2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark copper with golden hue, the smell is mostly golden malts. The flavor is a rich grainy malty brew, moderate rye for the high percentage, finishes with a drying grainy English bitter type finish. Interesting at first but ends up not to interesting, very straight forward.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-29-13. Labeled as "Boulevard Tasting Room Westside Rye Ale." Tangy, malty smell features chocolate chip, chocolate-covered pretzel, toffee, and pizza scents with a bit of dry spice. Pours an effervescent, hazy, medium brown with a small to moderate amount of beige head. Pleasantly unusual appearance. Malty flavor is a bit dryer that I would have anticapated from a malt-forward barley-only beer. Otherwise, I wouldn’t necessarily know it was a rye beer. Roasted malt finish. Medium body. Easy to drink. Ordinary, unremarkable palate effects.

A very good rye ale. Unfortunately I drank it over a week ago and can't remember details of the flavor palate other than it's really good. Will edit next time I drink it.

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.
