Boulevard Pale Ale

Boulevard Pale Ale is deep amber with a slight haze (bottle conditioning), substantial tan head, generous lacing and a goodly amount of visible carbonation.  The bouquet Image courtesy of beermelodies.comis hoppy with a hint of honey in the malt, and maybe some orange.  It’s medium-bodied, smooth as silk and not too sweet, yet there is more honey notes deep down.  There is a malty backbone that becomes more noticeable as the beer warms, and it is a good base for the other flavorful aspects imparted by the hops.  A tanginess and pleasant bitterness is present in the finish.  The aftertaste has some caramel and just enough dryness for a pale ale.  Not too hoppy for the malt people, but hoppy enough to be a lighter go-to beer for the hophead.  A well done 5.4% ABV pale ale!
