COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. Original Gravity: 13.6 Plato Bitterness: 29 IBU Color: 8.4 SRM ABV: 5.6%

Not bad - not good. Skunky lightness in here like a crapola beer, but maltiness brought it back, and so it was decent if you just drank it and didnít really think about it.

Narnad (1417) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Pours a clear orange color with a big puffy white head that hangs around for a little bit. Aroma has a toasted note but is overly dominated by a vegetable soup aroma (quite off putting in my opinion). Flavor has a very strong roasted note, some lager yeasty notes but again, the vegetable soup note rears its head in the flavor as well. Light body with a very clean, smooth texture and very low carbonation. Overall a pretty disappointing brew. The flavors just never came out to work in a harmonious way. I donít know if there was a flavor/aroma that was mixing to form the vegetable soup but it was really off putting for this brew. As a hometown brew, this fact only added to my disappointment.

Tap at Hop Leaf. Poured a rusty copper with a small off white head. Aroma was acid with some malts present. The aroma reminded me of blood, not pleasant. Flavor was pretty basic, some malts, a slight caramel flavor. Mediocre at best.

Dragonfly1 (461) - Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Bottle from TJís. More of a dark yellow than a copper. Aroma is grainy, corn kernels, with hints of berries. Taste is overwhelmingly MUSTY. Date on the bottle is.... nowhere to be found, so Iíll assume itís fresh, and if thatís the case Iíll take a pass on this going forward. The mustiness is up front, plus in the finish, kind of how a damp basement would taste if you could bottle it. Body is crisp, and there are other flavors of more light grain and corn, but overall this one isnít working well for me....

zgaier (1182) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Pours a clear amber with a white head and metallic, malty aroma. Taste is crisp, of toasted malts, caramel, and grains. Not much flavor and nothing special with this one.

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

This beer was really disappointing. For a local beer, and a craft brew at that, it was lacking in flavor and intensity. I would hope for a bigger taste in their variations on this classic style.
