Draft at the Handlebar. Dark-ish golden with small creamy head. Grainy, malty aroma. Taste is true to form, right on target. Bready, malty, mild sweetness. Small crisp bite at the end.

I CAN only CANtinue to sing the praises of Boulevard following their distro expansion into PA! I love that so many of their beers are now readily available to me, especially those in the furtherance of The CANQuest (tm).

From the CAN: "Crisp*Dry*Comfort"; "Köln-style Golden Ale".

I Crack!ed open the vent & beCAN a slow, gentle C-Line Glug into the awaiting glass. It foamed magnificently to form wo-plus fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, eggshell-white head with good retention, slowly falling away to wisps. Color was Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality, causing The Gelt Gang of Midas, Croesus & Mammon to come running into my kitchen for a taste. They have not been around much lately since a) I killed my TV for the foreseeable future & b) I have not been drinking many lighter-colored beers or at least, ones with clarity. Nose was very bready, like proofing dough getting ready for the oven!

I had my oven on today to heat some pizza slices. Mmm. It has been kind of nice having the day off at the start of the week. Of course, I lose a day's pay, but I ran some errands & prepared for Saturday's movie premiere.

This malty breadiness begs the question of their referring to it as "crisp & dry". Hmm. Mouthfeel was medium. The first thing that I noticed was an initial honey-like breadiness as far as its taste was CANcerned. Hmm. Finish, however, was quite dry & I CANnot tell you how we got there so quickly. One seCANd, semi-sweet, the next, dry. 8=O It should go without saying, but this, CANbined with its relatively-low ABV, makes it a great CANdidate for the beach-bound cooler next Summer. Yum! YMMV.

12oz can, got overcharged for this: it better be good

Looks like a beaut, smells kinda rusty - dry leaves and lager hops. Taste is pretty damn good.. Sweet malt with muted hops and a very clean, dry finish. Easy to drink, but flavorful.

I will buy again.

I'm trying this beer at my good friend and old neighbor's house in the 'Wego for his son's high school graduation party. It poured a clear golden with no head and no lace. The scent had faint grain. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with grain malt base and very slight bitter finish. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.
