COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep Amber red color, with a fragrant malt aroma. Flavorful notes of rich caramelized malt and noble hop flavors harmonize on the palate leading to a crisp clean finish. Named after one of Cleveland’s most respected safety directors, who frequented the brewpub’s bar during his tenure from 1935-1941 and, according to popular legend, was responsible for the bullet holes still evident today.

Brialliant clear dark amber,reddish ruby like a nice gem.Light head but nice froth,ring and some lacing. Candied carmel aroma with almonds/vanilla,fresh yeast,some cinnimon. The overall taste of this beer is very good,clean crisp malty carmel with some toffee or dark carmel/carmelized notes,maybe some butterscotch.Very smooth,with smooth hop flavor/bittering.This had the wow-factor upon drinking it.

BeerBunker (931) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours amber with an off-white head. Nice head retention. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is of caramel, bread, malt, and grass. Smells good. Taste is of caramel, grassy hops, and toffee. Has a bready malt backbone. Lingering grassy hop taste. Mouthfeel is light, and slightly creamy. Body is moderately carbonated, and slightly sticky. Tastes good, and it drinks real easy. I could definitely drink a few of these.

commonmac (676) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Tap pour at Butcher and the Boar. Bumped pint glass. Amber color... obviously with good lacing but minor unassuming head. Aroma is mostly malty and bready. Mouthfeel is thin syrupy and a little oily. Taste feels very much like a standard amber or Vienna lager. Malty with some roasted notes. Mostly sweetness with caramel and subtle toffee notes. Some bitterness at the end. Pretty decent for the style. This one feels pretty touchable.

Atom (1779) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2015
12oz bottle pours a dark clear Amber, with a small khaki head. Aroma of fruity hops, grains, with sweet caramel and toffee malts. Sweet malt flavors, caramel and toffee, with slightly bitter grassy and fruity hops, and beery lager yeast on the finish. Nice for the style.

Dacrza (635) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2015
DATE TASTED: June 14, 2015... GLASSWARE: Hennepin pokal... OCCASION: Cavs/Warriors Game 5--have a good feeling about this one, so I will pair it with a good--and Ohio-brewed--beer... APPEARANCE: Amber, almost ruby red, dark but mostly translucent; head is off-white, swift and forms a halo around an island... AROMA: a slam of caramel with cherry, raspberry and other fruity hints; the hops are not so present, but in a lager, I am not surprised... PALATE: speaking of style, unlike any Vienna I have had--full-bodied, balanced between the teeth and the tongue, and dry--almost a winelike finish; the ABV is clearly a force... TASTE: again, the strength of a pinot noir, with caramelized malts and pepper, chocolate, and some cherry qualities as well... OVERALL: as formidable a lager can get, in terms of flavor and strength--balanced and full, with a pleasant, drinkability; something of a dessert lager (?) that finishes an evening properly...now, if only the Cavs can do the same...

Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear deep amber red, quick 1 finger head, little to no lace or retention. Aroma of caramel. Taste is very sweet, muted earthy bitterness. Medium body, subtle carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes sweet. Tasting notes of grass, caramel, tree nuts, plum and toffee. Too sweet for me.

This is a decent dark beer. It has a hoppy after taste that kept me from rating any higher. The color is a lighter dark brown. Overall I thought it was okay and depending the situation may buy it again.
