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.

Oscbert (1019) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 1, 2014
~Rich bready biscuity malt aroma with light caramel and guava fruitiness. Interesting aroma. ~Pours a brilliantly clear golden color with long lasting fluffy white head. ~Bready malts with slight hop fruitiness and a somewhat off balanced bitterness. ~Medium to full bodied with medium CO2, lingering bitterness. ~Enjoyable lager for sure, just seems unbalanced. Bittering hops kind of ruin it.

brokensail (10792) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 24, 2014
On tap @ Smoqued BBQ. Nearly copper in color with a fluffy white head. Sweet oranges and toasted bread on the nose. Nice pine, too. Kind of a garlic note, though. Flavor has a rather intense bitterness that I wouldn’t normally associate with a beer like this. It’s okay, except for that it’s garlicy. Lots of pine, orange, and some peach. A bit of a grassy, herbal note as well. Decent malt sweetness.

Pours a light copper color with a white head. Citrus, caramel, hop, floral, biscuit and malt aroma and flavors. Medium body and carbonation with a citrus and caramel finish.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body. Darker than most lagers. The aroma is quite fragrant: flowers, grain and musty. Nice though. The taste is grainy malt sweetness with a descent balance of mild bitterness. The texture is a little gritty with moderate carbonation. It’s a nice, full bodied lager.

RedSox2004 (1235) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
Orange/copper colored with a two-finger foamy head and decent lacing, generous carbonation. Aromas of grains and grassy hops with a touch of caramel. Taste is similar, though grainy malts are prominent, and citrus notes make a strong contribution. Medium body, nice carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a slight hop bitterness in the finish.

DYCSoccer17 (3309) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 20, 2014
12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack purchased at Bel-Air in Woodland, CA. The aroma on this is intense! Super dank and piney up front, followed by some graham cracker like honey sweetness. Transparent orange body with a large, strong fluffy off-yellow head present. Starts with a fairly hop-forward flavor. Pine and a bit of a weird green onion flavors. The middle has a nice, grainy, malty flavor. Rather cereal-like (cheerios). Finishes with a mild to moderate bitterness. Hints of white pepper. Not digging this beer.

joeneugs (3192) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 11, 2014
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a deep golden color with a small white head. The aroma has some fat maltiness, apple juice and light floral hops. The flavor has a little more apple and malt with strong floral/methol bitterness. A little caramel sweet. Pretty decent, but not as crisp and dry as I would like.

On tap at City Beer. Pours clear copper with a nice off-white head and a mild toffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with lots of hop bitterness. Refreshing and tasty.
