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.

Hoppy aroma but also a little like dishwater. Deep gold color. Average sized head. Excellent lace. No visible carbonation. Not served very cold. Some hops. Smooth. Nice subtle, enjoyable flavor.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2003
A decent Pale ale. Robust malt flavor with a generous amount of hops. An easy drinking ale that one could drink all night.

celogan (201) - Oroville, California, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Pretty decent brew. Pourd medium dark golden color. Kept slight head with nice lacing throughout. Good carbonation and nice toasty flavor with some citruslike essences. Good brew worth having again.

Much much better than Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat. Crisp and citriusy from the first sip. Halfway through the bottle turns bitter but not overpowering. Nice touch Excellent brew.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2003
Nice gold straw color, one finger high of dense, thickly puffed vanilla ice cream colored top. Lace in some tiny spots and strings. Smell is mildly subdued of lemon and grapefruit with a bit of dryish malts. Taste is a fast start of caramel sweet malts, kinda breadish that turns right into mild fruits of lemon and grapefruit, sort of a dulled juicyness. Quite easy with a smooth carbonation and fruity mild sweetness and a fabulous backing of toasty breadish malts. Medium body feel, a bit thin in places, but would suit for a good session beer as this stuff goes down easily.

Darkover (1517) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Dark copper color with a medium head. Faint hop aroma. Flavor of hops and bready malt. Very drinkable. Thanks to Dogbrick for the trade.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Citrus hoppy aroma and slightly cloudy, wispy head that tries to leave rings but not quite. Orange and hops (orange peel?) and a clean finish on the bitter side. I'd like to compare this and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale side by side. I like it.

P-tor44 (886) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 30, 2003
nice strong floral hop aroma with a soft round malt backdrop. mildly cloudy bronze color. light taste with a well developed full hop flavor. beggining is tangy, overall very citrusy. a nice apa that i intially bought to drink while riding in the back of a pickup truck on my way home from Laramie. luckily i fell asleep and still had 2 more to rate when i got home.

Bottle RAF: Clear golden color with a sweet dandelion aroma. Good balance between soft sweetness and bitter flavor. Some complexity is lacking though.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2003 RAF: Rather bland with medium bitterness. No assertive nose, and is as a matter of fact rather skunky. RE-RATE 6/3/03: Much better in bottle than at RAF! Quite a floral, citrusy character to it. Not terribly hoppy, but very well balanced and highly drinkable.
