What the brewers say

“Boulevard Pale Ale is a smooth, fruity, well-balanced beer. A variety of caramel malts impart a rich flavor and amber color, while liberal use of whole hops adds zest and aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Medium high notes of peach marmalade with light pineapple and bread notes way in the background. Yeasty fruit aromas blend with the hops. Slight malt sweetness on the nose accentuates hops fruit notes of strawberry, cherry, mango, and peach.”

Flavor: “Big hops flavor up front. Hops bitterness and malt sweetness are well-balanced, and stone fruit abounds. Malty hit with just a touch of tart. Bitterness is appropriate and well balanced. Low astringency, finish is quick and inviting. Moderate hops flavor and a big ester punch.”

Overall: “Yum. It’s light on the late hops character that defines more contemporary APAs, but it’s very well-balanced with pleasing notes of strawberry, mango, and other fruits (even a touch of olives). Phenolic finish slightly distracting.”
