COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boulevard Pale Ale is a smooth, fruity, well-balanced beer with year-round appeal. A variety of caramel malts imparts a rich flavor and amber color, while liberal use of whole Cascade hops adds zest and aroma. Pale Ale is the first beer we brewed, and continues to be a perennial favorite.

Fruity, apricot nose and flavor. Whiff of hops too. Gold amber color. Tingly bitter, not so hoppy per se, but bitter. Medium body. Dark for a PA in color, not so thrilling.

Bottle. Pours a light, clear amber with a short head. Nose is quite muted, with fruit and hops straining to poke their heads out however unsucessfully. Flavors are light-bodied and thin, might be a session brew as it was not unpleasent, just not robust enough. It makes Pale make total sense. Thanks jhammerly for the bottle.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Bottle from Wal-Mart poured into shaker - Pours golden brown with a 2-3 finger, soapy looking head; Lemon and malt with a couple of assorted citrus and some hops to the nose; Mostly malt on the initial taste; It feels pretty solid and not watery at all; Only slightly bitter backtaste, but I almost feel bad writing that since itís barely there; Backtatse turns sweet after a little bit; Another great one from Boulevard! Thank GOD I only live an hour away from their brewery!

This is a good mild pale ale. Lemony citrus and pear aroma. Bit of metallic smell too. Solid maltiness and balanced bitterness.

This beer is an excellent ale. Great straw pale color and a nice nose with a truly balanced palate and finish. It is a mainstay!

I tried this beer at a beer tasting. It had a nice amber color. This beer had a nice citrus, hoppy flavor to it. Very good!

Another bottle of Boulevard from Mike at Bon Vivant. Thanks Mike! Hazy amber with a small ring of bubble around the edges of the glass. Nose is pleasantly hopped and sort of spicy. Light floral notes and a touch of honey an caramel amongst the malt. Taste is sort of standard APA, but this seems a bit on the sweeter and spicier side. Light caramel notes, creamy malts, faint honey, flowery hops and a touch of spice. Body is creamy and smooth with a mild carbonation feel. Finishes with orange peel, spicy hops, light floral notes, sweet malts, and light caramel. The fruits seem to come through moreso at the end (orange, light apricot, and a hint of melon). Not a bad APA at all.

Bottle from eboats Thanks!

Pours rich and gold with a nice, frothy head. Aroma has a tinge of orange, but mostly itís a malty smell. Flavor is surpisingly floral, with hints of honey, citrus, and sweet candy. Hops are very detectable, but they never overpower. This is a dang good beer; perfect for a hot day.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2006
(On tap) Ever so slightly hazy amber with a small, off-white head. A touch of caramel in the nose and a whiff of aroma hops. Medium body with some caramel and a discreet, hoppy finish. Certainly drinkable but not a great APA. 210306

12 oz bottle, via KUEric. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin film of a white head. Fairly active visible carbonation. Light floral hop aroma over a light crystal malt base. Rather generic Pale Ale flavor, moderate hop bitterness, light but crisp malt foundation. Light bodied with an excessively fizzy and prickly mouthfeel. Just an average Pale Ale, which seems to be my general feeling towards this brewery overall. Everything Iíve had seems to be without any major flaws yet they never excite.
