3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rich clear golden color with an impressive white pils head. Almost no aroma, perhaps a little wet bread. Clean crisp American pilsner taste. Not real flavorful, but well balanced. Sweet pale malt and maple syrup are present along with a slight hop bitterness that is still more assertive than most American macros. Very pleasant and refreshing, not corny. Remember, ratings should always be against others of the same style, not based on what your favorites are. With that, I must rate this fairly high.

A good easy drinker. Not much of a beer for the beer snobs, but drank it with a frozen pizza and say give me another. A really weak light pilsner, but good nonetheless. This one isn’t competing with Urquell!!

Pours clear yellow, with a thin bubbly white head that disappears. Aroma is sweet grass. Murky slightly bitter taste with grain and a watery texture.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
In the bottle from Beertopia poured into a vintage Storz fluted pilsner glass. Thanks to Hurrisnow. This is Great-Grandpa’s beer! Golden in color, a bit dark perhaps. A medium to small white frothy head disappates rapidly. Mild grainy aroma. Outstanding white Brussels lace. At first sip, this comes across exactly like a Falstaff, but without the blast of corn. Something on the dry side with little sweetness, this has a substantial grainy finish. More carbonated than any other Boulevard product. If one wanted to make a retro beer, this is EXACTLY how to do it. If a regional brewer wants to capture the BMC drinker, this would be the flavor profile to use. This is a lawnmower beer! Joe Sixpack in KC should get behind his city and drink the hell out of this beer.

12oz bottle. Pours bright golden color, thin white head. Basic and expected appearance. Aroma of straw and some grass featured. Nice grain and a bit peppery. Decent fizz. Flavor of pale sweet grain. Finishes with a bit of a medicinal hop earthiness.

12oz bottle from suzygreenberg. Light clear yellow with little head. Grassy boring nose...body is kind of flat and meh...watery and not much going on. Not horrible but nothing impressive. Supermarket beer.

Light grass and grain on the nose. Pale golden pour. Soft grain, bread, and grass. Lingering light grain. Kind of clean, but not very assertive. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
POurs light golden, fizzy head with medium lacing. Aroma is grainy, pale malts, a slight honey note, very macro-lager-ish. Flavor is initially sweet, mild grain flavor, a sweet note, once again honeyish, leading to a unexpected toasty malt section, finishing extremely cleanly, almost disappointingly so. A very straightforward and clean example of American style lager, but a somewhat mediocre pils.

Post GTMW burned out after dinner beer in the hotel room, thanks csbosox: Clean golden hue with a small fizzy head. The aroma has notes of herbal and grassy hops, hint of pear and apple esters, biscuity and grainy malts. The taste is crisp noble hops, grainy malts, and some herbal spicy tones upon the finish. The mouth feel is nice and lively, mostly clean and crisp. Very well played for the style, good solid brew.
