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.

This product is a notable step up from standard BMC. It has a distinct hoppy flavor that emulates a "real" pale ale. Overall itís an OK value for me when on sale, especially for lawnmower swill and considering similarly priced BMC

Not as good as the private reserve, but still a good western beer to have every once in a while.

Not bad, not what it used to be. Ruined by Miller. Once one of the best "non- micros", now just a hoppier version of MGD. If you drink it, pour it in a glass. Something about the Miller carbonation system just doesnít work for this brew. When poured, the carbonation is knocked out and the taste is much cleaner. Yeah, I know...all you snobs are saying , this dummy pours this crap in a glass...

Not a pale ale like Sierra Nevadaís, but more like Rolling Rock. I actually prefer this to Rolling Rock. Itís very smooth, very drinkable, but lacking in overall flavor. Also leaves a bit of a dry aftertaste that isnít very pleasant. Still, itís a great thirst-quencher and a reasonably good deal considering itís average cost ($4.99/6)

When first starting with beer, this became my favorite. Now, I cannot stomache it. The term ískunkyí Iíve seen surely fits the smell. It makes you want to turn your head. Not much flavor here, but the extra carbonation hides that a bit. Itís a little hoppy, with the taste of corn. Not one Iíd ever buy again.

I found this beer to be a very good drinker. I enjoy kicking back and putting a few of these bad boys down. It is not a thick rich ale , it is thin but delivers a good taste and solid finish

Pours very thin with a laced head. Smells like corn. Advertised as a PA this beer tastes like a watered down lager. At seven dollars a twelve pack, this beer is an easy way to impress anyone with out a palate and not break your budget. Oh Henry!

Bottle - Not my favorite beer from the Henry Weinhardís collection. My friend got me started with Private Reserve, but my favorite has to be the Blonde. The Blue Boar to me has a bitter taste.
