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.

Extremely enjoyable Vienna Amber that’s worth the search to find it on tap. I regular drink the Eliot Ness and Dortmunder Gold every time I visit Cleveland, but have yet to try either (or any other Great Lakes) brew straight from the bottle although they appear to be readily available citywide. Sadly, these brews are near impossible to find west of the Rockies. Pours deep red with a real beefy head. Nice blend of hops and malt providing both an enjoyable smell and even better taste. Enjoyable all the way round.

Bottled. Just a notch below the porter, this is very malty-sweet on the nose, spectacular-looking like the other 2 GL brews I tried, creamy, caramel and oaky on the tongue. Can’t wait until this brewery is more available to me.

Beautiful amber lager which shows off some of the finest malt I’ve encountered. Complex caramel, smoky and toasted flavors which slide down on a creamy palate. Malt is rather like Mahr’s Ungespundet or Stoudt’s Gold, but more complex. Superb.

Big caramel nose from this deep red beer. The first word from my tasting notes says, "chewy". Teenie-tiny hops presence (35IBU). Pretty good with the sausage plate appetizer!!!

Vienna style lager . Amazing that this beer comes from Cleveland . I first had it there . I am delighted to see that my neighborhood deli. sells it by the sixer . It’s got a mature angle about it. the nuttyness is nice, especially with certain foods . It has a certain swarthyness that keeps me coming back for more. It’s great with hearty foods as well . Really the Summer-time refresher or anytime . Wish I could get it here in Western Canada !

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 A very tasty lager. Nice deep amber color as far as I could tell in the dark restaurant I tried it in. Fresh malty nose. Just a touch of hops but enough to balance the malt. Some vinous notes along with a bit of caramel and toffee complimented perfectly by a slick, buttery mouthfeel.

Dark amber color, very little head. Malty flavor and aroma - very clean. Hides the 6.2% ABV well. Not much hop flavor or aroma, but well-balanced bitterness. I’m not a big lager drinker, but this is one of my favorites.

A very nice aroma to it....and it’s got a great caramel taste. It leaves a very snappy aftertaste to it and makes you want more.
