Served chilled into the Ohio State pint glass. Go Buckeyes!

Hazy redish color and thin white head.

Sweet malty aroma and mild hops in the background.

Flavor is balanced but slightly metallic and astringent.

Mouthfeel is medium-light in body and nicely carbonated.

I remember really liking The Elevator when we lived in Columbus. Unfortunately, this beer doesn't live up to memory.

From one of my favorite breweries in Columbus Ohio. This one pours a copper/reddish tinged
color with HUGE off white head and fantastic sudsy lacing. Nose of sweet caramel malts, a hint
of light hops, and nice bready malts. Caramel malts abound to the front and back of this one
with a light bittering hops to round it out. Ample carbonation fights against the malty sweet
characteristic of this brew and sears in the hops profile. Not really a red, and very lightly an
ESB. That said I have always enjoyed a pint of this on tap at their most impressive restaurant.
Bottled it is decent though and a great session beer. Now if only to get them to bottle the
Procrastinator dopple bock.

Cheers
