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 25, 2003 Malty, flavorful, buttery with a hint of sourness and considerable floral hop bitterness. This stuff is remarkable! Where can I get me some more?

Very drinkable. Malty flavor balanced with light noble hop flavor and aroma. Slightly buttery but finishes clean.

My choice of the great Great Lakes beers. Cleveland is a city where I have many cousins and good warm memories of rich conversation and laughter. This beer calls those moments to mind as it too is rich and warm, malty without being overpowering. Yum!

Nice amber color and slight aroma to it. Light head that doesn’t hold very well. Nice taste to it, lighter and slightly tangy. Prefer this to Bell’s

A monstrous amber with a huge malt density. Tastes very smoky and had it with the breweries pizza,... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

an overall decent beer...balanced pretty well, the malt flavor is definitely there, but still, i just didnt enjoy this as much as everyone else..perhaps it’s not my favorite style.

I am continually impressed with the Great Lakes Brewing Company! I thought the Edmund Fitzgerald was the top of the line - but this one is damn close. A must try!
