Beautiful copper color. Caramel flavor with nutty notes and very restrained but noticeable hoppiness. Slightly roasted notes as well. Somewhat dull but pleasing finish. Frank (4236) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2010
From the description, it seems Metropolitan was going for an easy drinking everyday lager and that’s just what this is. Pours a copper color (imagine that!) with only a small white head. Grassy, herbal hops are the focus of the notes w/ some grainy notes playing a back up role. Flavor is more malt centric w/ a nice Vienna malt character. The hops take on a more floral aspect as well. Light bodied and unfortunately a bit undercarbonated which makes it feel a little sluggish on the tongue. This is a good beer and could be a great beer w/ some adjustment. I’d drink it every day.

12 oz bottle, someone brought over for the superbowl. Nothing special but at least its from Chicago. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. The nose is caramel malt and earthy hops. The taste pretty much follows suit. Medium bodied. An ok beer. angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2010

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours a hazy light amber with a white head. Aroma of some faint toasty notes and light maltiness. Flavor is the same as aroma with a little hop personality. Mouth feel is light bodied. Overall, not all that bad... mar (5442) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2009
bottle thanks to blutt59. light gold color with a white head. sweet malts on the nose with not much else. light on the palate flavors of malts and fruits. Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Pours a clear orange color with a big puffy white head that hangs around for a little bit. Aroma has a toasted note but is overly dominated by a vegetable soup aroma (quite off putting in my opinion). Flavor has a very strong roasted note, some lager yeasty notes but again, the vegetable soup note rears its head in the flavor as well. Light body with a very clean, smooth texture and very low carbonation. Overall a pretty disappointing brew. The flavors just never came out to work in a harmonious way. I don’t know if there was a flavor/aroma that was mixing to form the vegetable soup but it was really off putting for this brew. As a hometown brew, this fact only added to my disappointment. blutt59 (6579) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2009
