Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 11-19-2001

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.

Cloudy deep orange in body with white head that never leaves. Aroma of citrus, honey, light fruit, sweetened cereal. Tastes of citrus but no rind, light fruity notes, mild mint, honey sweetness, and toned down bitterness. Light bodied with light carbonation. Lacking some body but nice and sessionable. I could tank these all day.

Now this is what an APA should be. Perfectly balanced, not too hoppy but a ton of flavor. This beer needs to be your designated BBQ beer, just as you would expect from a brewery in Kansas City. You can enjoy this one year-round, and I do. It's Boulevard's first-ever beer and still the best. I'm a Colorado beer guy mostly but this one finds its way into my fridge fairly often.

I'm not a pale ale guy but this is a smooth drink that can definitely satisfy.
