BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Great Lakes Brewing Co.
Ohio, United States
greatlakesbrewing.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

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).

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from the bottle into a snifter at around 45°F

Appearance: Pale amber color with a two finger off white/light beige head

Smell: Sweet, toasted, bready malts with undertones of citrus hops.

Taste: Same as smell. Wish there was a little more hops to balance out the malts

Mouthfeel: Light medium body; Smooth, dinkable, and refreshing

Overall: For me, this is one of those beers that I enjoyed more when I was first getting into crafts. Now it's too malty and not enough hops for my liking. More like an EPA. However, it's still tasty and easy to go down. If there were to be a pale ale version of Victory's Hop Devil, this would be it. Great Lakes is very reasonably priced in my area so that's what keeps me coming back to this beer.
