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 Clevelandís most respected safety directors, who frequented the brewpubís bar during his tenure from 1935-1941 and, according to popular legend, was responsible for the bullet holes still evident today.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2009 Bottle (BB 03/11/09). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium to dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie, toasted light bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot), with notes of peach and honey. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Uncomfortably sweet, but otherwise very nice. Lovely to sniff, but kind of difficult to drink much of it.

toasty, caramel, sweet and sour all malt goodness. Absolutley delicious lager..superbly made. I like the hop tinges and slightly more crisp nature of Riverwest Stein, but not by a lot. Wonderful.

Ruby pour with a creamy head.Sweet malty nose. Nice creamy palate that is very light on the tongue. Malt seems to be the name of the game with just a little hop bite at the end. Very nice beer. Thanks to hopsrus for this one.

Too malty for my tastes. The dortmunder is definitely the standout in their lager range.

An almost perfect balance of malt and hops lead to a smoothness seldom found in other medium bodied lagers. The caramelized malt seems to add just the right amount of sweetness to the brew. The finish is so remarkably clean it immediately leaves you wanting more. A fine Cleveland product that even someone from Pittsburgh could like!

A pretty decent beer. A little light for my liking, but still enjoyable. Nice sweet finish and a very clean taste overall.

The third Great Lakes offering that Iíve tried, and they havenít failed to impress. Imagine if someone told you twenty years ago that you could get great beer from Cleveland.

Think Theakstonís old peculiar, and add hops. Nice color, kept a good mouth feel, but I just didnít like the flavor. Not necessarily a beer, but I would recommend the peculiar first
