Ohio, United States
greatlakesbrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
A toast to the Cuyahoga River Fire! For rekindling an appreciation of the Great Lakes region’s natural resources (like the malt and hops illuminating this fresh Pale Ale). Crisp and bright, with refreshing flickers of citrus and pine that ignite the senses (not our local waterways).

Poured from 12oz bottle into glass. Label is stamped 'For freshest taste, please enjoy by: 02/18/18'.
Clear, pale amber colored body. Two finger off white head settles to bubbly cap and ring. Rings and strings of lacing.
Caramel malt aroma, with citrus/pine hops.
Taste has mild pine/citrus hops with caramel malt. Slight zing at the end but minimal bitterness.
Medium mouth feel, with good carbonation support.
Well balanced and full flavored beer, made for session work. Very refreshing, without palate fatigue.

Poured from the bottle into a chilled pint glass. Extremely well balanced. Moderately hopped with a nice malt undertone. Amber in color with a with a robust, white head that laces nicely. A very nice beer indeed. Could easily enjoy several of these in one sitting.

This is an above average beer. It pours a nice deep golden color with a finger of off white head. There was some lacing left on the glass. I noticed a nice bitterness, I think it was from the 45 IBU's which to me is pleasant and mild.

Copper colored beer with a rapidly fading head. The usual pine and citrus of an APA but not overboard which I like. I am not a big fan of hoppy beers but this one is OK.
