Metropolitan Brewing is in Chicago, Illinois. All of the bottle art is reminiscent of the 1927 German film Metropolis by Fritz Lang. The beer pours light copper and amber in color, a bit like the color of a dark cream soda. There is a touch of haze. There is a half inch of white foam, with a bit of creaminess. The aroma is a bright caramel malt, with a light touch of nuttiness. The taste is light caramel malt with a bitter hop finish. A nice start, but not all the way there, kind of boring overall.
