On first impressions, like a glorified Molsons Golden. Pours with medium head that quickly disappeared. Standard US pale aroma, taste a little more creamy (within the realms of a light lager) and not as crazily fizzy as e.g. PBR. Very little bitterness in the finish. Overall decent but not Full Sail’s finest by a long way. BlueBoarFan (1) - - MAR 12, 2012 does not count
This rating is a historical assessment of what the Blue Boar Ale was. It is still a fresh, crisp, lightly maltly and hoppy ale but overall its fame suffers from the original brewery (Weinhardts, Portland, OR) no longer making it. It tastes like a real good, large brewery, retail beer should taste. Because it comes from my end of the world (N.W. USA) I have a fondness for it. Nothing goes down better than a ice cold HW Blue Boar Ale on a hot summer day. Who gives a hoot what color the bottle is... keep it cold and drink it empty! Sledutah (7791) - Utah, USA - JAN 9, 2012
12oz bottle from the state store vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Appearance: Pours crystal clear light golden with a medium sized white head that dissipate fairly quickly leaving some spotty lacing, good carbonation
Aroma: Skunky, sweet caramel malts and honey
Taste: Skunky, grainy, corn and bitterness
Why a green bottle? Tastes like a juiced up Heineken, not for me!
Pours a bubbly bright gold color with smallish white head. Sour-hoppy-grainy aroma. Taste - nothing stands out. Corn, hops, hay and grass. Prickly carbonation. Light and refreshing, no off flavors but overall, this is pretty forgettable. bpreo (2903) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2011
Either this "Irish Style Ale" tastes a lot like Heineken, or Heineken is an "Irish Style Ale". Apparently Blue Boar is an American Pale Ale in the end. Hmmm.

12oz bottle. Rating #159. Clear yellow/gold pour with a light white head. All skunk in the nose, it overpowers anything else that might have there. Flavor was the same, more skunk, why would a brewer use green bottles. (1539) DuffMan (10606) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle. "Double hopped"!? With Cascade?!? WTF? I don’t want to waste precious seconds off my life even responding to such ridiculous bullshit. This is a pale lager, and a pretty shitty one at that. Like every other Weinhard piss juice. FAIL. ThaJuggernaut (309) - Washington, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Light skunky beer with a hoppy taste. Not my favorite but I can drink it. It’s cheap and easy to find. johnnyawesome (3) - Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2010 does not count
This has always been my go to beer. As far as a cheap, light beer goes, this will always be in my fridge. Ratman197 (15216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Green bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread, spicy hops, light skunk and a hint of earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, light spicy hops and a hint of earthiness with a smooth finish.
