Great Lakes Brewing Co. Burning River Pale Ale.


Yes here is another beer from a recent Brewpublik delivery, Great Lakes Brewing Co. Burning River Pale Ale, 6.0% ABV, with 45 IBUs. This Cleveland Ohio beer is referring to the Cuyahoga River and the when it caught fire. Burning River pours an orange color with a two finger head that has not much retention to it but gives off a  malt aroma with a little faint earthy resin hop note. Taste is slightly sweet on the front with what seems to be a malt flavor and on the middle, you get a little grapefruit with some bitterness on the back of the mouth. This all then finishes with a bitter note with a slight earthy note and the aftertaste isn’t much but what I did get was a slight bitterness that sort of fought a sweet flavor. This beer wasn’t so great but was finishable, so I sayGreat Lakes Brewing Co. Burning River Pale Ale is a C-. The flavors don’t really blend well and seem like they are sperate from one another and are bland at best. I don’t think this a one to go back too, so I don’t think you should try this one. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
