A- 4 Clear golden color. Fluffy white head that dissipates. Sticky, clingy lacing.
S- 3.5 Citrus and hops, but not too powerful. Just not getting enough of it.
T- 4 What was lacking in aroma is made up for in taste! Great blend of citrus and hops balanced by a hint of sweet malt.
M- 4.5 Near perfect carbonation, very smooth. Just under medium body.
D- 4.5 I could enjoy plenty of these. Very well balanced taste and smooth. It isn't heavy. Great session brew.
Serving type: on-tap

Named after the famous river burning, which no one actually photographed--the iconic photos published were from another burning decades earlier!
Anyway, this pours out a clear gold color with a small head. Nice malty aroma with a light grassy hoppiness. The flavor is strongly malty--a nice clean malt with a bit of crystal and a tad of nuttiness, together with medium bitterness and grassy hop taste. Clean finish.
Not a complex beer, but one that is really well done--it's quite an enjoyable beer to drink.

3.85/5 rDev -3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a light copper with a 3/4" foamy off-white head. Crystal clear with steady carbonation. Lacing down the glass, and retains a thick frothy cap.
Aroma: Fruity/citrusy/hoppy. "Cascadey," orange pith. Not just hop fruitiness, I think some of this is yeast, too.
Taste: Tight, dry arrival; flash of sweetness across mid-palate. A little grassy.
Mouthfeel: Mid-to-full bodied. Heavier than I remember, but very refreshing.
Overall: Tremendously well-balanced APA, with a tilt toward hops. Love this beer and will be buying again. Sweeter than Columbus Brewing Company's pale ale.
