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.

Remember when Yuengling was the cool amber lager to drink? Remember when it fell off a cliff? Eliot Ness is on top of that cliff now and isn’t going to fall off of it. It’s a beautiful amber color (duh) and is as smooth as it is refreshing.

Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass was red amber. Off-White head. Nose of caramel malts and maybe something like nuts. Medium body. Very smooth mouth feel. Flavor is malty. Not much finish. Nothing wrong here. but not exciting. Very drinkable however.

Not too much aroma, maybe caramel. Taste is caramel malts, berries, some light peppery rye spices, and light grassy hops.

scarletfire65 (1272) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle at home. Light alcohol phenols on the nose, along with buttery caramel malts. Medium bodied, sweet underneath, clean bready malts, dry finish with a twang of turpentine and pineapple. Seriously.
