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.

12oz bottle 3/18/09 (Sam’s Wine & Spirits-Downers Grove)-Pours a medium golden body with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of hops, malt, and caramel. Taste of the same with a nice roasted malt flavor coming in the middle and lasting through the end. This medium bodied brew is a nicely balanced beer with great flavors. Nice job.

Picked up at Binny’s Glen Ellyn. Light orange pour with small white head. Caramelly aroma, with german hops and some sweet malt. Flavor is crisp and slightly caramelly. Nice finish of bitter hops. Dug this brew and am glad for more chicago brews.

12 oz. bottle. Nice first effort by a new Chicago brewer. Bright Vienna malt smell in the pour, matching beer color, thin layer of bubbles. Dials back the hops to let some crunchy, toasty malts to the foreground. Fills me up pretty well. A bit of German hop pepper builds up on my soft palate. Worth presenting and serving as a good new Chicago beer, while all the sports and tourist venues keep spewing Miller-Bud.

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.

monkeychugg55 (1028) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Clear copper with a small white head that lasts a while. Slighly bready aroma, with sweet toasted malt and some mellow floral hops. Nice crisp flavor with more citrus on the finish than the aroma had suggested. Pretty refrezhin.

tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2009
On tap at Lunar Brewing for the Metropolitan tapping. Poured a clear, deep reddish/gold tone, with a slowly diminishing, white head and nice, clingy lacing. The nose had strong malt tones with a touch of toastiness and noble hop aroma. The flavor added to these a light hop bitterness. Lively carbonation. Finished clean and lightly dry. Very quaffable.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle from a new Chicago brewer picked up at the Binny’s in Orland Park, Illinois: Nice pour, a clear orange body with a tall off-white head. The aroma was sweet, lightly toasted malts with a touch of caramel. Just a bit of earthy hops are added to the flavor to keep all that rich sweetness in check. Nicely brewed.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade with guyinchicago. Pours a semi-clear light golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of golden and caramel multi-grain malt, some citrus, white bread and a touch of tropical fruit. Taste is light bodied, some carbonation with flavors of caramel malt, some flowery hops, light citrus zest and a touch of popcorn. Finish is semi-dry with a short lived caramel and flowery hops aftertaste. Has a tad extra hop bitterness for most Vienna style beers I’ve head but still a decent micro craft beer.
