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%

Bottle from a new Chicago brewer picked up at the Binnys in Orland Park, Illinois: Nice pour, a clear orange body with a tall off-white head. The aroma was sweet, lightly toasted malts with a touch of caramel. Just a bit of earthy hops are added to the flavor to keep all that rich sweetness in check. Nicely brewed.

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2009
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade with guyinchicago. Pours a semi-clear light golden amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of golden and caramel multi-grain malt, some citrus, white bread and a touch of tropical fruit. Taste is light bodied, some carbonation with flavors of caramel malt, some flowery hops, light citrus zest and a touch of popcorn. Finish is semi-dry with a short lived caramel and flowery hops aftertaste. Has a tad extra hop bitterness for most Vienna style beers Ive head but still a decent micro craft beer.

G: Poured into a Pilsner Urquell pilsener glass. A: Pours a transparent gold, typical pilsner color. The head is typical of the style, although slightly reddish, and measures about a finger and a half. Large rush of carbonation. Decent lacing as it goes down. S: Grainy and slightly sweet. A little grassy. T: Slightly grainy and sweet, following up on the nose. Not much at all of a hop presence, though it is slightly bitter. M: Starts out smooth with mild carbonation. No alcohol bite. A very light mouthfeel. D: In a style that is quite drinkable, although not the best tasting variety that Ive had. Its nice to support a local up-and-comer, and I really like the idea of the lager-only brewery, so Ill probably go with this one from time to time.

UPDATED: MAY 21, 2009 Thanks to my girlfriend Molly for buying me a six pack by surprise, shes so sweet. Pours light golden brown with a small white head. Aroma is very malty caramel and toast, really picking up those Vienna malts. Some subtle hops give it just a hint of spice. Flavor starts a very sweet caramel and lots of toast and a bit nutty. Finishes very smooth with very little hop presence or bitterness. Just a strong creamy malt character. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Not a bad beer, easy drinking and refreshing. Reminds me a lot of Fat Tire, just a little hoppier.

JPDIPSO (6093) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Lightly hazed amber to tan colored liquid. Small, but stable, off-white head. Grains and lightly toasted malt aromas. A hint of grassy hops as well. Fairly thin in feel, but doesnt seem watery. Actually has a lightly oily feel as it warms a bit. LIght sweet start with just a bit of caramel. Herbal hops in the middle dry things out. Finish and linger are earthy and dry. Lightly astringent in the linger. The late bite takes away from the overall smoothness, but still better than what I would have expected.

This is a local beer I tried on tap at a local bar. I remember this being much better in the bottle, rather light traditional German-esque lager, very refreshing and easy to drink. I support my local brewer!

theisti (4064) - Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2010
12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint at Dunlays in the logan square neighborhood - Chicago, Illinois. Pour is clear golden copper, with a nice white head. Aroma is nice soft floral hops, on top of clean cracker malt. Fresh, though a bit underwhleming. Taste is the nose, soft floral hops up front, decent backbone of malt in the middle, slight earth and mineral in the finish. Light to medium bodied, though a tad uncarbonated which made it a bit dead in the mouth.Taste broke down a bit as it warmed, though still nice enough.

Nice. Copper colores body with a thin clinging white head. The aroma is rather light but sweet. Medium palate with a decent punch of carbonation. Overall sweet flavor...caramel and brown sugar. Theres a slight bite at the end. Not a bad beer.
