The Bleeding Buckeye....while having a kick ass name....it decent. The beer poured an slightly hazy amber with white head that laced like a Vicky secret catalog. The taste and scent did not deviate much from standard red/amber ales. The taste was not as smooth as reds that I have had so I downgraded it by a 0.25. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall its good.

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.

A little cloudy, tried pouring slow but still had a lot of head. Very interesting taste malt with some bitterness. Would drink again for something different.

Review date: 5-1-15. Threshold glass. Bottle date 3-11-15.

Appearance: Pours a dark reddish amber, almost brown with 1 finger beige head quickly receding. Clear with active visible carbonation. OK, some lacing. Retains a thin skim of foam.

Aroma: Very sweet, slightly roasty aroma. Quite malty, smells almost like a brown ale.

Taste: Sweet, toasty malt arrival. Sweet & Malty, slightly tart/roasty mid-palate. Finishing bitterness comes as much from the roast as the hops. Very low hopping. (Re-reviewed 5-12-17 at work! Hoppier than I remember.)

Mouthfeel: Heavier side of mid-weight. Less carbonation than it appears, slightly slick.

Overall: Would not call this an ESB, so much as an Amber, but it is a good, quaffable amber. I could see this being too heavy and sweet to want to session, though. Really drinks like a brown ale. Very malty and balanced. I can see myself buying this if in the mood for a sweeter beer. (On re-review, less sweet than I initially remember).

Eh. Tastes kind of dirty. Not earthy. Dirty. Kind of like dirty water. With some amber tones thrown in. (This is an ESB? Or, supposedly one? Really?) I don't get it.
