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.

Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of honey, straw and a hint of spice. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a watery finish. Flavors of honey, straw and light earthiness with a smooth watery honey finish.

Pours a clear orange with about a finger of off-white foamy head. Some light malts and cereal to the nose, fairly faint odor. Slightly sweet grain taste that fades into a fairly standard bitter aftertaste. Fairly crisp, not a bad beer for a hot day.

ccex (908) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2013
12 oz bottle pours a clear light copper color with decent off-white head and a little lacing. Aroma starts with caramel malts, then citrus hops. Taste is at first sweet, with a slightly bitter and nutty finish. Nothing outrageous here, but enjoyable none the less.

TheAlum (5575) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2009
16 oz draft poured on tap at Binnys South Loop (chicago, I’ll). Pours a moderate amberish hue, slight haze, moderate offwhite head that sticks around and laces, and well carbonated. Aromas are a bit or german hoppiness, light carmelized malts, a touch of malt stink. Initial has a good body for the style, light carmel malts balanced by german hoppiness, that bitters a bit on the finish, and the stink comes through. Pilsner malts? Where is the Vienna Spice? Finishes a touch toast and a touch hop. Ok, a good fresh replacement for sam adams but nothing to write home about. I am excited for and worried about this brewery at the same time. Cheers.

[Bottle] shared by Skyview. Pours a clear deep gold with an effervescent white head. Aroma is slightly richer than the Flywheel, with a touch of caramel, and lots of lager yeast. Flavor is pretty much the same as the nose.

On tap at Hop Leaf, Chicago. Pours a light amber. Light sweet malt flavor & aroma. Not bad but there were too many others great options

Bottle courtesy of msante79 – thanks Mark. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. The nose is caramel malt and earthy hops. The taste pretty much follows suit. Medium bodied. An ok beer. Thanks again Mark!

Beerman6686 (4206) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2009
This one poured as you might have guessed a copper color with an off white head. Aroma was slightly roasted malts with some sweetness. Flavor was smooth german malt with some notes of grassy and herbal hops.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Pours clear brilliant copper, strong 1 finger head. Aroma is yeasty bread, buttery biscuits, some spicy woody hop notes. Taste is very bready and biscuity with some spice, finishes minerally and toasty. Body is creamy smooth, medium, bodied, lower than average carbonation, biscuity dry finish. Overall, pretty good but pales in comparison to Ironworks and Flywheel which I have enjoyed recently.

sigh_borg (82) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours crystal clear gold with tiny head that dissipates quickly (maybe a bad pour?). Aroma is mild hops and malt, with some fruitness that I can’t identify. Taste is nicely balanced; primarily sweet with a hint of bitter that increases through the finish. Mouthfeel is full, more than I’m used to with a lager. Overall refreshing and solid but I wouldn’t get excited about drinking it. Don’t know why people are hating on this beer so much; perhaps I’m just not experienced enough with tasting and rating lagers.
