Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale

Burning River was medium brown with a small white head and luckily not on fire when it came out of the bottle. There was a subdued citrus, orange, and grapefruit aroma mixed with bread and caramel malt. I was impressed with how big of a flavor this beer had after the somewhat subdued smell. There were citrus, grapefruit, and pine hops as well as caramel, bread, and grain malt flavors. This was a very solid, well balanced, and sessionable beer. I imagine it being a good addition to a barbecue, party, or other gathering. Despite being close to its expiration date, it still tasted excellent.

Overall: 9/10

Hi, I'm Colin, I love a good hoppy IPA, but I can find immense enjoyment in a solid session beer, imperial stout, quadrupel or a nostalgic beer from my past.
