BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

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.

A: Poured from 12 oz bottle into pilsner glass. Light golden color and spectacularly clear. Slight head and not much lacing.

S: The aroma is subtle, with biscuity malt nose.

T: On the front of the tongue is the malty sweetness, and although there is no real hop flavor, there is the bitterness in the finish and fairly dry.

M: Light body with decent carbonation.

O: A really tasty beer when I want to back off the hops and get my palate back on an even keel. My wife would enjoy this and is a good beer to initiate your friends into the world of craft beer. Another solid offering from Kansas City's Boulevard Brewery.

On-tap at Woodyard BBQ

A: Golden straw with very long-lasting snow white head supported by high carbonation.

S: Light grass and soothingly sweet hop florals.

M: Crisp, very crisp. And very light bodied with high carbonation level.

T/O: Surprisingly sweetness from bready malts and addition of Munich and Cara 50, general sweetness, no caramel and kept clean. Segues to a spicy peppermint, for lack of a better descript. Mild fruit sweetness-apple and pear. Good showcasing of German hops. Altogether, the crispness and carb level cut through any sweetness making this an extremely drinkable brew.
