Notes: We brewed this delicious, refreshing Mexican-style lager to salute our boys in blue and the city we love. Flaked maize and equal parts pilsner and Vienna malts are balanced by a subtle but distinctive hop character. Whatever the score, this beer's a winner. Viva Los Reales!

Clear gold color with a decent foamy head that disappears quickly, no real lacing.
The aroma is light grain, bread with a hint of hops.
The taste is also light, grainy, bit of peppery spiciness, and a dry finish with pleasant hops bitterness.
Light bodied, a bit thin but smooth and very drinkable, especially for a hot summer day, worked very well with fajitas.
Altogether a decent Mexican style lager.

this is kind of bad, well below boulevards usual quality. i get the reason for wanting to make a royals beer, but they already have that with their kc pils, so this seemed to me unnecessary from the start. a truly lackluster mexican lager, with a little bit of character from the yeast, but it looks and feels like a coors like, watered down and flat from the tap, golden and adjuncty and thin, must be some corn in here. a cleanness from the yeast is lost to a bit of residual sugar, and any malt body at all is absent. this really is missing some character in its make up, and tastes as weak as it feels, a little stinky, a little metallic, and really without a heart and soul, i would think an unappealing representation of the baseball team it purports to be made for. lacking carbonation and flavor, and even with some cheap beer sort of flaw tastes in here, its hard to imagine boulevard, who is awesome across the board, could have missed the mark this bad in a beer they want everyone and their brother to drink this summer. a real head scratcher from a brewery i have a lot of love for...

12oz bottle. Poured out a clear, golden yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of caramel, floral notes and fresh cut grass. Sweet caramel with a nice bitter bite.

I have to say, this is orders of magnitude better than any American Pale Lager I've ever had. Poured from 12-ounce bottle into a pokal. Pale golden color, with a two-finger white head that lasts for a few moments before settling, leaving a bit of evanescent lacing. Aromas and flavors of bready malt, with a floral, grassy note and a touch of corn sweetness. There is some pleasant bitterness on the back end. The finish is crisp and dry. There really isn't anything here not to like. Another delicious and very well-executed offering from Boulevard.

Pours clear with a yellow tint. Head formation is a finger in height, white in color, and has a moderate retention. Aroma is pale, crystal, and bread malts with spicy yeast and dank hops in the back. Flavor profile has a little spicy yeast to it, with pale and bread malts otherwise. Mouth feel is very crisp and refreshing. It has a thin thickness. Overall, it's a Mexican style lager. Not much to it, but it does offer a craft crisp and refreshing lager.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz bottle.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Crystal clear deep straw yellow body under a white head that recedes to a light wisp. Lacing is minimal and light.

Aroma: Light grains, corn, subtle honey, dry hop spiciness.

Taste: Light grains with crackery malts, white pepper, and finally a hop finish that is too sharp taking away any malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, sharp and astringent.

Overall: Tastes nothing like a Mexican-style lager to me, too hoppy and sharp.
