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.

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.

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.

Cloudy orange in color, little or no head. Carmel and pine aroma. Odd sweet flavor(carmel?) mixed with pine bitterness. Good beer. Thanks PhillyBeer2112!

A nice, easy-sipping pale ale. Smoothly malty with nary a trace of hops. Could use a bit more oomph, but it was a welcome relief from the BudMillerCoors that completely dominated what passed for the beer market in Des Moines, Iowa.

This is a slightly above average APA. It maintains a nice frothy head till the glass is empty. It has a nice hoppiness which balances well with the caramel malt. Somewhat bitter finish. I traded some of Lakefront Brewery's finest for this one, I think I got the worse end of the deal.

3fourths (8100) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2003
Smells like peaches, with a slightly hoppy aroma. This is a very carbonated ale, more so than the many other Boulevard ales, which has me confused why they call this their "flagship beer". Overall this pale is rather average and boring. I may try again in the future, but if there's another pale available I think I'll pass on this one.

Purchased in an annoyingly frat-happy bar in Iowa City, meaning that it was served by an obnoxiously perky waitress who brought it in a glass so cold there were ice chunks floating in the glass. Yes, itís December in Iowa and I was just begging for a beersicle. Thanks, Mitzi. Anyways, itís pretty much your standard pale ale fare. Once it warmed, I noticed some definitely lemony hints in the Cascades. Definite malts, help sweeten out the finish. Light colored, clear bright golden color. Pretty much just a standard, run-of-the-mill pale ale, nothing fancy, nothing bad.

Flashes of hop brilliance in this cascades-based APA. Not at all unlike Sierra Nevada, with a bit less bitterness and hop flavor rush. Nicely balanced and sometimes elegant. Could use a little more punch.
