Brewed by:
Metropolitan Brewing
Illinois, United States

Style: Vienna Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Ok this beer has ALWAYS been my go-to. I love that I can get it anywhere. It's got this really pretty copper color, and it's persistent head stays pretty the whole way down.

Dang, sons. Can I drink this every day? I think I could.

They do a good job of consistency, which helps. I know I can always trust in buying a solid beer from these guys.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a modest head capping the amber colored liquid; lacing is sporadic

Smell: Malt forward, with caramel tones

Taste: Caramel flavors, up front, with some graininess building in the middle; the finish is rather sweet

Mouthfeel: Medium body with crisp carbonation

Overall: Pretty typical for an Amber Lager; too sweet for my palate with minimal bitterness; I really enjoyed the crisp mouthfeel, however

Bought at Binny's in Chicago last month; poured into a Sam Adams' Perfect Pint and let warm up for about 5 minutes.

A=Definitely not a copper color...a medium dark yellow, but an appealing white 3 finger head. Still, the appearance was very typical for a lager.

S=Faint aroma of honey, with a faint essence of uric acid. Not appealing.

T=The "Vienna" flavor was present, but much less intense than a Boston Lager. Also a sweetness. A few sips had an off taste to it.

M=Less body than a Boston Lager; a bit of slickness to it as well.

O=Not a horrible beer, but not nearly comparable to a Boston Lager or Sprecher Amber. Won't buy again.
