Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a slightly murky orange color with a large white head. The aroma is mild with some hops and citrus. The taste is a mild flavored pale ale with a slight floral hops flavor.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Burnt orange color with no carbonation and a hazy body topped off with a white, thick head surrounded by a thick lacing around the glass.

Smell: Malty with light hops and mild floral undertones. some bready aromas mixed in with lemon come through after a bit.

Taste: Musky malts at first and quickly followed by grassy flavors, citrus zest and some mild spices with a mildly bitter aftertaste.

Feel: Smooth with a light body pretty balanced.

Overall, this is a good beer to drink very smooth and refreshing and relaxing.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best by" date 3-23-16.

APPEARANCE: pours a cloudy, amber color with one-finger white head, excellent retention, significant lacing, a complete head persisted throughout, medium carbonation.

SMELL: bread, mild flowers and citrus, the nose is subtle.

OVERALL: this is a very drinkable beer, it's a more balanced pale ale that would go well with almost any kind of food, this is one of the gateway beers that got me started with craft beer and I still enjoy it to this day, there will always be a place in my fridge for Boulevard Pale Ale, I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys beer.

Poured 2 fingers of creamy white head. Aroma is lacking on this one, not bad just not much there. Flavor is a good average Pale Ale. This would be a nice beer to take to a cook-out and have a burger with. Also a good beer to get people in this style from BMC ( Bud, Miller, Coors) beers. Take care and have a great day my friends.

Fruity, citrusy, floral hops, mild crisp bitter finish. Slight caramel malt profile to support it all and a hint of pine to offset the fruity sweetness.

Would drink again: Yes
Would purchase again: Yes
