COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If malt and hops are the two poles of brewing, this beer is the gently spinning sweet spot between them. First, youll 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 youre 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%

This beer was really disappointing. For a local beer, and a craft brew at that, it was lacking in flavor and intensity. I would hope for a bigger taste in their variations on this classic style.

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.

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. Im always one to say beer is better on tap but in this case I really didnt think so.

Pretty standard amber lager flavor, smooth and light. Not a lot of flavor, just some malts and caramel, and some fizz going down the throat. May have tasted better to me because it was complementary at Allegro Hotel (Chicago) happy hour.

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.

Metropolitan knows how to do lagers. This is, sadly one of the lesser varieties. A slightly funky aroma , though its barely discernible. The flavor is lemongrass and wheat.

Metropolitan makes some great beers. Caramel, citrus, nuts... nice blend/balance of hop & malt.
