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.

Very middle of the road but good. A good solid offering from a good brewer. I like the ease in which this brew goes down. Enjoyable.

SHANER4 (478) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 23, 2014
I thought I rated this beer. I have had this beer several times and think its really good. Reminds me of boston lager with more malt and somewhat sweeter. Has nice body and goes down smooth.

ScipioA (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Orange-tinted amber in the pour is nice to look at and it provides a smooth and relatively heavy mouthfeel, otherwise nothing really special here. Grainy malts and maybe a touch too sweet.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Out of the bottle with the boys. Aroma is nutty and malty with some caramel notes. Pours amber with a small but frothy white head. Taste is malt forward with notes of marshmallow and figs. Great warm malt mouthfeel without being too sweet. Solid vienna.

LetsGoState (581) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Aroma is sweet malts. Taste is rich malts with a small hit of bitter hops. Overall a nicely balanced beer.

hopmelt (172) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Pours slightly hazy deep amber, finger thin head, thin lacing. Aroma toasted bread, caramel, floral hops. Taste folows nose, slightly bitter, enough sweetness to balance. Mouthfeel medium body and carbonation, clean, balanced finish. Overall real nice beer, tasty and well made, another great Great Lakes beer.

One of my top five, balanced all the way across the spectrum. Only change it needs is a higher gravity.

cmiller54hr (43) - Manitou, Kentucky, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Pours dark amber. Has a roasty scent to it. Has a similar taste. A well balanced beer. Higher abv than many lagers but the alcohol is hidden well. A very good beer from one of my favorite american breweries.
