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.

Not bad for a commercial pale lager. Probably the good water used makes the difference. Golden pour, malty taste, bitter finish. Classic.

Lager com aroma suave,boa formação de espuma,no sabor presença de malte e levemente de lúpulo,pequeno amargor no final,nota-se a presença de cereais não maltados(milho,arroz)porem não prejudica o conjunto.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dorada muy clara ligeramente turbia. Espuma normal. Aroma escaso, a cereal. Bastante carbónica y refrescante con amargor final destacado. Nada especial. Bebible. Sin mas.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft. Pale, straw pour, eh. Lots of corn, brewing cereal in this one. No real hops or malts of note - it’s barely beer-like. Really lost any appeal it may have had as it approached room temperature - wasn’t keen to finish. If cold, it could work as a quick mouth rinser.

Bottle. This gear always gives the impression that it’s somehow better than other pale lagers when it really isn’t. Maybe a bit. Pours Clear Gold with a White head and a mess of bubbles. Tastes pretty inoffensive. Light malt, very light hops and extremely light bitterness.

0,33l bottle @Food Court, Schipol. Sour, light, pilsner, no hops or malts. Not unpleasant, just dull.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: Dark gold, small head, quickly goes away
Aroma: Malt, sweet
Taste: Same, with a faint bitterness
Palate: Semi-refreshing, not much to say
Standard Pilsner, but definitely better than Asahi

Quenches the thirst, nice on a summer day, but you gotta have it cold. Rather sweet aftertaste.
