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.

One of the best lagers out there. Great lakes is doing great. Their porter and pale are are far and away tops.

sonnycheeba (5090) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear, dark amber. Aroma is caramel and bready malts, light berry notes, light nuttiness, and some lager yeast esters. Flavor matches the aroma with a really nice malt profile that has complexity without being overly sweet and a crisp, dry finish with some subtle hop bitterness. Medium body.

Darker amber pour, good sized puffy white head, lots of lace. Bready aroma, some caramel sweetness. Bready up front, rye, caramel, subtlespice and hopping, earthy. Medium body. My default beer when I visit Cleveland - everywhere seems to have this at least in bottles.

freekyp (1926) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Hits all the hallmarks of the Vienna style. Lightly malt forward with muted earthy slightly metallic continental hops. Pours reddish brown with a small ring of beige head. Little in the way of aroma. Very clean throughout. Nice lingering pumpernickel toast finish.

altonbrownd (5659) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2016
On tap at Black Rooster Pub. Inviting red body with slight, white head. Nose is malts, spices and caramel. Taste of caramel and wheat also, and some hops and floral notes. Actually really well done.

Pumpkin87 (231) - - FEB 6, 2016
Pours lovely clear copper-amber with small off-white head. Nose is bread and honey, hazelnut. Palate adds flowers, toffee, slight metal buzz. Finishes on mild sour note. Much better with aeration and less chilled, while reasonable 6.1 percent ABV makes it sessionable.
