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.

Pretty standard amber lager flavor, smooth and light. Not a lot of flavor, just some malts and caramel, and some fizz going down the throat. May have tasted better to me because it was complementary at Allegro Hotel (Chicago) happy hour.

Medium sweet flavor with notes of cereal, rich bread, light berries. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish with some toasted grains, caramel and light, leafy hops.

Reviewed from notes as I just found this next to the previous beer I just reviewed from my brother in law who lives in IL.
The three beers I had of this was poured into pilseners every time.
The appearance was a nice looking amber to copper color with a decent half fingered white foamy head that died practically immediately.
The smell had a decent looking roasted malt to bitter hops, it seemed well balanced to me. As it warms, there’s even a slight spiciness to it.
The taste had a nice sweet yet crisp maltiness running about my tastebuds. It seemed like the aftertaste had a long sweet roastiness running about it. There was a quick yet crisp dry finish.
On the palate, this one sits about a medium in body and shows a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, is this an altbier or a Vienna lager? Uh...kinda like the commercial description, I honestly don’t care as I’d have this again and would love to have it with some pepperoni and mushroom pizza.
