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.

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.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 16, 2004
Pours a dark "merlot" color. With a small white fluffy head. Aroma of light malt and spice. Flavor is deep and rich, malt. Alcohol and spicy hops also present. Palate is very full. A very nice brew!

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Dark amber color with a light tan head. The nose shows malt as the main thing, but there is a nice little bit of spice underneath the carmel notes. Very smooth on the palate, with soft carbonation. Flavors of carmel and a touch of dark fruit up front and a clean, dry finish. Super beer. I wish everyone could try this at least once.

Nose is nice rich brown sugar malt, hoppier than I expected. Very nice sweet rich malt. A little dusty. Brown sugar, plum, a little alcohol. Bitter at the back of my tounge. Damn fine
