UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 On tap at the brewpub where it is listed as a "Red Ale ... like an ESB". Pours dark amber with good clarity, a very fine looking head and plenty of lacing Aroma: mild aroma lacks hop presence, as expected The flavor is a bit more hoppy, but still more malty, as expected for style. Good bitter-sweet balance.

The only good Buckeye is a bleeding one! Not bad. Not too heady. Wish it wasn't in a pint glass. Not super flavorful. Okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocJitsu (1299) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Pours a dull amber-brown with an off-white head. Toasted malt and nutty nose. Flavors approximate the nose. There is a peculiar hop presence that interferes with the presumed intention of the beer.

BrewMaster0912 (49) - Marysville, Ohio, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Has a very nice, sweet and inviting aroma but the taste is bitter and leaves a bit of a dry tongue. Has a dark color and has a medium amount of foam when poured....not a very good beer, don;t recommend it all for anyone.

GIJOE (971) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Pours a nice ruby red with a thin white head that stays awhile. Nose is malty. Taste is slightly sweet with an astringent finish. Thin, lively carbonation. Not bad, but I wouldn’t turn one down at a party.

Pours amber with white head. Biscuity malt aroma with herbal hoppiness. Flavor is toasted dry caramel malt with citrus and herbal spicy hop finish.

Gription79 (2653) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to jsquire. Pours a cloudy brown with a huge off white head. The aroma is husky, yeasty, slight chocolate note. The flavor is husky, cardboard, some apple notes. This is super oxidized. Footbalmed.

Lowe1983 (1391) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pours an amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is fairly light with some caramel malts and light hints of citrus hops. Flavor is mostly sweet from the malts with only just a hint of some hop character. Not that good of a brew.

bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear mahogany amber with an over-zealous (takes over the glass - 6"+) tan head, globs of lace. Nice aroma of malt and hops. Taste is dark caramel malt that grows some in the palate before adding citrus hops in a finish that lingers into straight bitter. A good "American" ESB - lots of body good malt and hops.
