On tap at Treo in Sylvania, this one can be found all year both in bombers and on draft at restaurants in the Toledo area.

It's a pale reddish color, going on the side of copper but with a ruddy hue. The head is nearly pure white, a cap about a half finger tall. Lacing is left spottily and somewhat lazily on the glass. Most of what remains after a few moments is a thin foam that sticks to the edges.
A good balance of malty and hoppy, it's what one would expect for a "middle-of-the-road" style like this one. Breads and caramel mingle with mild hops bitterness, mostly floral. Pretty standard stuff, though well enough done.
The mouthfell goes pretty thin, even for a style like this. It's crisp and light in the body with moderate carbonation.
This isn't a bad, easily available offering, though it's somewhat par for a fairly weak style. Others have taken it and made it something great, so I know it can be done.

Appearance: This beer pours a light red color and is topped with ¾” of white head that tends to linger.
Smell: The aroma of this Ohio red ale is of malt a few hops and I think a little yeast. It has me intrigued.
Taste: This red ale has a nice basic taste to it, good malt backbone with a little hop presents and a good dry finish a lot better than I was expecting.
Mouthfeel: A bit on the thin side, with a good typical red ale dry finish.
