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.

Reddish brown. Nutty aroma. Buttery, slightly roasty. Well balanced bitterness. This beer works well!

joet (2188) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - DEC 25, 2001
Some butter and softly sweet that bends in a good transition to a soft bitter. This is well balanced. The color is a brilliant red. Headless.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 20, 2001
Remarkably soft, creamy mouthfeel;’ unexpected but welcome in this smooth, easy lager. Nice lightly burnt caramel flavor - GREAT with pizza. Good session beer, another winner from Great Lakes.

This is one hell of a hearty, full bodied beer with a nice floral accompaniment to the nuttiness.

Aubrey (3442) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2001
Pure and professional. Untouchable. Nutty and fruity. Fairly intense and difficult to describe. Sweet, but complemented with alcohol well. Overall, quite the interesting and well-made brew.

Not my favorite style but again well done. The sweetness is not overwhelming

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.

Nice carmael malt flavor with some hops thrown in. Finishes smooth . Great lakes sure know what they’re doing.

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.
