Not usually a fan of this type of ale. Smell and colour wasn’t particularly remarkable but this was a very drinkable ale. I would definitely drink this if i seen it in a bar.

Bottle - good size thick foamy head, beautiful dark amber color, nice earthy hop aroma and flavor with mildly sweet malt, and mild rye spice - very well balanced - I really like this one!

SPDickerman (1176) - Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2013
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.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 bottle from mix pack. hazy amber with e small creamy head. aroma is lighter than its amber color suggests. a toasty flavored beer. after the rye, it emphasizes on the amber and melanoidin malt. lightish body with quite a bit of carbonation. i enjoy this more and more.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - AUG 13, 2013
12oz. bottle. Aroma of lightly sweet, nutty, toasty caramel malts, fruit and spice, with notes of floral hop, red apple skin, lightly doughy yeast and a touch of citrus. Lightly hazy medium copper color (bottle-conditioned), with a fine, slight, lasting, off-white head. Flavor profile is pleasantly balanced, with a dosage of lightly sweet, honeyish, bready malt and spicy rye tones, combined with a fruity, earthy hop character and finishing with a mild bitterness, lingering lemon citrus and faint pepper. Softly effervescent and mild on the palate, with a quenching feel and a light-medium body. Highly drinkable and enjoyable.

Finhead (1620) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2013
A hazy, brown pour with a reddish hue and a frothy, off-white head. The aroma has spicy rye with bread and some mild chocolate. It has a light, smooth texture with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a dry finish.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Spicy and floral in the nose with a touch of sourdough bread crust and light caramel. Spicy rye, melanoidin rich, floral hops and a balanced finish. A really nice beer.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Pours a deep reddish amber with a medium bubbly/creamy off white head. Aroma of rye, banana, clove, light citrus and caramel. Flavor of carmael, rye, bready malt, pretzels, lightly toasted malt and hints of citrus zest.

vyvvy (5857) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Pours fairly clear bronze with a small off white head. The aroma has creamy malt, some toast, spiciness and a hearty rye presence. Medium body that is fairly smooth and then has a bit of crispness on the finish with the carbonation. Starts with a toasty malt presence with spicy / tangy rye presence along with a spicy peppery hop presence. It also does have a bit of a rye bread sort of taste to it. The finish has a good amount of the hops shining through, but there is a tangy cheesy taste that sticks around (it does fit with the beer - neither cheesy or tangy is meant negatively). Both tasting room beers in the mix 12 pack are very solid.
