deyholla (10221) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a near white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and rye with a bit of underlying earthiness. Flavor is some what dull with light grain, bread and just a hint of rye.

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2013
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.

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy. For some reason I made no notes on appearance, so I’ll score it average. The nose is sweet grains, lightly caramelized. The palate is much the same, maybe a touch of cooked apple. Missing the rye character for the caramel.

phaleslu (9429) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2013
12 oz. bottle via in-person STL trade. Pours a mostly clear amber, hazed slightly by some tiny suspended sediment in the glass, with a small off-white head that settles into a film and small ring. Aroma of rye, caramel, tea, toast, grass, a bit of pepper, and sweat. Flavor of rye, toast, caramel, very dry grains, leaves, and wood chips. Light-bodied, with a dry, spicy mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. A little disappointing based on normal Boulevard output.

czar (7892) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2013
pours cloudy alomost dirty copper with a small off-white head, little retention. nutty and lightly fruity malts, faint though, spicy and earthy, very herbal and grassy too, almost mineral. moderate carbonation, light body - watery, almost harsh and undesirable spicy-earthy-mineral finish. meh.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2013
12/27/13. 12oz courtesy bottle from pepsican! Reddish pour with a nice khaki head that sticks around and laces well. Malty aroma, a little tang and spice, caramel. Malty flavor, earthy and floral, a little spice. Not bad.

bytemesis (6982) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear amber, medium off-white head that dissipates fairly quickly with nice lacing on the glass. Light aroma with malty notes, grain, biscuit, cardboard. Flavor is a bit corny, medium sweet, some rye spice, grain, caramel, biscuit. Kind of vienna lager like. Light body.

blutt59 (6511) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 18, 2013
bottled, reddish amber in color , nice caramel and metal nose, flavor has some rye and pine but not overly so, nice balance although somewhat softer than expected, nice finish
