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.

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.

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 canít identify. Taste is nicely balanced; primarily sweet with a hint of bitter that increases through the finish. Mouthfeel is full, more than Iím used to with a lager. Overall refreshing and solid but I wouldnít get excited about drinking it. Donít know why people are hating on this beer so much; perhaps Iím just not experienced enough with tasting and rating lagers.

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.

Copper pour from bottle. Musty smell. Carmel and sweet taste. Not bad but wouldn't seek it out

Tis beer, folks is my go to. Itís good. And itís predictable. I think they do a good job of consistency.
Tis beer has a really nice copper color to it. Itís got a really nice persistent head that lasts until the end. Gives a pretty lacing in the glass.
I could drink this every day.

Poured out of the bottle. Copperish color with very little head. Not too much going on with the aroma, slight hops and malts with a tad bit of spicyness. Didnít pay much attention to this one and neither should you.

120z bottle into std pint. Clear copper color, minimal head. Havenít had a lot in this style but itís not a bad beer. Doesnít blow me away. Thin. A little bit of a finish thatís tough to describe - bitter maybe but not in a bad way. Reminds me a little bit of Victoria which I tried recently - Iíd go with this one. May try a few more in the sytle and re-rate.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a white head that fades over a clear golden body. Aroma of rain, honey and sweet bread. Taste is grainy, with honey. Fizzy and dry. Forgettable.
