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.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2016 Clear amber pour with nice white head. Tasty malt aroma with hints of floral notes. Taste is toasty and sweet malt. Nice crisp finish.

Need to try it when I am not so buzzed. But I like it quite a bit at the moment. A nice hop forward with a nice long-lasting bitter finish. Slightly nutty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12floz, BBD: 09.27.2017, ~$1.75 unit equivalent, pint glass. An amber lager with clarity and small dirty white head. Corn flake and caramel sets the tone in the aroma, and further in the full bodied palate. I find this to be too heavy handed, it could be a bit thinner in body and be a fine session beer. Instead it feels like a syrupy malt bomb.Perhaps if I look at this more as a Marzen or American amber, then it works as a worthy beer for certain moments.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2017 It's a very good session-able beer. I will always be happy to sit back with a six pack and a Fire and friends and drink this nice malty Vienna lager. Or to have it with Chinese as I just did.

Rex_Remes (250) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - JUL 7, 2017
(12oz bottle) AROMA: sweet grain/corn, touch of tropical fruit, underlying spice and moist tobacco, some sourness, yeast. APPEARANCE: clear Amber, medium froth, head sustained, a bit oily. TASTE: Rich maltiness, dark chocolate, raisin, dried fruit, jam, earthy. PALATE: solid medium body, round, relatively robust, smooth and oily with some dry graininess on the tongue/cheeks at the finish. OVERALL: very nice Amber lager, ale-like in some ways but with the crispness and drinkability of a lager. One of the best Vienna/Amber lagers that I’ve had. Only small negative is it is a bit alcoholy tasting.

dekester1 (368) - Town of Maple Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 17, 2017
Poured a deep amber with minimal head and lacing. Aromas of sweet roasted malts with a light hint of fruitiness. Taste is deep caramel with a slight breadiness and light hop finish. Palate is very solid. Overall, one of the better ambers I have tasted in a while. Will definitely buy it again at some point.

Toast. Malty. Vegetal. Slightly hazy dark copper. Medium off white head that quickly recedes to a foamy film leaving a ring on the glass. Medium bodied. Soft. Mouthfeel. Toast. Earth. Clean finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ginotarugo (70) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Strong malty aroma and flavor, with some aftertaste. I didn’t care for it. In fact, I had to force myself to finish it. Not nearly as smooth as the Yuengling equivalent for this style. After trying at least 7 different beers from Great Lakes Brewing I have yet to find one I like. I will keep trying.
