COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A light-bodied, aromatic, Irish-style specialty ale. Double-hopped with PAcific Northwest Cascade hops for the flavor and smoothness of a traditional ale without bitterness of heaviness.

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.

This is by far the best macro beer available.

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.

A great beer form Henry Weinhards

Very disapointing. Henry Weinhards Private Reserve is very good, but the pale ale is horrid.

maxhits (172) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - MAR 25, 2002
Pours with a slightly hazy gold color and produces a thick head of foam that is fairly long-lived. Flavor is fairly straight-forward with a good malt body and a small amount of sweetness.

Better than reg Henrys and good with food but must be ice cold

More akin to an American standard, Blue Boar is pale gold and exudes a slightly sweet aroma. This beer definitely reminds us that Henryís is a macro brewer--as it is bland tasting and lacking character, though smooth.
