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.

G: Poured into a Pilsner Urquell pilsener glass. A: Pours a transparent gold, typical pilsner color. The head is typical of the style, although slightly reddish, and measures about a finger and a half. Large rush of carbonation. Decent lacing as it goes down. S: Grainy and slightly sweet. A little grassy. T: Slightly grainy and sweet, following up on the nose. Not much at all of a hop presence, though it is slightly bitter. M: Starts out smooth with mild carbonation. No alcohol bite. A very light mouthfeel. D: In a style that is quite drinkable, although not the best tasting variety that I’ve had. It’s nice to support a local up-and-comer, and I really like the idea of the lager-only brewery, so I’ll probably go with this one from time to time.

pours light amber and a little hazy aromas of pale malts and hops flavors are of caramel,bread,and hops just a little light and thin to qualify as a world class veinna

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Thanks to my girlfriend Molly for buying me a six pack by surprise, she’s so sweet. Pours light golden brown with a small white head. Aroma is very malty caramel and toast, really picking up those Vienna malts. Some subtle hops give it just a hint of spice. Flavor starts a very sweet caramel and lots of toast and a bit nutty. Finishes very smooth with very little hop presence or bitterness. Just a strong creamy malt character. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Not a bad beer, easy drinking and refreshing. Reminds me a lot of Fat Tire, just a little hoppier.

JPDIPSO (5587) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Lightly hazed amber to tan colored liquid. Small, but stable, off-white head. Grains and lightly toasted malt aromas. A hint of grassy hops as well. Fairly thin in feel, but doesn’t seem watery. Actually has a lightly oily feel as it warms a bit. LIght sweet start with just a bit of caramel. Herbal hops in the middle dry things out. Finish and linger are earthy and dry. Lightly astringent in the linger. The late bite takes away from the overall smoothness, but still better than what I would have expected.

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!

theisti (3856) - Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2010
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.

Nice. Copper colores body with a thin clinging white head. The aroma is rather light but sweet. Medium palate with a decent punch of carbonation. Overall sweet flavor...caramel and brown sugar. There’s a slight bite at the end. Not a bad beer.

Poured into a pint glass. 3.0 A: Clear copper orange color. One and a half fingers of white head falls quickly and leaves no lacing. 3.5 S: Grainy with a strong cidery sweetness. Hops are grassy, but aren’t very powerful. The apple cider flavor, despite being considered a flaw, works very well in this one. 4.0 T: Grainy again with underlying caramel tones. The cider in the nose is only barely detectable in the taste. Again, grassy hops. Simple, yet tasty. 3.5 M: Light body. Good moderate carbonation. This could have a thicker body and be creamier, but not too bad. 4.0 D: Easy going down and refreshing. If this was meant to be super flavorful and complex, then they screwed up, but if this was meant to be a good thirst quenching beer, then they did just fine.

Bottle thanks to motortoddhead. Amber in color. Skunky hops, grain, toasted malt, and caramel corn. Clean toasted malt with mild sweetness and round, clean bitterness on finish. Some lingering caramel in addition to the hops. Lightly dry. Digging a little of that raw grain malt flavor. Pretty good.
