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.

Its aroma is average. It smells like plain generic beer. It is an amber-brown in color. It tastes like generic beer. It has a lot of hops. A lot of flavor.

Tap @ source. Copper color with oatmeal head and nice lacing. Smells lightly wheaty and citric with a hint of fruit. A little sweeter than I usually like.

On tap at Jet Rock at PHL (after a connecting flight...I admit that all beers I have ever rated seem to get an extra +0.2 just for the fact that Jet Rock is the best non-tied-house craft beer bar in an airport). Also, the actual beer ratings by me are pretty lame. Clear amber with solid off-white head that is relatively sustained. Malt bomb all around. Rich, and nutty.

BeerBunker (940) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours amber with an off-white head. Nice head retention. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is of caramel, bread, malt, and grass. Smells good. Taste is of caramel, grassy hops, and toffee. Has a bready malt backbone. Lingering grassy hop taste. Mouthfeel is light, and slightly creamy. Body is moderately carbonated, and slightly sticky. Tastes good, and it drinks real easy. I could definitely drink a few of these.

commonmac (698) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Tap pour at Butcher and the Boar. Bumped pint glass. Amber color... obviously with good lacing but minor unassuming head. Aroma is mostly malty and bready. Mouthfeel is thin syrupy and a little oily. Taste feels very much like a standard amber or Vienna lager. Malty with some roasted notes. Mostly sweetness with caramel and subtle toffee notes. Some bitterness at the end. Pretty decent for the style. This one feels pretty touchable.

Atom (1817) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2015
12oz bottle pours a dark clear Amber, with a small khaki head. Aroma of fruity hops, grains, with sweet caramel and toffee malts. Sweet malt flavors, caramel and toffee, with slightly bitter grassy and fruity hops, and beery lager yeast on the finish. Nice for the style.
