This beer pours an orange-yellow color with a quickly dissipating head. It has a pungent, somewhat hoppy smell and a light, mellow wheat taste. While I don't like the smell, the beer has an agreeable, though somewhat watered taste. Overall, it's alright. 5:48PM PT

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.

For the carnivore: The light caramelization of german malts will complement char-grilled bratwurst or juicy burgers. Add a slice of pineapple or bacon to stand up to its bold west coast hops.
Cheese pairing: Salty cheeses with a hint sweetness, like a dry-aged cheddar, will offset the dryness of the lager yeast.
For a fresh catch: To bring out the aromatic citrus and tropical fruit notes of Mosaic and Pacific Gem hops, pair with grilled salmon, ceviche, or fish tacos with mango salsa.
