2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle poured a pale amber gold color with a small white head that left very little lacing on the glass. Aroma was cereal grains and citrusy notes. Taste was a light malty sweetness with a decent hoppy bitter finish. Certainly didnít taste like Cascade hops, as I have had many Cascade hopped beers since and all were much better than this one. Just tasted like another macro swill pale lager to me.

Watery and flat as far as texture goes. Hardly any flavour. Nothing much to it.

1 from a 6-pack purchased on 08/21/1996 from a Liqour Depot store in Calgary, AB. Tasting scribble notes are as follows: "This has a light bitter taste that isnít harsh. Gold colour, tastes like cereal and pine cones. Smells like a typical ale." I purchased a 6-pack of this after a Calgary Stampeders CFL football game in which our team won 23-21!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Straw color, very "skunky" aroma, thin mouthfeel, little to no taste, easy to drink but pretty boring.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On first impressions, like a glorified Molsons Golden. Pours with medium head that quickly disappeared. Standard US pale aroma, taste a little more creamy (within the realms of a light lager) and not as crazily fizzy as e.g. PBR. Very little bitterness in the finish. Overall decent but not Full Sailís finest by a long way.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This rating is a historical assessment of what the Blue Boar Ale was. It is still a fresh, crisp, lightly maltly and hoppy ale but overall its fame suffers from the original brewery (Weinhardts, Portland, OR) no longer making it. It tastes like a real good, large brewery, retail beer should taste. Because it comes from my end of the world (N.W. USA) I have a fondness for it. Nothing goes down better than a ice cold HW Blue Boar Ale on a hot summer day. Who gives a hoot what color the bottle is... keep it cold and drink it empty!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from the state store
Appearance: Pours crystal clear light golden with a medium sized white head that dissipate fairly quickly leaving some spotty lacing, good carbonation
Aroma: Skunky, sweet caramel malts and honey
Taste: Skunky, grainy, corn and bitterness
Why a green bottle? Tastes like a juiced up Heineken, not for me!

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a bubbly bright gold color with smallish white head. Sour-hoppy-grainy aroma. Taste - nothing stands out. Corn, hops, hay and grass. Prickly carbonation. Light and refreshing, no off flavors but overall, this is pretty forgettable.

Either this "Irish Style Ale" tastes a lot like Heineken, or Heineken is an "Irish Style Ale". Apparently Blue Boar is an American Pale Ale in the end. Hmmm.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle. Rating #159. Clear yellow/gold pour with a light white head. All skunk in the nose, it overpowers anything else that might have there. Flavor was the same, more skunk, why would a brewer use green bottles. (1539)
