COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Like many American burgs, our town was once home to a number of small, regional breweries. As they disappeared, so too went the full-flavored but easy drinking classic American lager. Today, we salute these bygone breweries and revive their legacy with Boulevard Pilsner: 100% malt, real hop character, unpasteurized. It’s the taste of tradition.

Bottle from Skyingbrian at my StL trip. Pours standar gold pils, light, fluffy head. Nose is apples and grain, a kiss of hops. On taste, it is hugely filled with acetaldehyde, distractingly so. Nice enough body, though lacking in grain and hop character. Meh.

swanmann (778) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 8, 2010
From the bottle, this poured clear, bright golden with quickly dissipating off white head. The aroma is slightly corny and earthy with a little hoppyness coming through. Mildly bitter sweet flavor bread crust with some peppery notes coming through. I would say light to medium body with some lively carbonation, finishes medium dry. It’s tasty. Nothing overpowering and a bit heavier than some of the more common pilsners.

Bought a six pack at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Pours a gold color with a nice white head. Aroma of grass and grains. Flavor of hops, not a big pilsner guy but this was a refreshing beer. Easy drinking.

Pours a rich clear golden color with an impressive white pils head. Almost no aroma, perhaps a little wet bread. Clean crisp American pilsner taste. Not real flavorful, but well balanced. Sweet pale malt and maple syrup are present along with a slight hop bitterness that is still more assertive than most American macros. Very pleasant and refreshing, not corny. Remember, ratings should always be against others of the same style, not based on what your favorites are. With that, I must rate this fairly high.

smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2010
A good easy drinker. Not much of a beer for the beer snobs, but drank it with a frozen pizza and say give me another. A really weak light pilsner, but good nonetheless. This one isn’t competing with Urquell!!

Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Pours clear yellow, with a thin bubbly white head that disappears. Aroma is sweet grass. Murky slightly bitter taste with grain and a watery texture.

2.5
SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 26, 2009
In the bottle from Beertopia poured into a vintage Storz fluted pilsner glass. Thanks to Hurrisnow. This is Great-Grandpa’s beer! Golden in color, a bit dark perhaps. A medium to small white frothy head disappates rapidly. Mild grainy aroma. Outstanding white Brussels lace. At first sip, this comes across exactly like a Falstaff, but without the blast of corn. Something on the dry side with little sweetness, this has a substantial grainy finish. More carbonated than any other Boulevard product. If one wanted to make a retro beer, this is EXACTLY how to do it. If a regional brewer wants to capture the BMC drinker, this would be the flavor profile to use. This is a lawnmower beer! Joe Sixpack in KC should get behind his city and drink the hell out of this beer.

This was a pretty decent brew. I was surprised to see that I had not tried this one. Nice flavor with a crisp finish.

3.3
unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - DEC 15, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours bright golden color, thin white head. Basic and expected appearance. Aroma of straw and some grass featured. Nice grain and a bit peppery. Decent fizz. Flavor of pale sweet grain. Finishes with a bit of a medicinal hop earthiness.

2.9
bvc (1244) - Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2009
12oz bottle from suzygreenberg. Light clear yellow with little head. Grassy boring nose...body is kind of flat and meh...watery and not much going on. Not horrible but nothing impressive. Supermarket beer.
