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!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2004
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.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Solid rust/coppery color with a slight chill haze, medium, softly topped chicken meat colored head that sits a good while before settling to a favorable skim and thin, speckled curtains of lace sticking as we go. Aroma is quite light on the nose with some light toasty grains and bread with just a bit of sweetened fruitiness. As it warms a nice smokey-like dryness, roasty hazel nuts, and hard caramel appear in the nose making it much nicer and even a bit stronger. Taste is mild but eager with a small easy start that remains in some mixed maltyness of slight sweetness and light toastyness, but that gains with a gradual presence of uniquely thick seven grain pancake-like toasty roundness. Perfectly milding light grassy spice and hops poke through. Add in the teriffic finish of smokened grains and malts slightly drying and lifting into the finishwith mixed roasty nuttyness. Very intriguing flavors indeed, well put together with a delicately rich and smooth body that keeps convalescing. A true showmanship of the meaning behind hand crafted. Wow, what a recipe, great stuff! Try it and see, you'll be impressed no doubt! Absolutely drinkable to the fullest! My new Vienna/Marzen to keep around at all costs! Yum times ten!

flemdawg (529) - Naples, Florida, USA - FEB 14, 2004
Reddish orange color with an offwhite head that was decently lasting. Also some carbination through out the tasting. Aroma of sweet dried fruits,, alot like the apricots I have, and a bit of dates as well. Malty taste up front, followed briefly by those dried fruits, and a stong hop finish. Usually I am not a fan of Vienna's but this one blew my mind.

DCopperfields (145) - Alabama, USA - FEB 9, 2004
Nice bottle, mentions on the label that Eliot Ness is "untouchable". Nice, deep amber color with a tannish head which proves ephemeral. A touch of spotty lacing remains. Smells like a caramel factory. Sweet burned sugar aromas and hints of molasses and toasted raisin bread. Big malt up front, riding on just enough hops to carry it through. Well carbonated, this beer has a medium to full mouthfeel and a sweet finish. Faint hints of caramel and chocolate abound. Final kick of mild hops really makes this drinkable.
