Generously dry-hopped with a blend of Mosaic and Saphir hops, Metropolis Lager unites classic German-style brewing and West Coast innovation to create a refreshing yet flavorful lager. Metropolis pours a radiant gold, with tropical fruit aromas and a delicate floral note. Caramel malts lend a subtle sweetness to balance the dry, crisp character of the lager yeast.

Well, the can is all nice and stuff like, well, the can of the girl in front of me in my bikram yoga class. Lolz, nah… Raul is foolin’, he doesn’t do that dumb stuff. On the real though, the can is pleasant on the eye like Fritz Lang directing a silent. And then when your boy took a sip, well, hot damn - it’s not all that bad. A hop forward Rice Lager is a bit weird, but so was this one chick I met during a late Brooklyn night - and at the time I was feeling it. Ok, either way, I’m out.

this was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a hazy bronzed to golden color. A one and a half finger white foamy head started and dissipated fairly quickly. Spotty lacing clung in a semi-bubbly manner. Carbonation was seen rising at a decent pace. The smell had a sweet grassy hop bleeding into light bready/biscuit malts. The taste copied the smell lending a hand to a sweet stickiness rolling into the aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable grassy feel over my tongue. Overall, pretty nice India pale lager worthy of coming back to.

L: Pours a gold color with hints of dark orange, has a nice fizzy medium sized head that dissipates pretty quickly, leaving a small patch of white on top of the beer. Beer is a little hazy but has nice sheets of lacing all around the glass.

S: Sweet orange, some orange rind, notes of floral and weedy hops, with a toasted grain and slight bit of caramel in the background.

T: Sweet orange, with notes of bitter orange rind, intermixed with some floral hops that taste a little weedy and earthy too, finishes with notes of toasted grain and caramel, and a fairly strong bitterness. I wish the bitterness was toned down a bit and the hops tasted a little less like weeds. The bitterness does coat the tongue.

F: Light body but not quite as crisp as I was hoping.

O: This is a very hoppy lager if you like hoppy lagers this one is for you, but I was hoping for something a little more balanced.

From an undated bottle. Pours a golden color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Smells of grass and dry hops. Light feel due to the carbonation. Starts with crisp lager taste, finishes with mild hop bitterness. Not a huge fan of lagers, but this is good for the style.
