COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
I never met a Sasquatch I didn't like. This delicious beer starts with a distinct citrus aroma followed by a complex flavor from European Munich and Biscuit specialty malts. Finally, it ends with the trademark Buckeye finish- hops, hops, and more hops. The Columbus variety is used to balance the brew, and later Sasquatch and I personally dry-hop it with Cascade.

Thanks to OhioDad for this one! Pours a hazy dark amber with a generous pff-white head. Light citrus aroma. The flavor is well balanced, with both sweet malts and bittering hops represented equally. A gentle, yet firm drying bitterness describes the finish. I could drink a session with this one.

hotstuff (3912) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2006
Bottle purchased at Dilly Deli in Mariemont, OH. Pours a large off-white fizzy head that was mostly lasting, fair quantity of lacing, floaties, hazy, visible carbonation, and an orange hue. Caramel, hoppy, grapefrut, and pine nose. Flavor was grapefruit, pine, hoppy, caramel, bitter hops. Hoppy mouthfeel. Medium body. All-in-all a nice brew for this style.

Certainly tell this is a Buckeye beer from the aroma. A slightly hazy copper color small head. A musty citrus hop aroma. A spicy hop taste. Very good.

Very true to style. I'd like to rate it higher, but compared to many beers I've had its not that good, as with most pale ales. Almost amber in color, light citrus aroma and flavor to match. If you like pale ales, I suggest you try this one. Thanks alcfron.

Copper color with a big-bubbled off-white head. Crisp, fresh hop nose. Flavor of pinapple, grapefruit and orangr rind. The orange sweetness grew as the beer warmed. I wanted more body. Hop finish is almost too harsh. Decent APA.

Bottle from Sean, thanks. Dark brown color, thick yellow head. Smell is malts and some hops, and a thick yeasty smell. Taste is pretty sweet, but very refreshing. A nice session beer, pretty redeeming after trying the hippie IPA. not too bad.

aroma is citrusy, hoppy and has a desticnt hint of oranges. Taste is a bit hoppier then I would have thought, with a certain fruity and caramel flavour. Nice smooth finish, chunks of sediment in the glass .....

Bottle: Deep amber, bordering on copper, large foamy sand colored head, enjoyable lacing, lively carbonation.   Pale hop nose, moreso malty and biscuity.   Quite biscuity on the tongue, very assertive in fact.   Hop bitterness only appears near the tail end.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Perhaps a touch of tobacco on the finish as well.   I like American Pale ales, but the Biscuit specialty malts always make me think of milk bones for dogs.   Good, but not hoppy/bitter enough for my tastes.   Thanks Mark for giving me the opportunity to try this one!

Pours a golden color with a large, fluffy, cream colored head. The aorma is citrusy with some spice. The flavor is mildy hopped with a slight spicey finish.

Pours dark orange / brown with a frothy thick beige head that gives good lacing. Aroma is woody and piney hops with some citrusy sweetness. Some light musty malt is in the background. Medium body with moderately sharp carbonation. Taste starts with musty caramel malt with a little sharpness from the hops. The finish has more spice, but the mustiness still lingers. There is some traces of pine in there as well. Overall a good pale ale.
