Brew Review: Metropolitan Krankshaft

My reviews today are going to be slightly skewed.  I took a trip out to Chicago recently, so my obvious move was to get beers that aren’t readily available in DC.  I don’t mean to tease you with these things, I’m just trying to enlighten you to what’s out there, and hopefully you’ll be able to get these soon.

Metropolitan Brewing is a small brewery based out of Chicago (don’t hold your breath on this one showing up out here).  I picked up their Kolsch to quench my thirst over the hot weekend.  And, in all honesty, I’d be hard-pressed to find a better one.

The Krankshaft is pale yellow in color and has a mild wheat aroma.  The flavor was perfect for a Kolsch.  Crisp and light with a mild citrus flavor.  Very light, and very refreshing.  If I had to come up with something similar around here, I’d go with Mad Fox’s Kolsch.

If you find yourself in Chicago on a hot summer day, go with this!
