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.

Thanks to immobilisme for the extra. You know what I like Bro!

Light copper color, absolutely bright, with a small fine head that leaves good lacing.

Graham cracker and a bit of herbal hops on the nose - very inviting. The flavor is light but complex enough to keep up the interest. Crisp bready malts with just the right hop twang. A bit of sweetness resolves with a light puckering bitterness.

Crisp light body. If I could only use a few words to describe this beer, crisp and refreshing come to mind.

For all you extreme ale drinkers out there (me included), this is a great lager to bring you back to earth - very refreshing and a reminder of how interesting a lighter beer can be.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a seidel mug.

A: Pours..well...copper. With a full white head that sticks around till the end.

S: Toast and earthy hops upfront, with some honey and raisons in the background.

T: Very tasty! There is a very pleasant melanoidin presence that gives this a rich, smooth taste throughout. Spicy hops finish this dry and crisp.

D: Drinkability is spot-on and I would love to see this in bigger formats (like mini-kegs) because this would be a great 'one beer-all day' brew.

Overall: This is one of the few lager styles that Americans seem to do pretty damned well. Hoppier versions like SABL are on one end; this is on the other. It relies on perfect balance and expert malt development to deliver the flavour. No room for flaws in this beer, and there really aren't any at all.
