COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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: FEB 17, 2010 ( Draught & 12oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59 ) Pours a clear copper body with a tall dense off-white head. Aroma of earth, basement, grass, toasted grain, and florals. Flavor of grain, grass, florals, honey, and caramel.

BMan1113VR (7903) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 6, 2009
Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a white head that fades over a clear golden body. Aroma of rain, honey and sweet bread. Taste is grainy, with honey. Fizzy and dry. Forgettable.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. I am not sure if my rating was so low because of the order in which we tasted these but I was not a fan. Tastes like over ridiculously carbonated corny trash water. Maybe an off bottle?

Cask Stillage from the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 24/09/2009 Some hop aroma. Golden amber coloured and fruity with a little dryness and bitterness in a crisp malt finish.

Tmoney99 (11828) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Draft sample at RB - Chicago. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral hoppy aroma. Medium body with a thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a small bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable session brew.

MrBunn (2561) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle that starts out looking dingy gold and ends with a color that a generous observer might call copper (on some sort of limited color wheel). Head is a small film of tiny bubbles and aromas are grassy with some caramel and biscuit maltiness. Flavor is dominated by watered down biscuit with a bit of honey and a little bit of a grassy presence in the finish. It’s good enough, but kind of boring.

Beerman6686 (5284) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2009
This one poured as you might have guessed a copper color with an off white head. Aroma was slightly roasted malts with some sweetness. Flavor was smooth german malt with some notes of grassy and herbal hops.

andyhwcinc (1648) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2009
This is a local beer I tried on tap at a local bar. I remember this being much better in the bottle, rather light traditional German-esque lager, very refreshing and easy to drink. I support my local brewer!

drywallman (342) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2009
This one poured a dark amber or copper, with a shortlived white head. Grainy but biscuity. Just right for a lager in mouthfeel, and then the grassy finish. A good session brew.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle from BeerBunker. Thanks! Toasty malt nose, caramel, and a little grass. Pours hazy copper with a lasting frothy head. Nice and toasty. Grass and a little pepper. Not complex, but tasty. Nice light lingering grass. Lively carbonation. A little lingering toast. Solid crisp finishing lager.
