Steve of N21 left this review about Dynamo Dundee

Formerly a keg only bar called the Star and Garter it re-opened in December 2018 as another Scottish outlet from the Stonehaven craft brewer Six Degree North. It doesn’t look like they changed the fine traditionally-furnished interior much and this thin bar has some green leather seating to the front and some decorative glass panels to the rear separating the small saloon room at the back. What they did put in is 24 craft taps along the bar and a couple of flat screens which detail what is on them. For my visit this included twelve of their own beers and then the majority of the others were from other Scottish craft brewers like Drygate with a couple of single beers from Siren and Magic Rock.
I tried one of the stouts from Six degrees and to be honest it wasn’t one of the best I’ve had. But again with the majority of bars in Dundee still dispensing the standard draft products that were available in the old Star and Garter, this is another good addition for increasing beer choice in Dundee.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Dynamo Dundee

Craft beer outlet with a narrow bar and a small saloon at the back. Both parts are quite traditional in appearance, especially with the dark-wood bar-backs, but this one is definitely aimed at a younger market. No real ale on handpump, although it is not possible to determine whether any of the 24 taps are key-keg or just keg. However, the choice of styles from owners Six°North and a wide range of guests is very impressive, and I enjoyed my pint of Skeleton Blues US wheat beer (£4.85).

David Ross left this review about The Star & Garter

This consists of a long, narrow, dark bar with a tiny lounge through a door at the back. There is a good range of beer on draught, including McEwan's 80 Shilling, Guinness, Belhaven Best, McEwan's IPA and Tennent's, Stella Artois and Heverlee lagers, as well as Magner's cider. With the exception of the uninspiring Tay Bar on the platform, this is, probably, the nearest pub to Dundee Railway Station, which is worth knowing if you're travelling to the city by train.
