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.

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

heemer77 (5102) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 10, 2003
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 An old standby of mine and a great session beer. A dark gold body with plenty of carbonation. Smoother on tap. The aroma is citrus and dark bread along with some fresh cut wood. The taste is fruity with peaches and oranges. Maybe my palate has changed, but I thought this used to have a hint more bitterness.

A not bad pale. Fairly fruity and hopped taste, yet not overly so. I'm not sure about that malt from the commercial description, it is not very noticeable.

davesarman (159) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2003
Subtle, earthy hop aroma. Definitely NOT Cascade hops. Nice light copper color, only slightly hazy. The label says bottle conditioned, but there is only a very small amount of yeast in the bottle. Flavor profile is moderate malt, with a little hop back bone. FInishes dry, slightly hoppy. Not a bad beer, not a great beer.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2003
A nice well-balanced pale ale. Aroma is light and piney with some detectable hops in the nose. The flavor is a little malt dominated, but nicely hoppy in the aftertaste. Very easy to drink and would be good for a session.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Caramel-copper bodied, with an off-white ring of foam lacing the glass. Pine hops aroma, with some bitter notes. Caramel and toasty malts balancing the piney hops flavors. Little citrus. A nice session APA from the folks at Boulevard.
