Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a white head that fades over a clear golden body. Aroma of rain, honey and sweet bread. Taste is grainy, with honey. Fizzy and dry. Forgettable. IrishBoy (4199) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 18, 2010
12 oz bottle from msante79. Nose of grassy hops, and light caramel. Lightly hazy gold with a medium off white head. Flavor is peppery with light bitterness and a hint of caramelly sweetness. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 12, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 Bottle from guyinchicago. pours a (shocker)copper color. Very malty on the nose. But along with the malt comes some aluminum foil notes...metallic is what I am trying to say. Flavor is malty, lagery and overall not that great. I am surprised to see the rating as high as it is. MrBunn (2826) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle that starts out looking dingy gold and ends with a color that a generous observer might call copper (on some sort of limited color wheel). Head is a small film of tiny bubbles and aromas are grassy with some caramel and biscuit maltiness. Flavor is dominated by watered down biscuit with a bit of honey and a little bit of a grassy presence in the finish. It’s good enough, but kind of boring.

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...

Bottle sample from STLWill (Thanks!) Orange/yellow pour with a metallic aroma. Flavor was that of any standard run of the mill lager, but finished a little bitter. DuffMan (10429) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 26, 2010
On tap at Hop Leaf, compared directly to another vienna-style lager, Eliot Ness from Great Lakes. This came out the loser. Clear copper amber, mediocre white head. Lightly fruity, and a little skunky/sweaty. Much thinner mouthfeel than the Eliot Ness. Mediocre at best. shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

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 Dugan’s in Chicago. Rating #98 for this beer.
Bottle thanks to 17thfloor for sharing. Pours a clear copper with a white bubbled head. Toffee and toasted malts in the aroma with something off, not sure what. Extremely malt nose though. Creamy toffee malts that become dirty in a bad bad way. There are a few solid components to this beer, but something is really off with this one. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2010
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.
