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.

Slighty hazed dark amber color with a fairly small head. Citric hops aroma with only a touch of malt. A medium body. Cascade dominates with undertones of caramel malt. A very typical american pale.

Pretty damn good brew. Especially since I donít really dig pale aleís. Very hoppy and tasted a little citrus in it. Re Rate: Not nearly hoppy enough for my tastes now. A decent pale overall but there are so many more better ones out there

Incredible flavor for a pale ale. Full of personality and great with meals.

For anyone who thinks THIS beer was too hoppy (and there were a few), this AINíT all that hoppy. Itís got a nice slight touch of sourness and mild hoppiness thatís relatively low for an APA. A little light on the malt, which is surely why it got penalized in the ratings, but I like its drinkability, though itís not particularly representative of the APA style. Itís sort of a ílight APAí.

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 Iím 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 Iíll 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
