OK, I"m a goober because I like it! It is one of the very best cheap beers out there. We keep a 12 pack in the fridge.

Sweet malt aroma. Dark gold with thin, fine bubble head. Nice flavor, but not nearly hoppy enough for a Pale. Nevertheless, makes for an exceedingly good session beer. As a stand alone, a little thin, but for volume, at least keeps your taste buds interested.

Medium gold color, small head. A medium bodied ale. Advertised as a “traditional Irish” ale. Malty and slightly hoppy. Smooth taste, perhaps a bit too carbonated? Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Nearly indistinguishable from the private reserve, except for some barely-there ale qualities. Touch of hops are the only way you could tell the two apart. Actually, I think I would stick with the private reserve. It didn’t have a weird skunky corn like taste I noticed in the ale.

This was a frickin Labatt Blue without the carbonation. It looks like an MGD, it tastes like a La Blegh, and its not a particularly good beer. Its a cheapy though...you get what you pay for.

not a whole lot here. Very bland, thin, watery. Nothing, I really enjoyed, or plan on buying again.

Just too damn thin. This isn’t really all that bad, especially for the price, but it’s not good either. Weinhard’s is the ultimate middle of the raod beer, but the Blue Boar seems somehow more average if that’s possible. I’m not the biggest pale fan in the world anyhow, but this is just too damn thin. Easy to put down, easy on the wallet, but I need a beer to kick my ass a little.
