COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like many American burgs, our town was once home to a number of small, regional breweries. As they disappeared, so too went the full-flavored but easy drinking classic American lager. Today, we salute these bygone breweries and revive their legacy with Boulevard Pilsner: 100% malt, real hop character, unpasteurized. It’s the taste of tradition.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2010 On tap at the LBG brewfest in last September. Brilliant gold color. Lots of herbal and earthy hops in the aroma along with a biscuty background. Maybe a touch too grassy. A bit of biscut & malt sweetness along with a strong hop presence, all earthy and herbal. This was the newer (and better) test batch.

Bottled commercial version
The bottled version is a little more mainstream than the test batch I rated. Although I really wanted a prima pils, stoudt pils or even a lagunita’s pils, Boulevard went in another direction. Although I was somewhat dissapointed at first, I do like the price point, widespread availibility and 12 pack option. This is moderately more expensive than a 12 pack of BMC bottles and much better. This is pretty much to style for a CAP, although this version swung the balance a little more to the malt at the expense of the hops. All malt grain bill with some munich malt giving a nice, but subtle, maltiness. The hops are fairly light in the aroma and subtle in the flavor, but are floral and delicate. This is a very enjoyable beer for sipping on the patio on a hot day. I tend to vote with my wallet, and I would have to guess I have purchased 2-3 cases of this beer so far. Don’t expect to be overwelhmed by this beer, but do stop to appreciate it’s subtle flavors on the first bottle and easy drinkability on the following few.

On tap at the 2008 Boulevard Microbrewers Festival. The pour was clear golden with some white head. Corn and noble hops in the nose. Lots of hop flavor with decent pilsner malt character. Medium body. High carbonation. Dry finish. Good beer.

12oz. test bottling, thanks to John Bryan! Aroma features a blend of grassy, herbal, spicy hop, pale, grainy, malt and some very light, doughy yeast. Light golden in color with a faint greenish cast, head is very fine, white and lasting. Flavor is similarly well-balanced between the dry, crackery, bready malts and moderately bitter, herbal hop character. Finish is snappy and crisp with a dry, appropriately effervescent feel, lingering peppery spice and a light-medium body. Good Pils and a nice warm-weather choice.
