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. Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
1 from a 6-pack purchased on 08/21/1996 from a Liqour Depot store in Calgary, AB. Tasting scribble notes are as follows: "This has a light bitter taste that isn’t harsh. Gold colour, tastes like cereal and pine cones. Smells like a typical ale." I purchased a 6-pack of this after a Calgary Stampeders CFL football game in which our team won 23-21!

Interesting name. Poured a moderately carbonated medium gold and delivered a smallish foamy white head which departed laceless. Aroma was nicely hopped and floral, as was the taste. bpreo (2943) - 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. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with yellow tints around the edges of the glass. The head was about a film of a white cap. There was barely any lacing.
The smell had a light spice somewhat like black pepper but not off putting, just different. There’s a light caramel malt gently coming in as it warmed.
The taste was mainly malty sweet with the spice to come back secondly.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. There’s a quick spicy aftertaste and finish.
Overall, APA, uh....sure, it’s a different one alright but nothing bad.

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. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 16, 2008
On tap at Tom’s in St Johns, PDX--Poured a crisp light copper-straw body with a slim wispy white head. Decent carbonation; best served cold. Mildly creamy with a modest biting hops presence. Thin and built for heavy sessioning. Thanks, Full Sail Brewing Co. CasperQuaffer (142) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Good toasty aroma. Color a slight reddish gold. Taste is decent citrus hops, lots of toast and ground grain taste. Mouth feel is unremarkable, but decent aftertaste. Better than mass produced beers, but a little less than a craft ale.
