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.

On 4/3/01 I considered this as not ’my mug of beer but it did get better as I drank more.’ I’ve had it a few times since. It is a nice hoppy beer. Flavorful. Not as hoppy as the Burning River or Nosferatu, but a nice beer.

Brent (116) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - SEP 25, 2001
Mildly sweet nose with a sweet, tangy finish. Mild with moderate hops showing up at the end. Well moderated and rather ale-like, almost Scottish.

Oakes (12551) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2001
Rich, deep amber colour; chewy nose of fresh malt; crisp, with good, evenly balanced malt flavours, balanced by toasty notes and a well-structured bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 This could be the best beer in this style that i have ever tasted. It is my only perfect score and deservedly so. Everything about this beer was good. Great Lakes could be the best small brewery in the united states.

A silky texture runs throughout the heady cycle of deep malt and sharp hops. A fine brew!
