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.

A: Poured from a bottle in a glass. Brilliantly clear, gold. Head was gone in 30 seconds. Some lacing.

S: Smells like Saaz hops and pilsner malt. 2 of my favorites. Expecting more adjunct aroma but not finding it.

T: The beer has a lot more bitterness than I was expecting. No hop flavor, only bitterness. The bitterness lingers. No malty sweetness. This beer is quite dry.

M: I prefer this style more carbonated. It's a little thin and it's not giving me any wow factors. Goes down really easy.

O: It's good. I'd like a touch more malt sweetness to balance the hops and a touch more carbonation. Worth trying once but I wouldn't repeat.

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".
