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. Original Gravity: 13.6 Plato Bitterness: 29 IBU Color: 8.4 SRM ABV: 5.6%

16 oz draft poured on tap at Binnys South Loop (chicago, Iíll). 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 courtesy of msante79 Ė 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!

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.

FullObs (136) - Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2011
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.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JUN 8, 2011
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.

Copper pour from bottle. Musty smell. Carmel and sweet taste. Not bad but wouldn't seek it out ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
