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 isnít 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 (2832) - 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. Thereís 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. Thereís a quick spicy aftertaste and finish.
Overall, APA, uh....sure, itís a different one alright but nothing bad. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 17, 2002
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.

On tap at Tomís 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. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 29, 2001
What the hell is a blue boar. Ridiculus, fucking ridiculus. This is one of the worst smelling beers i have ever experienced. Doesnít taste much better. wyanetwhip (17) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - APR 5, 2005
Not bad, not what it used to be. Ruined by Miller. Once one of the best "non- micros", now just a hoppier version of MGD. If you drink it, pour it in a glass. Something about the Miller carbonation system just doesnít work for this brew. When poured, the carbonation is knocked out and the taste is much cleaner. Yeah, I know...all you snobs are saying , this dummy pours this crap in a glass... weebs (17) - USA - SEP 3, 2006
Not a pale ale like Sierra Nevadaís, but more like Rolling Rock. I actually prefer this to Rolling Rock. Itís very smooth, very drinkable, but lacking in overall flavor. Also leaves a bit of a dry aftertaste that isnít very pleasant. Still, itís a great thirst-quencher and a reasonably good deal considering itís average cost ($4.99/6) 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.
