confusing.
Draught at Duganís in Chicago. Rating #98 for this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Eugene for sharing - clear gold - frothy lace - lovely nose of honeyed maltiness, grassy and floral hops, bright fruitiness, melon rind - moderately frothy carbonation in the mouth - light, crisp - crackery malts, moderate minerality, floral, medium bitter hops - some clean honey-ish sweetness in the finish - light Vienna toastiness throughout - there is a very mild huskiness on the tail end that is the only drawback - otherwise this is quite a nice lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear copper with minimal head. Aroma is pretty weak. A little caramel and straw. Taste is light sweet. Caramel with a little spice. Full bodied with a slightly thick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Not standout but drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours crystal clear gold with tiny head that dissipates quickly (maybe a bad pour?). Aroma is mild hops and malt, with some fruitness that I canít identify. Taste is nicely balanced; primarily sweet with a hint of bitter that increases through the finish. Mouthfeel is full, more than Iím used to with a lager. Overall refreshing and solid but I wouldnít get excited about drinking it. Donít know why people are hating on this beer so much; perhaps Iím just not experienced enough with tasting and rating lagers.

Tis beer, folks is my go to. Itís good. And itís predictable. I think they do a good job of consistency.
Tis beer has a really nice copper color to it. Itís got a really nice persistent head that lasts until the end. Gives a pretty lacing in the glass.
I could drink this every day.

This beer was really disappointing. For a local beer, and a craft brew at that, it was lacking in flavor and intensity. I would hope for a bigger taste in their variations on this classic style.

12 oz bottle pours a clear light copper color with decent off-white head and a little lacing. Aroma starts with caramel malts, then citrus hops. Taste is at first sweet, with a slightly bitter and nutty finish. Nothing outrageous here, but enjoyable none the less.
