12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper color with an aroma of citrus, rye bread, grain field at harvest time. Flavor is citrus, rye, grain, clean. Has that rye "bite" to it. I enjoy this, but is slightly tame for a rye.

This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light cola brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was rye. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The ok flavor contained notes of rye and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving spot lacing. Earthy hop and caramel aromas. Sharply carbonated and spicy with rye and caramel upfront turning to an earthy pumpernickel finish.

SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Pours auburn with a small beige head. Smells strongly of rye. Taste is bitter with a bit of rye spiciness. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and present mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Westside Rye Ale finishes with a kiss of bitterness.

12oz into a can pint glass from big elm. Pours straight brown. Head is full and engulfing, stands about an inch. Aroma is skunky, dirty malts, congused malts, and a sort of rye backbone. Taste is malty like a brown ale, resembles a brown ale, and is non exciting like a brown ale. Chewy granola makes its way in, the rye pretty much does nothing for this. Not too impressed here, and I thought these tasting room additions would be the penicle of the mix pack. Wrong. meh.

Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle poured a dark amber with a thick foamy, dark cream head. The aroma is of rye, with a little sharp tangy notes. The taste is pretty food, medium body with a dry finish. The rye is really noticeable in the finish, overall the beer has a watery mouthfeel. Not a bad rye ale.

rougeau13 (2879) - Richmond, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2013
Dark copper with a bit off-white head. Aroma of rye and light sweet malt. The taste is semi-sweet and just slightly bitter with a solid rye flavor and spice. Body is medium but on the thicker side with somewhat fizzy carbonation. Not amazing, but enjoyable for sure.

phaleslu (9925) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2013
12 oz. bottle via in-person STL trade. Pours a mostly clear amber, hazed slightly by some tiny suspended sediment in the glass, with a small off-white head that settles into a film and small ring. Aroma of rye, caramel, tea, toast, grass, a bit of pepper, and sweat. Flavor of rye, toast, caramel, very dry grains, leaves, and wood chips. Light-bodied, with a dry, spicy mouthfeel and moderate to medium carbonation. A little disappointing based on normal Boulevard output.

Color is medium-dark amber. Aroma is a bit of rye and malt. Taste is a decent bit of hop and rye bitterness and malt. Theres not a lot of rye character here, but at the same time, the rye is also not overpowering as in some rye beers. Its a bit underwhelming, but glad I tried it.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a rich, reddish brown with an offwhite, thick head. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, touches of bread and rye notes. Quite spicy. Flavor is caramely, lots of rye bread, earthy and some sugar. I feel like this would be better if dryer. Medium bodied, coating mouthfeel. Finishes earthy and spicy. Interesting, but drying this out would make it so much better.
