Notes/Commercial Description:
Boulevard Pale Ale is a smooth, fruity, well-balanced beer with year-round appeal. A variety of caramel malts impart a rich flavor and amber color, while liberal use of whole hops adds zest and aroma. Pale Ale is the first beer we brewed, and continues to be a perennial favorite.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A deep amber color is poured into the glass, with a light beige colored head forming on top. The head is about a quarter inch thick that dissolves away gradually. A grassy fragrance hits the nose at first that is followed by light citrus scent. It finishes with bread fragrance and followed by a touch of cracked grain. The taste comes forward with the malt, bringing bread and biscuit flavors that seemingly dominate each taste. The hops do make a feint appearance at the backend, with grass and citrus flavors. The texture starts a bit watery then grows to become more medium bodied. It then starts to fade to as reaches the back of the palate. The growing carbonation crashes on the back of the palate like a wave. This is an easy to drink ale, if I were drinking a mild ale. This says pale ale. Though it has a strong color and look, with a descent aroma, but the taste is lackluster and the feel is below average, makes this beer a little disappointing.
