Abstract: Let $G$ be a connected reductive group over a field $F$. In this note the author constructs an element $e(G)$ of the Brauer group of $F$. The square of this element is trivial. For a local field, $e(G)$ may be regarded as an element of $\{ \pm 1\}$ and is needed for harmonic analysis on reductive groups over that field. For a global field there is a product formula.
