Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale
While out at dinner on Mount Washington in Pittsburgh at the Grandview Saloon, I ordered a Great Lakes Burning River Pale Ale to go with dinner. The beer pours an amber color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of caramel, lemon, and pine hops. The taste is sweet with caramel making a great base for the beer. There is a good pine and lemon citrus accent with some orange and tangerine mixed in as well. The alcohol content is 6.0% ABV. This was a wonderful pale ale and I would definitely order it again. It goes very well with crab meat, which was part of the meal that I ordered. It has a great bitters and a complimentary sweetness that was much better that I had expected.
