Eliot Ness

The Beer Stats: 

  • Beer Name: Eliot Ness
  • Brewery: Great Lakes Brewing Company (Ohio)
  • Style: Amber Lager
  • ABV: 6.2%
  • IBU: 27
  • Pour Color: A amber color that light got thru easy

      The color was a toasted amber color along the lines of almost a red. The head came up frothy and eventually mellowed, although it left a trace of it self the whole way down! The scent off the top is malty yeasty and toasty. Not really a hop lovers beer here. The taste is much sweeter then I usualy enjoy. That though is mixed with a toasty almost biscuity taste. The only hops come through as a earthy variety, not very bold though. Really a lager that has some soul not just fizzy yellow sugar like some. 

     This is a nice light amber that is light but not. 6.2% abv gives it a little kick that most ambers wouldn't have. The toasty flavor and easy drinkability make this a pretty good beer. Not something to go tell the neighbor hood about either. Any speak easy or every day bar should have something this smooth on!
