3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a huge, fluffy white head. Aroma is tough to nail down but Iím getting some lemon and general fruitiness. Taste is mild bitterness up front, biscuit and bread notes. Really carbonated mouth feel, almost effervescent. Overall a tasty brew that I would have again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Persimmon in color with a straight white head that is very frosty and long lasting. Moderate grains (wheat, rye) in the nose with some subtle dried nectarine and cookie malts - clean but not overly pungent. Moderately bitter taste, a bit astringent and medicinal, with leafy hops and orange zest highlights. A bit of white pepper in the finish.

Bottle. Toffee malt and light hay/pepper aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet sugary toffee malt and mildly bitter herbal hay flavor. Not bad.

12oz bottle. Huh, an ESB that sort of tastes like an ESB from the UK. Bitter and tasty, clean golden malt body. A pretty great session beer. Not sticky or dark caramel like most. Pretty straightforward, easy going.

12 oz. bottle from foppa78- thanks again, Mat! Pours a clear orange-gold with a finger of off-whtie head that leaves some thin lace streaks and settles unevenly. Aroma of grass, straw, biscuit, earth, and mild spice. Flavor of grass, leaves, biscuit, tea, and not much else. Not much flavor in total, actually, but some bitterness on the back end. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a thin, smooth, earthy mouthfeel. Not much to it, but drinks nice and easy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle given to me by Boulevard guys at Surly, thanks so much! Pours a clear bronze orange with active carbonation rising from the base of the glass long after itís poured. Foamy white head fades to thick wisp across the meniscus and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and light hop presence. Flavor is mild and malty, with a pleasant English ale hoppiness that is understated. Alcohol is well-masked, and this beer gains complexity as it warms. Medium bodied, mild carbonation, malty finish.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Flavorless brew. Bitter, tart, carb on the tongue is prominent. No real distinguishing features. A very sad brew by Boulevard.
