Cloudy, light amber with next to no head that disappeared almost instantaneously.

Muted aroma with some light piney and citrusy hops.

Taste is very balanced with some nice citrus notes and some light bitterness at the rear end (teehee)

Mouthfeel is lacking in carbonation, but is nice and dry leaving you craving more.

Solid beer, but I was expecting much more from this and for the price there are many better choices.

Served In: Snifter

Cinnamon muted orangey brown hue that sits like a solid form of candle wax in the glass. A tall and fluffy beige tinted crown of foam lifts quickly to top it off. Slowly dwindling down to a skim and collar that stays present throughout. Minimal spotty lacing is flung about.

Aroma is dryish and woody with a nice twist of grapefruit and orange peel within each wiff. Munich and caramel malt is lightly laying groundwork in background. A solid smelling Pale.

Taste is made up mostly of dull orange tones dusted with wood notes, floral hops, and a light under current of pale, caramel, and Munich malty sweetness and bread flour. Bitterness is playfully buzzed in crusty woodyness and a splash of grapefruit tinge.

Body is a mealy medium in malt with an airy dryness in hops and yeast floating about. Carbonation level is medium and a bit edgey. Leaves a nice deep woody tang of tone late across the finish.

A very solid Pale, well-crafted with a fairly good balance, but a bit disappointing for an Anniversary brew given what the Smokestack series Boulevard has been crafting. And at $12 a 750, Harvest Dance is what I'd much rather grab; that is, if ya can still find it?


Price: $11.99 Served In: Pint Glass
