Sledutah (4113) - Utah, USA - JAN 9, 2012
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!

JohnnyJ (4080) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Pours a clear pissy color with very small fizzy white head. Light malt, cheap grain, a bit of citrus and hops, and piss. Not much like a APA, more like a cheap american macro. Not good.

boFNjackson (4024) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle... Poured a pale, watery yellow with a thick white head. I think they forgot what style of beer they were making. Sickening aroma of sour malt, and it just tastes like hoppy seltzer water. Very disappointed in this one to be considered a pale ale.

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 didn’t 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.

At first, the olfactory is a little acrid on the twist off but that clears to a nice sweet beery smell once poured. Color is just a tad more orange than the ubiquitous pale yellow beer. A little bite on the first taste bud impact but it mellows as the session goes on. Finish is rather gentle, almost like a lager. Not bad. Perhaps even sessionable with it’s lower alky level. I usually don’t care much for APA, but this is not offensive to say the least. Big thanks goes out to riversideAK for a chance to rate this not so local brew!

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2006 Very clear and pale yellow ... headless. Corny nose. Thin and watery texture. Malts were reminiscent of wet bread with honey and a little DMS on top. Ripe apple notes were nice, albeit subdued. No head, but rather carbonated mouthfeel ... a little chewy, too. Finish was dry and relatively lifeless. A few seconds later, in the aftertaste, some bitterness (with a hint of toast) surfaced. Not quite enough to balance things out, though. Yawn.

BillKismet (3291) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2002
More akin to an American standard, Blue Boar is pale gold and exudes a slightly sweet aroma. This beer definitely reminds us that Henry’s is a macro brewer--as it is bland tasting and lacking character, though smooth.

oldrtybastrd (3225) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2005
Pours a nice golden yellow color. Aromas of malts, hops, and a touch of pine. Flavor has a nice crisp taste with a clean dry finish.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 31, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 Pour yellow with not much head. Not much nose. Not much flavor. Not an APA in my opinion, but a very average pilsner. Almost a drain pour.

Bottle. Nose is noticeably hoppy, but the hops smell more like pepper than one of the traditional hop flavors. Taste isn’t all that bitter, but there’s a little bite to it, along with a faint hint of citrus. Not a lot of substance to the flavor, but drinkable.
