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.

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber in color. It poured with a finger high off white head that never completely faded away.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of pale malts in the nose along with some hints of citrusy hops.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of bready and caramel malts with hints of citrus. There is a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate to high amount of carbonation.
O: The beer is quite easy to drink and can be considered sessionable.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle: clear, deep golden to amber with a quickly dissipating white-head.
I was quite surprised and pleased by the aroma: very fresh, sweet and fruity - oddly faintly similar to something belgian with a hint of banana.
The refreshing aroma follows through on palate: very flavorful with a fruity, semi-sweet entry, almost a hint of marmalade. There is some faint hop bitters on the back of the tongue, but this is a fairly balanced, malt forward interpretation of an American pale ale.
The mouthfeel is rather slick with a short-lived sweetness on the palate. The carbonation is about average for the style, adding a spritz character to the mouthfeel.
I enjoyed this one, though there was an off-putting banana-like flavor that detracted from the experience. Worth trying but you can easily find better options.

Boulevard Ale: At an airport waiting to depart I opted for the beer lunch. Boulevard was on tap. The body is straw yellow, translucent and very lightly carbonated. The head is pure white, very fine and did not last long. The aroma is subtle, and more fruity than malty. Very smooth drinking, this beer goes down easily. No robust flavor here, just a subtle malt taste and no sense of bitter or hop. I enjoyed this brew, and its easy going nature.

Poured into a glass stein. Light copper color with a tight two fingers of head. Looks really nice.
Honey smelling, slight hop aroma. Really had to search for this too.
A bit of malt, a little more bitter at the end. Just a simple one, two profile.
Light body and light carbonation.
An average beer. Nice and easy to drink, but not interesting or different.
