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.

Until the arrival of Single Wide, this was my go-to Boulevard beer. That shift has mostly to do with my preference for Citra hops to Cascade, but this is still really nice. Lots of pine and a good balance of sweet breads. Nothing too strong, but very sessionable.

Bottle pour into pint glass from Whole Foods. Aroma is mild yeast and malts. Appearance is hazy orange red with nice sparkle and massive 3 finger width head and nice lacing. Taste is sweet malts with some yeast and bitterness. Palate is medium bodied with average texture, soft carbonation and bitter/sweet mix finish. Overall, weak aroma but otherwise is reasonably solid.

Robe blonde et limpide, peu de mousse. Arômes biscuit, pain et écorce d’agrumes. Goût d’orange amère, résine, herbal. Final fruits jaunes. Assez longue en bouche. Une bonne pale ale.

Pours a nice cloudy orange amber color. About two fingers head. Rocky retention and some lacing.

Aroma is a little unusual, I’ll call it bright citrus. Very fresh, sweet citrus. Almost like a lemonade sweet citrus. I smell some malts. It’s also a little doughy.

Taste is not as bitter as most of the style. Yes, there’s hops, but more citrus and floral than bitter. Plenty of toasted malts, and they balance the hops well. I would say it leans toward sweet. The citrus comes in at the finish. It’s not overwhelming, it’s there, and it’s nice.

Mouthfeel is pretty dry. It is super smooth, super drinkable. Just the right bitterness.

Overall, this is a really good APA. It’s clean, fresh, and so pleasant. Good session beer. It’s not as bold and hop forward as most, but it’s well rounded and man, they really hit a home run here. Well, maybe not a home run, but no less than a triple. Try it!

This one fell flat for me. Not much flavor. Malty and piney with a slight bitter finish. This is boulevards worst effort to date. Pours copper with a cloudy appearance. Meh

12oz bottle pours a clear amber with medium head and little lacing. Aromas of malt, bread, skunky, dough. Not bad but not great.

Auburn body with off white head. Citrus aroma and hints of pine. Taste is tropical fruits, grapefruit, and light malts. Decently balanced american pale ale.

Enjoyable but a little bit bland. Mild hop flavor with some caramel malt. Less aggressive then recipes of today.

A nice balance between slightly sweet and bitter. Another good Boulevard brew.
