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.

Lou Malnati’s, 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 isn’t much in the way of hops or anything. Caramel malts throughout. Nice and crisp at the same time. Well-balanced.

Ughsmash (7505) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bottled. Poured smoky orange with a short, dense, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up bready and a touch of molasses malt with mild earthy and soapy hoppage around.. soft, but not that interesting. The flavor found chewy bread and biscuity sweetness at the core, with mild earth and spicy bitterness around.. more bready notes and a hint of molasses on the dry finish.. well-balanced and tasty. Lighter-bodied, dry, and somewhat grainy on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. aiight stuff.

Sweet caramel aroma. Pours a mild amber color with thick beige head. Caramel, sweet malt, with a hit of alcohol up front....finishes somewhat clean with some mild hop bitterness. My favorite style of beer...but I have had better....not bad.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear copper with minimal head. Aroma is pretty weak. A little caramel and straw. Taste is light sweet. Caramel with a little spice. Full bodied with a slightly thick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Not standout but drinkable.

Sample at Hopleaf. Clear amber color with a thin white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt, caramel and mild grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a roast malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

adnielsen (10424) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle @ home via rotbox, thanks to TheAlum (I think). Pours a burnt orange appearance with a thin light brown head. A lot of toasty and husky grains in the nose. A fair amount of sweetness and a touch of citrus. Some grass. Decent mouth feel and finish but there is a lot of sweetness on the tongue. Grassy and doughy. Honey and toast. Decent carbonation. A bit old but decent.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Gladly bought a sixer to support Chicago brewing. Pours a lovely clear glowing golden with lots of bubbles and a medium sudsy white head. Sweet malty aroma, bit of caramel, bread, light noble hops. Flavor follows, caramel, munich malt, a bit bready but sweet, light hop bitterness. Long munich caramel malt aftertaste. Fuller in body than the flywheel, slightly syrupy, and not quite as crisp. Bring on the dark lagers!

Frank (3846) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2010
From the description, it seems Metropolitan was going for an easy drinking everyday lager and that’s just what this is. Pours a copper color (imagine that!) with only a small white head. Grassy, herbal hops are the focus of the notes w/ some grainy notes playing a back up role. Flavor is more malt centric w/ a nice Vienna malt character. The hops take on a more floral aspect as well. Light bodied and unfortunately a bit undercarbonated which makes it feel a little sluggish on the tongue. This is a good beer and could be a great beer w/ some adjustment. I’d drink it every day.
