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.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice copper color with creamy off white head. Very nice caramel and biscuits aroma. Taste is excellent. Nice sweet caramel, toffee, molasses, biscuits. Get a little bit of spiciness to it. Medium bodied with sticky mouthfeel. Very tasty. One of the best lagers I've had. As is the case with all the Great Lakes Beers I've, very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mrjaxson (294) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2014
Superior balance throughout, with the malts enticing the nose upon pouring and the hops barely winning out on the finish. Darn pretty to look at, too.

Lothore (551) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a deep copper color with a nice, 2 finger, off white head that leaves lots of lacing on then way down. S- Bready, dark fruit T- Sweet, slightly fruity, hints of roasted malt. A little too sweet on the back end for me. M- Medium bodied with ample carbonation. D- This is a decent brew however i’d like a little more of a hop kick to balance it out.
