BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
boulevard.com

Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Appearance: Pours with a clear golden color but I am surprised by the lack of a head; minimal lacing

Smell: Graham cracker tones and a slightly grassy element

Taste: Graham cracker malt dominates the front end with a bit of a grassy element building through the middle; a honey tone arrives after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with low carbonation

Overall: Not sure that this bottle was Boulevard's finest and perhaps it was dated (the bartender poured it and discarded the bottle) but a good pils needs more carbonation and hop treatment

They do donations, how sweet.

Pour is a honey blonde with a 3 finger soapy head. Clarity is good, lace is fair.

It smells like a Mexican lager, wherewith the dirty diaper and stale grains. Some spearmint-like hop is also present.

The flavor is not bad, if anything it is refreshing. Tastes like a whole lot of nothing, followed by stale grains and leafy/minty hop.

Again, very refreshing, drinks like water, nice crisp finish. Best part of this beer.

Overall KC PILS is worth the dollar i paid for it. Coming back to it soon? Probably not.

Malty, caramel, not much flavor. Pils are boring and this is a boring example.
