3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bottle at the Cheese Factory in KC. They have a number of Boulevard beers on menu as well. Pours a beautiful deep straw colour, head dissipates quickly, not much lacing, persistent carbonation - this is the sort of beer you drink in a tall flute glass, slightly yeasty fruity nose- distinctive pears; very dry, a tad bitter, does not have the salty CO2 of many US pale lagers; quick finish, good sparking carbonation. Good example of the type. This bottle brewed in Japan. I was in Japan when it came out, the can pictured here is a garish example. It was well received by the expat community. The scores here reflect a snooty beer-bongers snootiness. This is an excellent example of the style. The fact that I only drink a bottle of this every few years is irrelevant.

330 cl bottle in Thailand. Pours pale straw colour. Little head retention; aroma of sweet rice. Little more in the taste. Rather pallid. Strange aftertaste of metal. This version is brewed by San Miguel in Thaliand.

Een zachte toegankelijke pils. Doet denken aan een zachtere versie van Warsteiner. Erg goed in balans voor een pils.

From a bottle poured into a shaker. A solid fairly full bodied pale lager. Dry clean malty finish. Effervescent. Just a touch of bitterness. Slightly above average for the style.

Yellow/golden clear color, quite nice white head. Drinkable lager, which hasn´t any good taste to mention. Not bad, let´s say average lager.
