One of the most complex malt aromas I’ve ever encountered in a non-bock lager. A great underpinning of hops, too. Beautifully layered complex sweet malt with long, unfolding flavor and ending with a gorgeous long dry finish. Wow. I can’t believe how fine a job this ale brewery did with this lager. Simply wonderful.

Surprisingly good - rich and malty with brown sugar tones. A nice warm taste, slight spice in the aftertaste.

Thanks to hey_kevin for this one. This was a decent Amber Lager with a dark amber color and thin off-white head. No real lacing to speak of. Rich caramel malt aroma. Rather strong malt flavor with a nice finish. Not bad at all.

I really dig this style of beer. Finally, I believe I’ve found my niche in the beer world (outside of Belgian ales of course)

Not a bad lager, but nothing special. It has a bit too much alcohol in the aroma, and the taste is just a generic lager flavor. Better than Heinie’s, Leinie’s, or Sam, though, and usally cheaper. If you like plain-jane functional lager this one would be a good bet.

The first whiff had me wondering, but true to fashion, boulevard settled any doubts, it’s a fine lager.Crisp and not imposing, I wish I had some pizza.

This beer is not a munich dunkel, it is, however an excellent amber lager. Sharp tight noble hop aroma. Clear amber in color. Flavor hits your taste buds with a whack of sharp clean maltiness finishing nicely with tongue drying hops. This is an excellent fall lager.

I thought this beer was very good. The commercial description pretty much says it all.
