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 a deep amber in color with a tall head of just off-white foam. The aroma is malty, a touch of nuttiness, tangy yeast. The taste is tangy caramel and sweet potato malt with a moderately bitter finish. The Metropolitan beers all have nice qualities, you can taste the potential, but they all fall just a touch short, and so does this one.
