If malt and hops are the two poles of brewing, this beer is the gently spinning sweet spot between them. First, you’ll notice the spicy aromas of Perle and Hallertau hops. Then - wipe the foam off the tip of your nose - dive into the toasty flavors of Vienna and Munich malts. Dynamo starts strong and finishes crisp and smooth. The balanced flavors, aromas, and even the coppery-red tones of this beer go great with everything. Fear no pairing. The best time to enjoy Dynamo is when you’re thirsty. Dynamo Copper Lager goes great with pizza, neighborhood block parties, spring rolls, first dates, football games, whiskey, tapas, the Sunday newspaper, late-night burritos, veggie omelets, business lunches, grilled mushrooms, pretzels, political debate, corn-on-the-cob, classic sci-fi flicks, mixed greens, campfires, salmon, billiards, cherry pie, rock shows, pumpernickel, salsa, grand openings, peanuts, sewing bees, extra sharp cheddar cheese, and holidays.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Thanks to my girlfriend Molly for buying me a six pack by surprise, she’s so sweet. Pours light golden brown with a small white head. Aroma is very malty caramel and toast, really picking up those Vienna malts. Some subtle hops give it just a hint of spice. Flavor starts a very sweet caramel and lots of toast and a bit nutty. Finishes very smooth with very little hop presence or bitterness. Just a strong creamy malt character. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Not a bad beer, easy drinking and refreshing. Reminds me a lot of Fat Tire, just a little hoppier.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 Bottle from guyinchicago. pours a (shocker)copper color. Very malty on the nose. But along with the malt comes some aluminum foil notes...metallic is what I am trying to say. Flavor is malty, lagery and overall not that great. I am surprised to see the rating as high as it is.

Bottle sample from STLWill (Thanks!) Orange/yellow pour with a metallic aroma. Flavor was that of any standard run of the mill lager, but finished a little bitter.

[Bottle] shared by Skyview. Pours a clear deep gold with an effervescent white head. Aroma is slightly richer than the Flywheel, with a touch of caramel, and lots of lager yeast. Flavor is pretty much the same as the nose.

Skyview (5538) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade with guyinchicago. Pours a semi-clear light golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of golden and caramel multi-grain malt, some citrus, white bread and a touch of tropical fruit. Taste is light bodied, some carbonation with flavors of caramel malt, some flowery hops, light citrus zest and a touch of popcorn. Finish is semi-dry with a short lived caramel and flowery hops aftertaste. Has a tad extra hop bitterness for most Vienna style beers I’ve head but still a decent micro craft beer.

Found this one bottled at Binny’s in St. Charles. Hazy medium brown pour with a lacy, thin white head, light malty, apple and a touch of rosy hops in the nose, nice complex malt character, orange, pineapple, slightly spicy, with a fine, dry finish. This was a nice brew!

On tap @ Kuma’s. Pours orange with a thin head. Light aroma of sweet malt and a touch of hops. Balanced body that is refreshing to drink. I wish them luck.

Light amber with small head. Light caramel malts and solid bitterness to finish. Light sweetness, with a nice balance all around. Perfect six-pack beer to grab for a spring bbq.
