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.

Amber with a big lasting beige head. Aroma of malt and hops. Flavor is sweet, malty, caramel, and a little fruit. This is the first Vienna that I've really liked.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 This beer looks great in the glass, glows like a copper sunset with a surprisingly thin head. Body instantly has a malty sweetness with hints of dried raisins and a somewhat nutty presence. Aroma is of candied fruits and rasted coffee beans with a hint of natural carbonation. A very, very drinkable beer available widely in the great lakes region, one of my favorite "drinking" beers!

Light malt aroma. Average off-white frothy head. Moderate hoppy flavor and long lasting light sweet finish. Very drinkable.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2004
No aroma. Color was med-dark brown, with no head. Color was consistent. Flavor was malty. “Rich malt flavor,” and a little sweet. More “amber” than “lager. ” Slightly dry finish. Palate was not too bad, not too good. Overall, it is what it says. Clearly more of an more amber than lager. Sweet and malty, and not my style.

I'm not sure what all the fuss is about theis beer. I thought it was middle of the road amber. Zero head to speak of and lasted about 3 seconds. I thought it almost tasted like "candy" it was so sweet and it didn't last long on my palate. Would be a great beer if I didn't pay $10 a sixer!

The beer after seceding from the bottle pours a deep translucent burnished copper color, the head cyclopean in size, the texture spumescent and the color a resplendent light tan with the lace a glutinous sheet to eclipse the glass. Nose is a slightly musky with a big malt sweet backing and the start mildly sweet with a pleasing malt presence, the top moderate in its feel to the palate. Finish is pesky in its acidity, the hops bountiful and pleasing in their spiciness, droughty aftertaste that lingers long on the palate, a great beer from a great brewery.
