If malt and hops are the two poles of brewing, this beer is the gently spinning sweet spot between them. First, youíll 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 youíre 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.

This one is a pretty generic American amber lager. There is literally nothing to it it isnít mind-blowing.

Heavy alt-malting, rusty honey lager and what. Grainy, sweet. Full but drinkable, golden-copper and middle of road. flavorful, but tinny

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured out of the bottle. Copperish color with very little head. Not too much going on with the aroma, slight hops and malts with a tad bit of spicyness. Didnít pay much attention to this one and neither should you.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pour an amber body with an off white head. Mild head retention. Sweet malty lagered tones, with a hint of fruit. Light bitter tones, a bit herbal and floral. Light bodied with a mild sweetness to finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.0 A: Clear copper orange color. One and a half fingers of white head falls quickly and leaves no lacing.
3.5 S: Grainy with a strong cidery sweetness. Hops are grassy, but arenít very powerful. The apple cider flavor, despite being considered a flaw, works very well in this one.
4.0 T: Grainy again with underlying caramel tones. The cider in the nose is only barely detectable in the taste. Again, grassy hops. Simple, yet tasty.
3.5 M: Light body. Good moderate carbonation. This could have a thicker body and be creamier, but not too bad.
4.0 D: Easy going down and refreshing. If this was meant to be super flavorful and complex, then they screwed up, but if this was meant to be a good thirst quenching beer, then they did just fine.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I like this beer as it pours dark amber. It shows ice notes of spicy hops on the upfront palate and then give a light sweet feel on the finish. I do enjoy this beer and will try it again for sure.

120z bottle into std pint. Clear copper color, minimal head. Havenít had a lot in this style but itís not a bad beer. Doesnít blow me away. Thin. A little bit of a finish thatís tough to describe - bitter maybe but not in a bad way. Reminds me a little bit of Victoria which I tried recently - Iíd go with this one. May try a few more in the sytle and re-rate.

Nice. Copper colores body with a thin clinging white head. The aroma is rather light but sweet. Medium palate with a decent punch of carbonation. Overall sweet flavor...caramel and brown sugar. Thereís a slight bite at the end. Not a bad beer.

G: Poured into a Pilsner Urquell pilsener glass.
A: Pours a transparent gold, typical pilsner color. The head is typical of the style, although slightly reddish, and measures about a finger and a half. Large rush of carbonation. Decent lacing as it goes down.
S: Grainy and slightly sweet. A little grassy.
T: Slightly grainy and sweet, following up on the nose. Not much at all of a hop presence, though it is slightly bitter.
M: Starts out smooth with mild carbonation. No alcohol bite. A very light mouthfeel.
D: In a style that is quite drinkable, although not the best tasting variety that Iíve had. Itís nice to support a local up-and-comer, and I really like the idea of the lager-only brewery, so Iíll probably go with this one from time to time.
