A Murky brown/amber. Thick white head. Really thick, doesn't fade quickly. Fat lacing remains down the glass.

S Rye, obviously, but lots of it. Sweet malt. Hops. Something tart, lime maybe.

T Thick wet grains. Rye, wheat. Slight sweetness and zestiness, apples, orange peel, cinnamon.

M Nice rich foamy mouthfull. Finishes with a little bit of a bitter aftertaste. Still nice and refreshing.

O I liked this very much. Boulevard, to me, has always made good beers and I flat out love some of their offerings, but this kicks it up a bit. This is the most quality brew I've had from them. The flavors blend so well. Sweet, dry, bitter and the rye is present but does not overtake everything. The best rye beer I've ever had.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint.

A: Dark brassy hue. Pours a 2 finger, foamy, white head. Settles slowly. Pervasive effervescence. Foam blanket. Thick beer ring lacing.

S: Caramel malt, pungent rye, tangy molasses.

T: Roasted caramel malt, fresh tea leaf, pungent rye bread.

M: Hearty and earthy. Pungent finish lingers on the palate.

D: Sip or session.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Really nice head, and thick lacing. Nose is sweet and pungent. Earthy roasted caramel, accentuated with some rye bread and tea leaf. Overall, this is a good quaff.

The Westside Rye is a unbelievable rye session ale. I would drink this all-night. The beer poured a hazy amber with thin white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent is carries rye in the form of a wet corn meal. The taste is evenly balanced between malt and hop. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a decent session ale...but there is a heinny/stella after taste...but overall it is tasty!

Picked up as part of a mixed 12 sample-pack, BBD 01/06/14

Pours a super-effervescent copper/brown with 1 finger of khaki colored head. Good lacing & above average head retention

S: Faint pepper, brown bread & leafy hop notes

T: Some pepper notes, a bit of brown bread sweetness, & not much else up front. Dryness & some pepperiness as this warms, slight toastyness as well. Finishes dry, peppery with a little bit of leafy hops

MF: Kind of thin, slight carbonation, picks up as this warms

A run of the mill rye beer, nothing to see here...
