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.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint at Dunlay’s in the logan square neighborhood - Chicago, Illinois. Pour is clear golden copper, with a nice white head. Aroma is nice soft floral hops, on top of clean cracker malt. Fresh, though a bit underwhleming. Taste is the nose, soft floral hops up front, decent backbone of malt in the middle, slight earth and mineral in the finish. Light to medium bodied, though a tad uncarbonated which made it a bit dead in the mouth.Taste broke down a bit as it warmed, though still nice enough.

Dark copper colored body with a white head. Nose is caramel with some fresh bread dough. There is also some nice almond character. The taste is doughy with caramel and a little hint of celery. There are a few black pepper notes. Pleasant and sweet, this is a smooth drinker.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I don’t get why people didn’t seem to like this... She’s a very attractive clear copper lager with a frothy white two inch head falling quickly to no lacing. The nose is of malty burnt/brown sugar with citrusy undertones of orange peel, or perhaps grapefruit, though the character develops into a more grainy (crystal malty) and toasted aroma. The mouthfeel is initially light and silky, with a carbonated teeth on the middle and finish. She tastes like a twist of orange peel over a distinctly malty backbone: the maltiness comes at the start, until the fizz carries a bitter citrus to the end with a very dry finish.

Beautiful copper color. Caramel flavor with nutty notes and very restrained but noticeable hoppiness. Slightly roasted notes as well. Somewhat dull but pleasing finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the description, it seems Metropolitan was going for an easy drinking everyday lager and that’s just what this is. Pours a copper color (imagine that!) with only a small white head. Grassy, herbal hops are the focus of the notes w/ some grainy notes playing a back up role. Flavor is more malt centric w/ a nice Vienna malt character. The hops take on a more floral aspect as well. Light bodied and unfortunately a bit undercarbonated which makes it feel a little sluggish on the tongue. This is a good beer and could be a great beer w/ some adjustment. I’d drink it every day.

12 oz bottle, someone brought over for the superbowl. Nothing special but at least its from Chicago. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. The nose is caramel malt and earthy hops. The taste pretty much follows suit. Medium bodied. An ok beer.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours a hazy light amber with a white head. Aroma of some faint toasty notes and light maltiness. Flavor is the same as aroma with a little hop personality. Mouth feel is light bodied. Overall, not all that bad...
