Shot (465) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark copper with a thick off-white head that slowly dissipates to an eight of an inch. Aromas of brown sugar, toffee, and herbal hops. Flavors are caramel malt, herbal hops, a bit of grassiness and bready notes. Low carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Very similar to a traditional English bitter. Not exceptional.

shigadeyo (3635) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 28, 2014
10/28/2014: The Irish Red of a vert typical interpretation of the style. Orange copper color, vanilla almond, soft maltiness, low bitterness. Typical and uninspired. Draught at the Buckeye Lake Brewery.

Draft pour at the brewhouse. Pours a translucent amber with a beige head of foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet and peaty with a soft malt profile. Very low bitterness. Easy drinking beer.

On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Pigskin. Mostly clear darker red color. Minimal khaki head. Couple bits of lace. Medium body. Lighter, smooth, more crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Caramel malts, some light spice. Hint of chocolate. Light bitter taste, moderate sweet. OK red ale.

johpor (1) - Ohio, USA - MAR 14, 2013 does not count
Picked up a growler at The Daily Growler in Columbus. This is the first Buckeye Lake beer I have tried and would definitely get it again. Nice malty aroma. Poured a thin white head. Lightly toasted caramel taste with a smooth finish.

jsquire (4167) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Sampled at the ’12 Columbus Microbrew Festival. Amber color with a thin off white head. Sweet malty nose. Malty sweetness with some caramel and raw grain, chalk and apple fruitiness. Easy drinking beer for an uninteresting style.

JaBier (7027) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Sample at the brewery. Pours a clear reddish copper with a medium beige head. Malty and lightly caramelly flavor with some light hops. Malty and caramelly flavor with slight hop. Right on for the style, but I found the nose and flavor to be faint. Got a little stronger as it warmed up, but seemed less "there" than the rest of their brews, even the blonde.

steelhead3686 (258) - Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Tasted this during Brew Week in Athens Ohio 2012. Pours a light, clear, brown with a thin white head. Smells of alcohol almost to the point of scotch. Light sweet taste and a faint bitterness. Light body with a thin texture that has a clean and slight stinging finish. Noting special from this beer, I wouldn’t look for it in a bar.
