Tap at gratzi. Nose is sweetish and warm. Full body and clean with some malt. Great color. Decent for a red and wouldn't turn away but not amazing.

haha more ohio crap, thick and caramelly. Tons of caramel sweetness, completely unbalanced crap. No hops at all what-so-ever.

12 oz bottle. Elevator Bleeding Buckeye Red Ale is a darker red amber beer. Nose is mostly medium roasted malt. Flavor is more of the same with just a faint hop presence. Body is medium and fluid. A decent middle of the road red ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.
