Light brown color. Mild grain flavor with just a little hops. Not a lot there, but decent palate and ok for a session beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Nice deep murky amber pour with a off white head and good retention. That’s where the excitement stops. Dirty dusty malts, some carbonation but overall just a bit bland. Finishes kind of dry and astringent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with an aroma of citrus, rye bread, grain field at harvest time. Flavor is citrus, rye, grain, clean. Has that rye "bite" to it. I enjoy this, but is slightly tame for a rye.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light cola brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was rye. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The ok flavor contained notes of rye and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Earthy hop and caramel aromas. Sharply carbonated and spicy with rye and caramel upfront turning to an earthy pumpernickel finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours auburn with a small beige head. Smells strongly of rye. Taste is bitter with a bit of rye spiciness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and present mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Westside Rye Ale finishes with a kiss of bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz into a can pint glass from big elm. Pours straight brown. Head is full and engulfing, stands about an inch. Aroma is skunky, dirty malts, congused malts, and a sort of rye backbone. Taste is malty like a brown ale, resembles a brown ale, and is non exciting like a brown ale. Chewy granola makes its way in, the rye pretty much does nothing for this. Not too impressed here, and I thought these tasting room additions would be the penicle of the mix pack. Wrong. meh.
