Good Session beer. Not bad, can drink a lot in one sitting and be tired of it.

2002: Still not discontinued. Wonderful example of an english bitter. It’s nowhere near Fuller’s but this will do in a pinch.

A decent amount of flavor considering the alcohol content. Reasonably well balanced. Nothing special, nothing horrible.

Nice appearance. A bit weak alchohol and taste wise. A hint of citrus. A refreshing beer after working out of doors when you want something a bit lighter but good.

Very nice aroma, but it pretty much ends there. abit of a grape juice finish. Not nearly bitter enough to be called a bitter.

Bland, watery, characterless. They’re discontinuing this? Their other, superior, beers will pick up the slack.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2009 Original rating - 12/00 - Not my favorite Boulevard, but since it’s Boulevard it’s still tasty enough.
Amended - I’m not sure an amendment is necessary here, but I’ll do it anyway. Firstly, I was at the brewery last weekend, and was informed that Tenpenny has been discontinued. That being the case, (no pun intended) this will likely be the last 6-pack of this beer that I ever have.
Aroma is hoppy and faintly sour. Very ample head and carbonation. Slightly hazy medium amber color. This is quite a hoppy beer, but not with the traditional American fruity-tasting hops. These are more astringent. Finish is very dry. Malt is not very evident.
I have to say, if Boulevard was going to discontinue any of their beers, this would be the one I would care least about.

An average beer...a little thin.
