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

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.

The body has an inviting deep reddish amber color with very good clarity. On top there is a modest sized, just off white colored head that hangs on well and makes some nice lacing on the glass. The aroma has some sweet and toasted malty character with light mineral and leafy hop notes. Its flavor has a sweet malty and toasted bread base with notes of brown sugar, caramel and toasted malt. Hop flavor is solid and matches the sweetness of the malt with earthy, leafy and mineral flavors and balanced bitterness. The finish has toasted grains and hops fading slowly off the tongue. Its texture is smooth and slick with soft carbonation.

ebone1988 (203) - Wyoming, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Aroma is sweet, caramel, toffee, malt. Appearance is amber, light tan head. Taste is sweet malt, caramel, fades to a bitter raisin almost, not bad. Mouthfeel is a touch lighter than desired, heavier carbonation but not overwhelming. Overall, it’s a decent brew, and great for an amber, I may not be a fan of the style, though.

Transfer from BA review from 7-3-12 - \Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a lovely amber color with a big off white head that has a wonderful retention. The head faded very slowly over time to give a good level of lacing. Smell – The smell is heaviest in a bready and biscuit aroma. These are mixed some lighter sweet caramel a mild citrus hop aroma. Taste – A smooth lightly roasted and bready flavor meets the tongue. This is mixed with some light nutty flavors as well as a very light caramel flavor. The carmel fades and the nuttiness gets a bit stronger as the taste advances. While these flavors transition, notes of a citrus hop also come to the tongue. At the very end, the taste bitters ever so slightly leaving a rather nice bready-lighty bitter flavor on the tongue. Very pleasing. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is just above average in creaminesss with a carbonation level that is just below average to average. Both are great for the lighter roasted flavors, but niehter are too intense to take away from the flavors and drinkability. Overall – One fantastic easy drinking brew with great flavors. A great drinking experience for this Vienna.

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a clear red-amber color with a nice off white foamy head. Decent lacing. Aroma of malt and a little hop character. Sweet malt backbone with a crisp light hop finish. Still, and sweet aftertaste. Tasty.
