Making our rounds in and around Dayton, we stopped by (yes) another pub. This was more of a bar, but one with local beer on tap. One that caught my eye was Elevator Dark Force Dark Lager (5.9% abv). Brewed in Columbus by Elevator Brewery, this beer poured dark amber with thin, sudsy white head. It smelled mild, but of nothing else. The taste was just as mild. There was some bitterness before roasted malt flavors kicked in. The middle was just as mild, as the caremelly roastiness came back. Light body with medium carbonation, the beer finished with the roasty malts and the caramel. Overall, nothing to write home about.
