great lakes burning river is a medium bodied, amber ale. a spicy nose leads to a bitter hoppiness which is quickly balanced by the maltiness. a tastey dry ale which i've grown to know and love.

CapFlu (4461) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2003
(Bottle) Medium, foamy, almond head and a sediment filled copper body. Active carbonation. Very pleasant fruity malt, cask and mild scotch nose. Slight smoke, solid maltiness, lasting dry-bitterness. Nice complexity. Very good.

lipskin (38) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2003
This excellent brew is filled with wonderful hop flavor and a good measure of maltiness to balance it out. It has a nice clear golden/coppery appearance. The finish is dry and crisp.

Very refeshing ale. Great hop flavor. A little bit too bitter for my taste, but overall this is a very nice, drinkable beer.

Nice, hoppy flavor with a dry finish. This is a very nice Pale Ale! Could easily drink one too many of this very drinkable beer.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2003
A pleasant, hoppy pale ale that doesn't really smell like much. It has a strong bitter finish that gives an extra kick to the hops. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice lush head on a pale amber body. Very dry - no sweetness whatsoever. Hints of grapefruit.

Nicely biased towards the hoppy side with right amount of maltiness to back it up. I'll have to keep a six of this in my fridge.

Many breweries would try to pass this off as an IPA - it sure is as hoppy as some "IPAs" anyway - this is really a perfectly balanced pale ale - the malt/hop balance is the best you'll find in the style - and the slighty bready presence really tops it off and creates a fuller flavor - slight woody finish that's nice and clean - an excellent pale ale.

BBB63 (5946) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 28, 2003
A slightly cloudy orange hue, rocky head with some lacing. thin-bodied. Aroma has hints of clove, grapefruit, and burnt toast. Hoppy on the palate but not overaggressive. Finished clean with little aftertaste, a quality APA which are so hard to find.
