Very smokey tatse. Felt like i was at a barbeque. Very winter friendly beer although i had it in the summer. Very much reminded me of Schells fire brick ale, if youve had that one. Great lakes has some better beers.

Orange gold color, slightly cloudy. Medium white foamy head. Aroma is floral hops, fruit and caramel. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity and sweet. Orange peel and citrus. Hops are grapefruity and floral. Hoppy without being overly bitter. Nice balance. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2004 Pours a golden hazy color, with a nice big head of white. Aroma is a citrus hoppy smell, very clear and clean smelling. Taste is Citrus and hops, a perfect balance of the two. A little bit of malt, though dominated by the hops.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2008 Without a doubt, Burning River is the best Pale Ale around. I keep a keg of it in my basement year round, and I cant get enough. Those wonderful Cascade hops produce a big hop presence unlike any other Pale. I agree with Benny, by saying this beer can stand up to many IPAs that Ive had.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2004
golden color with frothy white head with plenty of lace, crisp apple and hop aroma, crisp malt flavor with a dull hop finish, rolls on the tongue, the first beer my dad bought for me, a mile marker for sure.

Pours amber with a white head. Smell is hoopy. Taste is even more hoppy. This tastes more like an IPA than an APA. Very drinkable. Nothing bad about this beer at all. Probably the best APA Ive had.

DarkElf (3061) - La Jolla, California, USA - JUL 3, 2004
(12-ounce bottle, obtained in trade, thanks Brian!) This very flavorful, toasty pale ale is malty, moderately sweet, and somewhat fruity with a slight corn flavor and a solid, balancing hops bitterness; The toasty flavor is unusual for a pale ale and quite good; The mild nose is neither malty nor hoppy, but has a slightly unpleasant aroma; Medium bodied with a nice, pleasing mouthfeel; Medium golden color with a very slight haziness; Very large light tan head gradually settles out, leaving some thick lacing here and there on the glass

Clear copper, white head. Hoppy nose--citrus, pine,with some caramel. Solid bitter flavor, with violets, grapefruit, overlying a sweet body with fruity peach and orange esters.

Pours an amberish color with a very thin head. A subtle aroma with hints of flowers. The tase was a tad odd... hints of malt and hops, a little citrus, but then it all vanishes as it seems the beer steals all moisture out of your mouth. Insanely dry finish. Burning River... no kidding!
