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.

Poured yellow/orange with a thick white head. I smelled this one right away. Big fruity notes of orange and grapefruit. Nicely hopped and great flavor. Very good.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Poured medium yellow-orange with a big malty head. There's just a vague sweet aroma, but the flavor is a zesty wonderful blend of fruity hops and malt. Excellent.

antisnobJP (275) - St. Michael, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2003
Bright copper color with a white, frothy head. Smells of citrus and the shredded wood used for hamster bedding.(not a bad thing). Easy drinking Americn pale with grapefruity hop flavor and decent fruity malt flavor well balanced. A little sweeter and easier quaffing than bottled SNPA. Dry finish with a little sourness. A decent and fairly priced APA.

Great fruit and floral aroma with cherries. Standard pale ale appearance. Flavors of hops and fruit. This is what a pale ale should be.

JMerritt (1828) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2003
Orange with a medium-sized white head. Citric hop aroma with a touch of carrot. Flavor is more citric, grapefruit-y hops. Very dry, sour finish. Hello, malt? Where are you? Why didn't you come to this party? A very raw pale ale.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Reminds me of my very first batch of homebrew; a SNPA clone, only this is quite a bit better. Pours a cloudy amber with a decent head and some lacing. The scent is what first caught me with this beer. Nicely hopped! Some citrus notes, but they're very subtle. Taste is of hops, a little yeasty, though, but well balanced with the malt. It's better than average but nothing special. Mouthfeel is very creamy; nicely done. It's not as crisp as SNPA but it's smoother. Overall this is pretty good considering it didn't come from the PNW... < smirk > Complements of MJR. Thanks, Mark!

Coppery red, Big head. Dusty, sawdust aroma. Earthy haybale, grassy flavors, followed by a crispy, dry bitter finish. Very easy to drink.

This is one of the best pale ales I've ever had. I would for sure get this again. Smooth and tasty.

The beer to order when you are in KC at either Houstons or The Plaza Three, goes great with a Prime Rib. Very light does not fill you up before you eat. You can definatly taste the hops.

Color of a penny, small but lasting head. Good flavor but a little on the thin side for the style. Overall a better than average APA
