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.

Bottle. Medium sized ivory head that mostly diminished, fair lacing, fine sized bubbles, carbonated, and a dark orange hue. Malty, caramel, hoppy, sweet aroma. Flavor was sweet, malty and hoppy with a slght aftertaste. Tingly, hoppy and dry palate. Medium bodied beer. Quaffable.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JAN 5, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2006 Pours a more red of an amber color with a slight beige head. Real good flavor to it, can really taste sweet caramel and it’s malty, nice hop kick and actually alcohol kick to it that give it a nice bite.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Deep sparkling copper body topped by a foamy light tan head with stringy lacing. The aroma is pure malty vienna lager. Lightly nutty, notes of butter and hops. Subtle but nice aroma. The flavor is briliant. Nutty sweet bitterness that is simply divine. Extremely drinkable. Medium body lightly dry finsih. One of the best viennas out there. Thanks Dan, though you still owe me. ;)

JMerritt (1871) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2004
I drank this a mere 12 hours after the "best by" date. Black cherry colored with a small, light-brown head that is mostly diminishing. Light brown sugar aroma, with sour grains and light citrus. Lightly bitter, with sour grains most prevalent, multigrain bread, and roasted nuts. Some slightly fruity esters. Very mellow, and quite possibly past its prime- though if it went south less than a day after it’s best by date, that’s pretty bad.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2004
Out of the bottle this brew pours a cloudy sunset red with a tall off-white head. Amazing hop aroma, sicky hops, with a caramel sweetness beside it. Taste starts with a melty sweet caramel malt, very well balanced with a nice finishing bitterness. This brew has a thick body, almost syrupy on the palate. Great brew with a nice crispness.

Pours a two-fingered white head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Hoppy nose. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Starts with a mix of hops and malt with the hops dominating, some sweetness, finish is clean and hoppy with some bitter after taste. $1.49 for a 12oz bottle from Liquor Barn Lexington, KY.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2005 The commercial description says it for me. This deep amber brew is full of solid malt flavor with a nice balance on the hops. Full-bodied and refreshing with a crisp finish, this beer reminds a hop-head like me that lagers can be damned good drinks.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Clear reddish amber in color, with a good white head that left some lace. The aroma is malt, reminiscent of pistachios, and spicey yeast similar to a bock, with a light floral hop fragrance. Taste is smooth toasted and nutty malt with some bitterness, this beer is clean and crisp. There is a nice balance of body and carbonation. A perfect beer for drinking all evening.

OK beer from a great brewery. They play it safe with this style not traveling far from the middle. Other styles from GLBC better and more daring. Solid brew in regards to other Viennas.
