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.

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

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Just another ho-hum and uninteresting pale ale. Add it to the ever growing heap of the ubiquitous.

Originally rated on 9/16/08. A hazy yellow and orange tinged body, off white cap, good lace left on the glass. Aroma of lemon, and pine. Tastes of sweet malts and finishes with a hop bitterness.

Draft at The Beer Market at College Town U of R. Menu said Park Ave. Pale Ale made by Boulevard. Must be this. Amberish pour with a thin white head. A average amount of hops aroma. No much citrus in the flavor. There was pine and bitterness. Medium mouthfeel.

Nice well balanced pale ale. The aroma and taste do not overwhelm you with hops. Good choice for all the non hop heads out there. Caramel malt is a welcome addition. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lowe1983 (1517) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2016
Pours a darker amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel and a hint of floral hops. Flavor is the same but a little stronger of the floral hops. A little thin on the mouth feel as well.

Darker yellow from a bot in the elrey del mundo glass. Nice head. Slight hop perfume aroma. Fairly beefy hop taste impact, a little duller perhaps. Seems like more than 6%. Gets a little astringent towards the end. Almost falls into the IPA style on the finish. L102015

Alengrin (4529) - BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2016
Boulevard’s first, apparently available in Belgium now that they have been taken over by Moortgat. Draught at Antwaerps Bierhuyske. Thick, lacing, creamy, egg-white head over a pure, orangey, lightly hazy amber beer. Aroma sadly ruined by fairly strong DMS (cooked white cabbage) along with toasted bread, caramel, potato, dried apricot, grass, celery and white pepper. Clean, mildly fruity flavor, dried apricot touch, medium carbo, slick and rather simple caramelly and toasted malt body, mild grassy and lightly floral hop character along with some yeast bitterness but maltiness keeps prevailing. I expected an APA to be honest, but this is clearly an EPA, to the extent this label is still used nowadays; reminded me more of a spéciale belge than an American pale ale and the DMS kind of ruined this for me.

Pours copper with nice head leaving a nice lacing. Aroma: interesting aroma herbs, a touch of "horse blanket" (in a pleasant way, within limits of a pale ale), some malt. Taste: Pretty smooth, but at the same time a nice herbish character, particularly nice in the palate. Interesting.
