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 was quite enjoying this beer until it warmed slightly and acetaldehyde became quite apparent on the nose. I guess it’s just a bad batch but you’d hope these guys were having consistent fermentations at the scale they’re producing at. I don’t usually bother rating beers but it’s a pretty major flaw.

Nice sweet mold smell with a bit of Oakwood and some floral scents. Lovely golden amber color with small Whitehead that dissipates quickly.Nice sweet malt Flavor with wood like taste in the middle, nice smooth Juicey finish. Medium body with Juicey crisp carbonation. Nice lager says west coast all over it.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2016 Garrafa 355 ml. Translucida, dourada que, curiosamente, parece que vai tornando-se mais ambar perto da espuma que é clara e firme. Aroma com lúpulos, algo de mato e cítrico. O sabor possui a presença de maltes, além algo de ervas e sabores cítricos. Boa carbonação. É uma lager bastante interessante.

Okazuje się, że w dziedzinie browarnictwa, na amerykanów można liczyć. Wszystko, czego ostatnio próbowałem, zaliczyć można do grupy bardzo dobrych! Także lager z San Francisco, to bardzo dobra propozycja! Kolor złoty i bardzo ładna, biała piana. Aromat amerykańskich chmieli uderza od razu. Nie szczędzili go nawet do lagera ;) Są cytrusy i inne owoce. Podobnie w smaku. Fajna, grejpfrutowa goryczka, przyjemne nuty owocowe. Lekka ziołowość.Wysycenie średnie. Ciężko rozpoznać, że to lager. Prędzej obstawiałbym APA. Bardzo przyjemne, udane piwo!

Aus der Flasche (vom Händler bezogen) ins Glas: Goldgelb mit stabiler Schaumkrone. Malzigkeit und Hopfenbittrre hervorragend ausbalanciert. Ein würdiges Premiumlager.

12 ounce from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A big white creamy head leaves cool lacing. Lots of bubbles rising. A well hopped aroma is citrus and classic American hops. Flavor, too. This could easily pass for a pale ale. Fruit dominates and is citrus and tropical. The edges are smoothed out which is the only effect of lagering I notice. This is tasty and if there ever becomes a style called India Pale Lager this would fit nicely.

Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured very clear gold color with an off white head and good lacing. Attractive beer. The nose is citrus and tropical fruit. Medium plus body, and a super clean smooth mouth feel. Flavor is big on the fruit and there is s lovely bitter finish. Very easy drinking and refreshing.

Rosie’s Pizza at Penn Station: pours golden with a white head. Aroma is lightly fruity and a tad lagerish. Taste is kind of sweet and not very bitter. Easy to drink. I think my bottles were a bit olde.

12 oz bottle into tall chilled glass. Another fine offering from one of my favorite local brewers. Metro lager combines bold hoppiness with citrus flavor to deliver a highly drinkable lager beer. I prefer ambers and pale ales to IPAs, and Metro provides enough grapefruit bitterness to offset the fruitiness of the hops and malt. Nice balance, good quality control for a large production craft beer.
