2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Just too damn thin. This isnít really all that bad, especially for the price, but itís not good either. Weinhardís is the ultimate middle of the raod beer, but the Blue Boar seems somehow more average if thatís possible. Iím not the biggest pale fan in the world anyhow, but this is just too damn thin. Easy to put down, easy on the wallet, but I need a beer to kick my ass a little.

Better than most grocery store beers. I had kind of expected a bit more oomph somewhere but it never showed up. An easy drinking brew anyhow.

Attractive medium gold color and surprisingly strong head for a macro. Aroma neither here nor there, but not objectionable by any means. Flavor is fairly well-balanced between hops and malt and keeps both relatively light. This product doesnít try to make a loud statement--a smart approach for a mass-marketed offering. Nothing outstanding here, but very drinkable--quite possibly the best of the Henry Weinhardís line-up.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Worse than the Private Reserve - alot more vegetal and skunky aromas and flavors. The bitter flavors just donít work in this beer - its not clean crisp bitter tasting, but like I said, skunky bitter.

This beer is a lot better than their amber, however it is nothing special. Good beer if you donít have much money and you donít want to get sick on the really cheap shit.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2005 A good brew, especially when price is factored in. Drink this and people may think youíre high class while in college. Nothing really special here, but itís solid.
