4.3/5  rDev -0.9%

Two drafts at Ground Control.

Hazy gold color with lively carbonation. Two fingers of creamy foam that has a softly textured meringue surface. Lasting retention with concentric rings of soapy lace in the glass.

Aroma is mild and bready, smooth with no rough edges.

Taste is also nuanced and smooth, snappy, bready, and clean. This goes down so very smooth. Crisp with light yeasty presence, slight prickly carbonation. Mild cracker and bread crust. Very refreshing and so easy to drink, I hope this is a candidate for sixers. Paired well with spicy chile-infused food.

On-tap at The Olympic Tavern in Rockford, IL a few weeks ago.

A - Hazy piss. Spot on!

S - Bready, slight grassy hop, grain bomb.

T - Wow. This is the best kellerbier/traditional lager I have ever had. Amazing fruity (thank you, yeast) and light grassy flavors (Saaz?) layered with sweet, biscuity malt. Extremely flavorful. Dry finish. An absolute pleasure to drink this.

M - Light, crisp, carbonated. Served slightly cooler than room temp.

O - Get this. Good god. I pray this reaches bottles some day. Metropolitan proves once again that they really know lagers.
