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.

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!

JCW (1276) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2004
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.

argo0 (11958) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Lightly hazed copper body with beige head. Aroma is moderately sweet, strong toffee/caramel. Taste is medium sweet, toffee/caramel, light earthy. Light-medium body. The toffee, without more, is just too overpowering to me.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2009 Dark amber color with a medium white head. Toasty, caramel malt aroma. Lightly sweet malts with notes of caramel, toffee, and toast. Well balanced by moderate hop bitterness. Finishes with some honey and light fruity sweetness. Very enjoyable.

jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 16, 2004
UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 First real Vienna. Pretty good. Red with a tan head, with a great balance of malt and hops. There was one interesting fruity flavor that I can’t identify.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2004
(Best by Sep/20/04) I really like the color of this beer, sort of chestnut red. The nose is full of Hallertau and light sweet malts. The head only lasted for a little while, but there still is a small ring holding onto the rim of the glass. Malt and spicy hops meld effortlessly to produce a tasty brew. I taste bitter chocolate and smooth coffee and cream. This beer is nice and malty, but it is not overly sweet. Actually, the beer finishes dry and hoppy. A good interpretation of the style.

my dad held a bowl glass filled with miller lite while i held a stem glass full of this: honey/reddish brown body with a lingering and airy off-white head. caramel malt announced nicely enough while it seems the hops bring something floral. slightly sweet, watery, but it’s very drinkable. the aftertaste is a little bitter with some veggies. it finishes nicely, a bit sweet. it's a quiet beer and i like that. not much else than any other lager, in my opinion, but it has just enough more to edge most of the others out. good lager. but today, at least, i preferred my dad's miller lite. happy father's day everybody!
