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.

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.

Aubrey (3489) - 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.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin, poorly retained, white head, over a fizzy, yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is hints of cereal from the malts, hints of pine from the hops, minimal esters....taste is light Pils malts, hints of pine with a minimally bitter finish from the hops.....mouth feel light, watery, carbonation makes a soda quality. This is not an American Pale Ale. The hops are very minimally present. It is almost light enough to be a Pale Lager. BJCP 4/2/7/3/4

Very light blonde color and light flavor as well. Malts and hop taste is present, thin body overall. Clean and crisp, but just doesnt have much kick.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 29, 2011
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)

Couldn’t tell the difference between this and a lager. Not sure what makes it an APA. Not much aroma and taste, kind of bland.

mjg74 (2824) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Not a real good attempt at an APA. Tastes pretty much like a cheap lager. Not any hops to speak of. Some graininess.

I did not like it the first time I tried it, but after the 2nd and 3rd time it is not bad stuff and it is cheap.

Bottle at The Burrito House (PDX). Sugary sweet malt nose. Pale straw color. Sweet, cookieish maltiness, very light citrus hop, light cake frosting finish. Thin. Claims to be brewed with Cascade hops, but they are not detectable. This was the only beer on the menu that I hadn’t tried before, and so I gave it a go. Pretty "crafty" stuff.
