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.

Thanks to Mjames for sending me the great collection of Boulevard, You Rock Mike!

Pours with a foggy bronze body and a billowing ivory head. The aroma is malty, lots of caramel, but at the same time I note a wonderful hoppy presence; a bit citric, but more a note of cedar wood chips. Yep, this is more an English Pale Ale, but it’s a damn fine rendition! Nice woodsy notes, pine and cedar from the hops. Then I pull caramel and fine notes of brown sugar and butterscotch. Medium palate and a crisp tart finish… Brewing Done Well!

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Golden orange color with a nice white head. Citrusy, flowery hop aroma. Dry body with a mild hop flavor, fruity citric finish. A drinkable pale ale if nothing else.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 7, 2004
On tap at the Marleybone. This is $2 a pint at my corner pub. Amber in color, solid hop presence without being overdone to make a point. Tan head. The least smooth of the Boulevard ales, but a delicious standard for the price. Can be found most anywhere on tap in the Omaha market.

jde123 (765) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Pours thick, creamy, and hoppy. Tan color with a thick foamy head. Aroma of candy and hops. Very nice taste! Kind of sharp but still pleasant. Very good version of a pale ale.

I'm on a kick of being disappointed by pale ales - this one isn't bad - it in now way resembles the disasters I had at Springfield's microbrewery - but it doesn't have the floral freshness I was craving, either. It seems like it has all the right parts, but in a tired, exhausted sort of way. Rather like a distinguished, but slightly rumpled gentleman with a few faded grease spots on his silk tie.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 29, 2004
I was a little surprised with this brew. Pours a golden yellow with wonderful head with decent lacing. Flavors similar to sierra nevada but with even more bitterness.

A good beer. the color is amber. the flavor is slightly fruity but lacks a strong hop identity.

Solid. Well, perhaps just a tad thin, but not hardly. The biterness seemed to fade after just a bit, but I attribute that more to myb excessive hop intake. I think it's really right on the mark. Kansas being relatively close, this is only the third time I've had it. Each time brought to me. This one I picked up in Portlsnd from a former K.C. occupant. Were it available I could easily see this as a great seesion beer. Decent stuff.
