UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Bottle from Wal-Mart poured into shaker - Pours golden brown with a 2-3 finger, soapy looking head; Lemon and malt with a couple of assorted citrus and some hops to the nose; Mostly malt on the initial taste; It feels pretty solid and not watery at all; Only slightly bitter backtaste, but I almost feel bad writing that since it’s barely there; Backtatse turns sweet after a little bit; Another great one from Boulevard! Thank GOD I only live an hour away from their brewery! SunSkates (47) - Arkansas, USA - APR 23, 2006
This is a good mild pale ale. Lemony citrus and pear aroma. Bit of metallic smell too.
Solid maltiness and balanced bitterness. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2006
This beer is an excellent ale. Great straw pale color and a nice nose with a truly balanced palate and finish. It is a mainstay! jimmyh221 (157) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2006
I tried this beer at a beer tasting. It had a nice amber color. This beer had a nice citrus, hoppy flavor to it. Very good! TheBeerGod (6216) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2006
Another bottle of Boulevard from Mike at Bon Vivant. Thanks Mike! Hazy amber with a small ring of bubble around the edges of the glass. Nose is pleasantly hopped and sort of spicy. Light floral notes and a touch of honey an caramel amongst the malt. Taste is sort of standard APA, but this seems a bit on the sweeter and spicier side. Light caramel notes, creamy malts, faint honey, flowery hops and a touch of spice. Body is creamy and smooth with a mild carbonation feel. Finishes with orange peel, spicy hops, light floral notes, sweet malts, and light caramel. The fruits seem to come through moreso at the end (orange, light apricot, and a hint of melon). Not a bad APA at all.

Bottle from eboats Thanks! Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2006
Pours rich and gold with a nice, frothy head. Aroma has a tinge of orange, but mostly it’s a malty smell. Flavor is surpisingly floral, with hints of honey, citrus, and sweet candy. Hops are very detectable, but they never overpower. This is a dang good beer; perfect for a hot day.
(On tap) Ever so slightly hazy amber with a small, off-white head. A touch of caramel in the nose and a whiff of aroma hops. Medium body with some caramel and a discreet, hoppy finish. Certainly drinkable but not a great APA. 210306 kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2006
12 oz bottle, via KUEric. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin film of a white head. Fairly active visible carbonation. Light floral hop aroma over a light crystal malt base. Rather generic Pale Ale flavor, moderate hop bitterness, light but crisp malt foundation. Light bodied with an excessively fizzy and prickly mouthfeel. Just an average Pale Ale, which seems to be my general feeling towards this brewery overall. Everything I’ve had seems to be without any major flaws yet they never excite. verge (32) - USA - MAR 6, 2006
I like a little more hops in my pale ale. Though, it has a nice complex flavor of citrus, sweet and has a nice bitter finish. A pretty good pale ale. eggman (45) - Orlando, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2006
12 oz. bottle, Best By: 3/28/06. My wife brought it back from MO. while visiting family...Pours a hazy amber gold with a small, rocky, off-white head that quickly vanished. Spare lacing...Smell some light orange hops, light straw malts, and light doughy yeast. Light is the key word here, barely registers any aroma at all...Medium bodied, oily texture, and extremely soft carbonation. A smooth bitter finish...Tastes lightly sweet maple syrup coupled with muted citrus hops that finishes with a bit of freshly squeezed orange juice...Nice PG beer. Nothing memorable, nothing unique, but a solid brew nonetheless. A good choice to introduce to someone who normally would only drink Macro’s as it has a decent bitter hop kick but is still entirely accessible. A perfect springtime ale.
