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.

Poured a clear pale golden yellow. Since this was brought out to me by a waitress there was no noticeable head or lacing left by the time it got to my table. Has a nice wheat scent mixed with some floral and citrus hints. Has a slightly dry start with a crisp and clean finish. The finishing taste was a lot better than the beginning taste. I had completely forgot I had tried this beer before out of a bottle. Iím always one to say beer is better on tap but in this case I really didnít think so.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Very attractive amber color with a fluffy white head. The nose is caramel malt, and Continental hops and touches of roasty grain. Flavors pretty much followin line...roasted grain, sweet caramel malts, spicy continental floral hop bite, biscuits, dough, and very spritely carbonation. Another encouraging effort by a new and promising brewery in town. Now bring me an Alt!

On tap @ Kumaís. Pours orange with a thin head. Light aroma of sweet malt and a touch of hops. Balanced body that is refreshing to drink. I wish them luck.

drywallman (338) - 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.

Tmoney99 (11545) - 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.

rubbishystuff (1954) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Pretty good. Light enough to be easy drinking but flavorful enough to satisfy. Sometimes a little light in the body but nothing to be too concerned about. Serving: Bottle and tap

Lou Malnatiís, Chicago tap ($5.50): Pours an amberish color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts and a little bit of hops. Taste is pretty straightforward and was right what I needed after a very long walk. Obviously, there isnít much in the way of hops or anything. Caramel malts throughout. Nice and crisp at the same time. Well-balanced.
