COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Metropolis Lager pours a radiant gold, with tropical fruit aromas and a delicate floral note. Caramel malts lend a subtle sweetness to balance the dry, crisp character of the lager yeast. Generously dry-hopped with a blend of Mosaic and Saphir hops, Metropolis unites classic German-style brewing and West Coast innovation to create a refreshing yet flavorful lager.

I only know Speakeasy for hoppy West Coast style ales. Brewery sets out and suceeds in building a better Premium Lager. Golden pour, malt aroma, light bodied with sweet caramel and subtle grapefruit falvor in the aftertaste. Metropolis Lager was part of a mixed case.

Oh yeah I like it a lot. Goes down well, even being noticeably hoppy. Slightly sweet and some bitter. Nice balance overall with the flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Albion. Rich yellow with small creamy off-white head, faint hops aroma, lightly hoppy taste, medium carbonation, abrupt finish. A well balanced lager.

maekchu (2556) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Sweetish nose, some citrus and light cat piss, apples, and some floral notes. Dark gold straw, decent head, clumpy lace. Sweet malty initial, hops take over quickly, some good caramel in mid. Okay. The German / West Coast blend thing doesn’t really work out so well. Taste more like a pale ale than a lager.

Tap in SFO. Light caramel malt aroma with light hops with subtle floral notes. Pours light golden colored with a thin white head and very little lacing. Starts with a lot of caramel malt but not overpowering. Finishes dry and clean with a little of of floral hops on the finish. Nice, refreshing lager, but pretty standard.
