Poured the Burning River into a pint glass.

A - Nice amber colored beer has a finger and half of golden head. Looks like a pale ale should.

S - Nice hop bitterness, some malt sweetness comes through as well.

T - Very tasty creamy pale ale. Again some hoppiness initially, but the sweet malts come through mid palate. This brew has some body to it. Really nice.

M - I have to admit this is nice and creamy, medium carbonation.

O - Great Lakes does a fine job here, the best Pale Ale I've had to date.
Highly Recommended ! Cheers!
