Notes/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 Vanguard and Liberty hops. Then - wipe the foam off the tip of your nose - dive into the toasty flavor of Vienna malt. 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.

Copper Lager, appropriate to the name, pours a beautiful copper color with a nice and foamy white head.
The aroma is loaded with cracker, biscuit and toffee notes with a hint of spicy and floral hops.
The taste is creamy malt -- sweet and crackery with some spicy hop notes behind.
Mouthfeel is medium and remarkably smooth and a bit bubbly.
Overall, this is an outstanding lager. Balanced and beautiful.

As somebody who prefers lagers, to have this brewery dedicate itself to Germanic styles, including lagers, elevates it above other Chicago craft breweries. I enjoy the thick, slighty chewy malt notes in here. Hops are present, but they only support, not dominate. When I go out, I try to find a venue that has this beer, especially on tap. I should have this beer more often.
