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.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - MAY 20, 2005
Bottled. Soft, sweet, mildly fruity and malty aroma. Medium-dark copper-brown color, clear, with a slight, fading head. Flavor profile is mild and lightly sweet, some light brown sugar and gentle nutty breadiness mingling at the finish with some lightly spicy hop and lingering dark grainy sweetness. Smooth, lightly carbonated palate with a light-medium body. Highly drinkable and would make for an excellent session beer. At least, if I had more than the one bottle, it would.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2006 Bright golden brown in color with not much of a head. Souring aroma. Smells mighty malty, like a Marzen sans hops. Some brown sugar and maple syrup in the smell as well. Spice completion ignites the smooth, subtle flavoring. Nuts and caramel protrude. Much creamier than expected. Finishes like a cinnamon roll. Not very eventful, but good.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2007 Pours amber with a fully receding wispy white head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, and malty lager yeast. Taste of chewy caramel malt with bready yeast. Alcohol is somewhat noticable. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with dense carbonation. Reminds me very much of an Oktoberfest I just brewed, this yeast is very similar to Wy2308. Enjoyable.

I have to say that I have enjoyed every Great Lakes beer that I have had so far, very smooth, great taste and aroma, when I have the money, I will go for the variety pack

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 27, 2005
Poured a nice dark amber color with a decent lingering head. Taste is of nuts with some lingering fruit qualities in the backdrop.

Boutip (5898) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2005
Bottle: Poured a mid-brown color beer with an above average white foamy head with good retention. Nice malty aroma with some roastiness and some nuts. Taste is quite malty with a smooth creamy taste and light bitterness at the end. Body is fuller then expected and probably fuller then most Vienna I tasted before. Overall, this is real good stuff.

Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2005
Malt and a bit of nuts in aroma. Nice and full body with a very tasty malt. A bit chewy and roasty. Ends with a little hops. Very good stuff.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 12, 2005
Nice presenting pale ruby brew. Decent creamy head. Light slightly woody aroma, sweet with noticeable alcohol at the finish. Medium bodied, sweet malts with off raw cabbage like aftertaste. Light bitter finish.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2005
A very tight and well-balanced beer. Caramel malts and some crisp, floral hops are the main tastes. Taste goes malty, then hoppy, then malty again, and ends with a slight bitter and slight nutty taste. Very nice, very refreshing.

Light candied malt aroma, copper, pours a large toffee head. Soft malt taste, some light hops too. Light bodied, some bitterness at the finish. A nice beer.
