Day 216 Drink: Great Lakes Engine 20
It was great to make a visit to Great lakes Brewing Co. in Cleveland last week. The brewery was packed with the diner crowd and we could smell the brewery in operation as we walked toward the pub. A walleye dinner went very nicely with the ultra fresh beer.
Great Lakes Engine 20 is a golden colored American pale ale that pours with a moderate white foam head. The beer has a very slight smoke note to the aroma. The 6 percent alcohol by volume beer has a decent level of hops, but it is not overpowering. Notes of citrus in the finish.
