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.

Huge light tan head. Clear dark amber. Sweet caramel aroma. Flavor moderatley sweet with the taste of caramel. Finish is mostly malt with a light bitter background to balance it out. Light to medium bodied.

Pours dark amber with a tannish head. Strong malt aroma. Taste is sweet malt and very rich. Caramel aftertones. This beer is very high in flavor. Well done.

sfontain (830) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Lovely dark red/purple/brown color, starting with a two-finger light brown head that disappears into nothingness. Aroma very sweet, lots of malts and a sharp sweetness, perhaps cherry. Yummy with the caramelized malts in the beginning; the middle is sweet and subdued; the finish brings out the hops as the malt flavor mostly wears off; nice, mellow balance. Medium thickness, slightly sugary/syrupy. Very different from the last "vienna" I had; for the best-of-the-best, this isn’t "that good." But it is very solid and pleasant to drink. Good beer.

A lot of quality in here, but these heavy, hoppy beers (a la Sierra Nevada) seem a dime a dozen to me. If I want to take a half hour-40 minutes to drink 1 beer, I’ll take a bourbon or a glass of wine.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2004 Bottle Pours a red/copper with a very large foamy off-white head. After this finally settles, a thin layer remains to bolster the decent lacing. Aroma is malt and applesauce. Som edakr roasted grain. Nice rich flavors. Carmel, hops and a little smokey. Deep and..well...’noble’... Rounded complex taste. Feel is rich and soft, with a woody and not bitter after taste. Quite good. Thanks to EddieG for the trade.

A very good vienna. Crisp, with a full flavor and nice color. Really a pleasant brew and easy drinking. Another worthy offering from Great Lakes.

This one poured a thick tan head over a very dark burgundy-hued body, witha malty, caramelly odor. Its tasty was fruity and complex... an excellent Vienna-style brew!

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2012 I just bought a GL sampler for $6 what a deal, this was one of them. Carmel colored, translucent pours with a small tan head. Amora is carmel malt, sweet with a touch of saaz or hallertau. Flavor is bitter/sweet. Balanced finish. Very good beer

Pours a big rich tan head. Beer is slightly cloudy, deep red brown (as ambers go, anyway). Nice caramel nose. Full malt flavor. Caramel or toffee, maybe honey. Rich and heavy on the palate. Nice use of hops. Surprisingly high alcohol. Very good overall, just a bit too heavy for this style.
