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.

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

DuchessOfIowa (69) - Iowa, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Out of the bottle. Medium dark amber hue with nice white head and healthy lacing as I drink. Biscuit and caramel in malt sweetness. Grassy aroma with some pine. A little pepper and citrus in the flavor but again grassy & herbal notes dominate hop profile.

justsayswell (185) - Mission, Kansas, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Orange amber pour. Giant rocky tan head that leaves lots of lacing. Nose is yeasty, caramel malt, honey, grassy hops. Taste is fresh bread, caramel, grassy hops, faint resin, peach. Light bodied. Fairly active carbonation. Finishes slightly sweet and resinous, with lingering caramel. Uncomplicated but well-constructed EPA. Readily available and a great macro alternative.

superspak (3500) - Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 7/5/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy right orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, apple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops, fruity yeast, and moderate malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, apple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, apricot, apple, lemon/orange zest, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of citrus hops, fruity yeast, and moderate malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.4%. Overall this is a very good English pale ale style. All around good robustness and balance of citrus hops, fruity yeast, and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle. Hazy amber pour with a small head. Aroma is all fresh cut grass. Tastes very grassy with a light malt sweetness. Light bitterness in the finish. Kinda boring but still decent.
