I had a pint of this beer at Lucky's on Court Street in Downtown Athens, OH. It pours a nice scarlet red with a good head. It tasted like a fresh microbrew should. It was hoppy but not so overpowering. It was smooth with a lasting tang then a quick finish. It was a great accompaniment to the Italian sub it was served with. What a great paring! If you are ever in Athens stop by and grab a bite and a Buckeye Red!

Nice reddish appearance, very small head that goes away almost immediately. Pint served to me in a pint glass at about 55 degrees - nice temp but it'll warm up fast, wish it was served a bit colder so I could drink it at a more leisurely pace.

Smell was of biscuity malt with a small touch of citrusy hops. Almost like a lighter Fat Tire aroma.

Taste is excellent - biscuity malt, a touch of citrus hops and blends very well together, definitely not very bitter at all.

Mouthfeel is good - creamy, smooth, clean, crisp, and nearly no aftertaste. You get the bitterness of the hops and then that goes away nearly immediately.

Drinkability is outstanding. I'll probably have to get growlers of this since that's the only way I know of apart from on-tap that they sell it in.

Elevator Bleeding Buckeye Red Ale - Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, this beer's head is two fingers thick and off-white, with spottier lacing, and a deep reddish-brown body.

I smell caramelized malts with a hint of earthiness.

Tastes like that also, with a full-bodied blend of "natural" flavors.

The mouthfeel here has medium-light,with carbonation and a clean finish.

Overall, I'll choose to give Elevator Bleeding Buckeye Red Ale - Elevator Brewery & Draught Haus a 4.25. A very formidable red ale, this will be picked up periodically by yours truly.
