superspak (4876) - Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2016
16 ounce can into pint glass, no can dating. Pours slightly hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki headh with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, raisin, plum, apple, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, and toasted biscuit; with lighter notes of nuttiness, raisin, plum, apple, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, an y east earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Irish red/ESB style. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

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.

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.

chinchill (4440) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 31, 2015
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.
