This is just a solid beer, and Boulevards flagship. For me, it is the gateway beer that got me interested in craft beer. Aroma is very light citrus and caramel, taste is lightly hopped and more malts than anything. A very quaffable beer that’s good in any season. keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - FEB 20, 2007
UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 I love this beer. A solid pale ale. Nice head. Beautiful color. Taste has just the right maltiness with an even and strong citrusy bitterness from start to finish. madscotsman (147) - Fairview Heights, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2007
Amber in color with a fruity aroma. Little head with a crisp finish. Decent Pale Ale, but another fine beer from Boulevard kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Pretty good beer, below average pale. Pale amber and hazy in appearance. Some fruity, almost white-grape notes. Crisp, dry hop finish. Zimmo (57) - Siloam Springs, Arkansas, USA - JAN 25, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy amber, with thin white head and some lacing. Cloudiness reminds me of this brewers excellent unfiltered wheats. Great floral/herbal hop taste with no metallic aftertaste as is present in many of this style. Another very fine offering from Boulevard.

Bottle: Sampled at Whiskey Creek Wood Fire Grill - Hayes, Kansas. Nice, toasted maltiness and crispy, lighty hoppy (grapefruit, pineapple, herbal) finish; rounded, modertate palate; very drinkable and fairly tasty. ogglethorp (919) - Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a light amber color with a small off white head. Aroma is pale malt, floral hops, some citrus. Flavor is the same. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, bitter finish. Decent. lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Pours a pale copper with a huge frothy and persistent, very lacy ivory head. Smells of citrusy and herbal hops with some light underpinnings of fruity pale malt.
Lots of herbal hops in the first mouthful, nice bite, Then the hops dominate all the way to the finish. I’m not sure if the hops are so strong or the malt profile is that thin. Some fruity malt profile detectable but way back there. Hops linger in the aftertaste. All things considered, nice stuff. An uncomplicated but tasty pale ale. luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Bottled. 12/09/06. Beer is slightly cloudy, light brown hued.<P>
The aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; Hoppy with light notes of grass, honeysuckle, resin, orange zest; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Trace of oxidation. <P>
The flavor is lightly-to-moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic with a longer-than-average, lightly sweet, dingy-dirty feeling finish.<P>
The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P>
Variety in hop characters is appeling, but feeling in finish is a stopper. Ernest (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2010 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot), lightly yeasty (dough), with light notes of metal and soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather clunky and dirty. A below average rendition.
