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: FEB 1, 2004 Golden in color, small white head that leaves quickly, light malty aroma, clean balanced malt hop flavor, watery and thin mouthfeel, really light, crisp clean finish, all in all a decent english pale ale.

Amber to brown in color with a slight tan head that willingly stays with the beer throughout. Sligh brown sugar aroma with a faint whiff of hops. Flaavors of chocolate, caramel and roasted coffee. The start is quite flavorful and the finish nicely bitter. The yeast pour creates a fuller body, denser head and slightly bready aroma.

I found it too hoppy/bitter. Tastes exactly like a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale to me, another overrated overly hoppy pale ale. Appearance & aroma wise it was good, it is quality, but I think hops and alcohol flavor are far too dominant.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2008 Compared to the best pale ale in existance, Bass, this one is a good impression.

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2005 Golden hue with a slight haze. Malts were slightly bready, with a small pinch of yeasty bread dough. Hops were citrusy (mostly grapefruit). Not overtly charismatic, but easily quaffable, making a nice session beer. Kind of refreshing, too.

A great workhorse beer, my choice for a session brew whenever I’m out and about in the Kansas City area. Nice aroma, flavor on the bitter side though slightly lacking in malt balance, and perhaps a bit thin in mouthfeel, but when I need throw back a few I’ll never turn this one down. Like a Stratocaster or a Buick -- nothing fancy, but it does what it does very well. Kudos to the folks on Southwest Boulevard, K.C

Nicely hoppy - somewhat citric. Medium body - fairly lacking in malt balance, but not overly bitter. Nice abundance of hop flavor. A good drinking pale ale.

A decent Pale Ale. Nice Kick for the taste buds.

a rather mediocre pale ale. Not that I even usually like pale ales...

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 I had this on tap at Classic Sports in Hot Springs, AR. I had a great time and the beer was good too. A fine example of the style. Not quite as good as Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but still good.
