Worse than the Private Reserve - alot more vegetal and skunky aromas and flavors. The bitter flavors just don't work in this beer - its not clean crisp bitter tasting, but like I said, skunky bitter. BillKismet (4137) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2002
More akin to an American standard, Blue Boar is pale gold and exudes a slightly sweet aroma. This beer definitely reminds us that Henry's is a macro brewer--as it is bland tasting and lacking character, though smooth. Ernest (7815) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, light bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, lemon), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, metallic. Plenty of DMS and an unclean flavor, letting you know this has been micturated upon by an evil giant. fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Comes in a clear-green bottle -- that should’ve been a red flag for me. Pours to a golden-yellow with hardly any smell. A tad bit more flavor than say, Miller High Life -- not great. Lightly skunky aftertaste; not good at all. I would’ve rather bought the High Life and saved a buck. ghawener (1614) - Santa Tecla, EL SALVADOR - FEB 26, 2009

Thanks to ghawner. Drank it at a beer session last nite. Truly forgettable beer. Very watery and tasteless. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2006 Very clear and pale yellow ... headless. Corny nose. Thin and watery texture. Malts were reminiscent of wet bread with honey and a little DMS on top. Ripe apple notes were nice, albeit subdued. No head, but rather carbonated mouthfeel ... a little chewy, too. Finish was dry and relatively lifeless. A few seconds later, in the aftertaste, some bitterness (with a hint of toast) surfaced. Not quite enough to balance things out, though. Yawn. PuckLSHS (101) - USA - APR 18, 2005
This one isn’t bad for a cheap pale ale. It is just a hoppier version of the rest of the Miller line. Miller just does not make a good beer. I would not buy this unless I was forced to, but I will drink it at a part for free. Bcoble003 (292) - Jblm, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Wasnt impressed with this ale only could handle at small doses maybe one a day. strong sourish taste to me not very pleasant aroma Noobling87 (17) - Oregon, USA - MAR 31, 2008
When first starting with beer, this became my favorite. Now, I cannot stomache it. The term ’skunky’ I’ve seen surely fits the smell. It makes you want to turn your head. Not much flavor here, but the extra carbonation hides that a bit. It’s a little hoppy, with the taste of corn. Not one I’d ever buy again.
