Notes/Commercial Description:
Like many American burgs, our town was once home to a number of small, regional breweries. As they disappeared, so too went the full-flavored but easy drinking classic American lager. Today, we salute these bygone breweries and revive their legacy with Boulevard KC Pils: 100% malt, real hop character, unpasteurized. It’s the taste of tradition.

Pours to a thin white head with minimal lacing and intense golden yellow color. Aroma is grainy malt and hops. Flavor is a crisp, dry, balanced American lager without the blandness and corniness of the major brands. The hop flavor and bitterness offsets the residual sweetness of the malt. Flavor improves as it warms up and de-gasses a bit, which is rare for a pale lager. Light mouthfeel and generous CO2 to give it a refreshing feel. Overall, a solid beer in the tradition of pre-prohibition lagers known as "Classic American Pilsner (CAP)" . We can't get Full Sail Session Lager this far east and this product sort-of fills that "CAP gap".

Very dark gold in color, starts out warm and biscuity but later on the hops kick in. It starts to taste more like a classic pilsner. I seek out Sam Adams Noble Pils but cannot find it. KC Pils is more than an adequate substitute, it is a great Pilsner in it's own right.
