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.

Thanks for sending me this one, Jeff. A: The pour is amber in color with a finger of fizzy off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. S: A very floral and perfumey nose to this. A bit too much grass for my liking in there with some bready malts and a touch of herbal hops. A little bit of citrus peel. T: Strong citrus flavor, but it’s almost acidic. Plenty of floral and herbal hop notes with a light breadiness. The flavor seems a bit watery to me. Not a really strong flavor, even for a pale ale. M: Light in body with a medium to high carbonation. O: Sort of a disappointing beer for what is usually a pretty easy style to brew.

FatPhil (8997) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 18, 2013
355ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Simple sweet fruity aroma, pretty typical for an American-style Pale Ale. Candy sugary retronasals, again something fruity about it, but also a little earthy, some rusty iron. Otherwise, slightly watery body, and with crisp carbonation. Not much to this, it’s a simple sweet bitter with an acidic bite. A bit dead in the mouth, even though it’s bottle conditioned - probably because it’s too fizzy. I do like the bitter tingle of the hops in the finish though. Could rehydrate on this on a hot day.

Bottle @ home. Red-orange appearance with a medium sized white head. Mild to medium citrus hoppy, bready malty nose. Earthy, citrusy hoppy, sweet, bready malty flavor. Crisp, citrus hoppy finish. Average or slightly better APA.
