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.

Great Lakes is one of my favorite breweries. Very flavorful but a little bitter for my liking.

Had a glass on tap as part of a flight at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Dark color. This is very nice, but on the sweet side for me.

A solidily malt-forward beer with some caramel and biscuts on the nose. A solid amber with hints of hops (I was expecting more hops)

Bottle. Pours cherry red, no head. A: candied fruit. T: caramel red apple, a little sweet on the finish. P: light, juicy feel with a medium carb and body. Refreshing great example of the style. I would definitely get this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours a beautiful amber. Caramel malt aroma. Surprising nice bitterness to balance the sweet malts. Finishes clean. Really good lager.

Good example of a Vienna lager; however slightly strong in alcohol content and bitterness. This is OK with me, but the beer finishes with a lingering bitterness.

A very great flavor spot on for style, this is a beer I would recommend to anyone without hesitation, a great feel to it along with a enjoyable abv

scotchzombie (315) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Pours slightly hazy dark amber with a moderate yellowed-white head that settles to a half-finger. Wettish lacing that coats more than laces. Aroma is an appealing blend of bready and caramel malts with a bit of tanginess. Taste follows the nose but also brings out some mild ripe bitter fruit and Noble hops. Balanced bitter-malt aftertaste. Very crisp mouthfeel. An amber lager with unusual depth for the style. Good session beer (but watch the ABV). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeerBeforeH20 (128) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Great Amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of grass,malts, and caramel. Taste is strong with sweet malts, nice caramel flavor with a light hop finish. Very clean, very balanced beer. Hides the abv very well too, wonderfully crafted.

Pours a dark amber. Has a malty, grass, and hay aroma. A strong and flavorful lager with a mix of malt, grass, grains, and some spices. Has a light hop aftertaste that isnt overwhelmingly bitter.
