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.

Pleasant aroma of a good malty lager. This beer was all about the malt. Smooth drinking and refreshing all the way, as a lager should be.

In a blind taste test I say no way this is a lager...too full flavored (roasted malt and hoppy bitterness) with a rich mouthfeel and nice crisp bitter finish. Pretty good.

It has a tangy taste. Brilliant red color, bad atmittedly I picked it because of the color. Nutty complicated flavor. Fruity and nutty all at once. Thick palat feel in my opinion.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 19, 2005
Pours a cloudy amber hue, with a small halo of a slight off-white head. Aromas of roasted malts, honey, a hint of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied wiith flavots of caramel, grain, caramel, and a little bit of roasted nuts. Very nice finish....wow, I am not the biggest vienna fan, not to mention lager fan, but this is very tasty.

pivo (2631) - GERMANY - JAN 16, 2005
Nice ruddy color and a light tan, fluffy head. Some toasted malt in the nose. Sweet and caramelly malt, though not overpowering. A little bitter and decent hop blend. Good balance and a smooth brew.

cazort (553) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Good, but doesn’t seem to have any real distinguishing qualities; intermediate in bitterness among the great lakes brews. Good balance of hops and malt. Pleasant aroma. Rich flavour without being weird in any way. I gladly drink it, but I think some of the other Great Lakes brews are a bit more exciting.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2005
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.
