Notes/Commercial Description:
The kinetic beauty of spicy hops grabs you by the nose and lets you know: this is German-inspired beer. A mild, bready malt sweetness greets you at the lips, smoothing the crisp hop flavors. Flywheel is meant for bombastic celebrations of singing voices and clamoring mugs. But then, that first contented moment of happy hour is uniquely celebratory as well.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Straw yellow color with some darker accents of orange. Half a finger of head on the pour which dissipated quickly to a thin layer across the top. Very light random lacing left behind. Active carbonation is a touch low for the style.

Smell: Butter and dough blast out on the front. A full bodied nutty malt profile that I always expect from a good german pils. Some light fruits and lingering bright yeast notes shine on the body. A touch of pepper finishes this one off.

Taste: Smooth, creamy malts on the front really pull the drinker in. The yeast has a very clean profile on the body with accents of butterscotch, prairie grass, and grains. The finish is a compilation of all the accents found in the body easily settling into the palate.

Mouthfeel: Full body with the creamy, buttery malts being the biggest player. Carbonation is a touch low but makes for a very easy drinking lager.

Overall: Excellent german pils from Metropolitan. New to my area and I am always welcoming of more well crafted lagers in an ale driven world. Definitely worth a shot.
