Bottle into Sam Adams lager glass, with another nod to th efine gentleman that is Alewatcher. Thanks, Jeff!
Pours crystal clear bright copper, with a long lasting off-white creamy head. Nice lacing as well.
Nose is toasty, bready, underlying caramel, earthy hops, faintly metallic.
Taste is a step up - bready, toasty malt body carries notes of caramel and the fruity, faintly metallic ring of crystal malt. Earthy hops balance and support, add a bit of substance and weight to the malt body without shining on their own.
Mouthfeel is smooth, light, soft carbonation is almost sensed more than felt, medium-full body.
Drinkability is pretty good - feels like a bigger beer than it is, which is neither bad nor good really; certainly nice to that full in flavor, but it's got enough presence that you really notice it. Quite enjoyable, a great beer to keep around the fridge if it was available in my area consistently - holds up well to the benchmarks in the style (Brooklyn, Sam Adams).

4.06/5 rDev +7.4%

Appearance: Copper, light brown burnt orange color. Finger worth on head on the pour which the active carbonation continued to regenerate. Active carbonation is above average for the style.
Smell: Vienna malts on the front with accents of caramel and molasses. A touch of grassy hops show up on the body. Some slightly nutty malts with doughy buttery yeast round this one out.
Taste: Amber malts shine on the front. A touch of caramel sweetness really pulls the drinker in. Toasted nuts, warming malts, and airy grains compose the body. A touch of hops and continuing semi sweet caramel and molasses really pull this one through.
Mouthfeel: Pleasant cleanliness on the palate with lingering malt sweetness to keep you pulling on it. Carbonation is right on.
Overall: Metropolitan is certainly a premier brewery if you are looking for lagers. Impressive flavors produced with that cleanliness I always look for in a lager. Great stuff.
