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.

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 (3179) - 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.

Terminus (3283) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 14, 2003
bottle-well, another somewhat of a let down from this fine brewery. pale straw, semi cloudy appearance. aroma was grassy, grainy and little presence of hops. flavor was sweet and full bodied with hints of pine sap. a good quafer i must say.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2003 (bottle) Orange-amber. Light hops aroma. Slightly sweet up front. Grapefruit/orange finish.

Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Pours a hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head. Thin lacing. Aroma is lightly hopped and a little citrusy. Medium-bodied and crisp with a decent hops flavor through and through. Very little malt but it is there. The finish is crisp and rather hoppy. This beer really does nothing to offend, although it doesn't really take any chances either.

lemonlovr (190) - Orland Park, Illinois, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Slightly sweet aroma, coppery in color. Bit of a hop bite on the back of the tongue. Decent pale but certainly not the best.

Kodos (205) - USA - SEP 21, 2003
On Tap. Red-Amber color, good head with a lasting lacing on the bottle all the way down. Slight caramel-malt with a decent Cascade overtone. Decent hop bite in the finish. Just under middle of the road Pale.
