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.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Agreat beer and even better with food. Great Lakes does beer right and this brew is a fine example of their work. Closer to a typical -- though excellent -- American amber ale than a true Vienna lager though. Chewy and fruity with a great balance!

I recall this having a dark red color. Seemed extra harsh to me at the time, perhaps I got a bad pour?

This beer pours an amber color with tons of carbonation on the sides of the glass and a small head that oddly centers itself in the center. The aroma is not very strong but I can sense home hints of fruit and light malts. The taste is amazingly smooth and enjoyable. It's a little sweet and the carbonation makes it more interesting. The aftertaste is sweet, but reminescent of something earthy - can't pinpoint it. Very good beer. I could drink this one all night long.

BBB63 (6051) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2003
Nice reddish amber color with minimal head, no lacing, medium-bodied. Aroma hints of caramel, ripe pears, dates, and yes, eiswein. Very nice. Beautifully balanced between tart and sweet, a malty presence followed by a hoppy twang. Creamy mouthfeel and clean, dry finish. Very well made, highly recommended.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUN 6, 2003
Lagering at it's finest. She pours smooth and thunderheaded from the tap but calmes to a nice stratus-cloud that lingers 'til the end. Deep chestnest/amber color that's well backed by mellow hops, brown sugar, caramel apple malts and bready yeasts. This brew has a well balanced hoppy-yeasty prescence and is a great alternative to a market full of ales. Eliot Ness, you are one crafty bastard.

Brownish red color,nice tal tan head that seems to be taking it's time to die down.The aroma is malty sweet,hoppy and some what citrusy.Nice flavor medium sweet,pretty hoppy but not in an over powering manner but quite pleasant.the feel is some what thin meaning a slight watery feel.This has a nice sweet malt hop after taste that has some decent lasting power.Really make me wish i had more of these brews.Thanks to Jskendzel for this one.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Bountiful, fluffy head with wonderful lacing throughout. Looks beautiful, clear amber color. Surprising hop aroma. Doughy flavor and a sweet, crisp finish. A touch of alcohol. Very enjoyable lager.

Foamy head that dissipates quickly, but with nice lacing. Great brown red color. Good flavor with roasted hops, touch of caramel and nice hops in the finish. Much better than expected.

fraternie (824) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2003
Amber colored body, thin head. Sweet fruity, malty aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel, very rich malt, sugary and toasty. Slightly hoppy finish, somewhat metallic and lingering.
