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.

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.

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)

BuckeyeBoy (2878) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Bottle Pours out a clear gold topped with a foam white head. Aroma of grain and light malt. Tast pretty much the same. A touch of hops at the end. Not much of a Pale to me.

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.

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.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JAN 14, 2004
Pale, foamy, looks and smells like skunked Heineken. Hints of paperclip and armpit. This is the worst of the bunch, a true drain pour.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2001
A good pale ale, not the mainstream pales, but top notch. I’m not a pale ale fan so I rated it a bit lower than It merits, but need to be truthful. Nice malt nose, fair hop presence, clean and fresh, a great summertime beer for the masses instead of the normal swill!

If this is an APA man this is bad brewing by Miller. This has to be the poorest example of this style. Corn and Wheat aroma. Yellow body with white head and some lacing. Flavor is watery, corn and some malts. But just another rating is all this is good for in my opinion.
