Overview Craft breweries have been slow to move into the world of lagers, which requires more equipment to produce finicky beers that are less forgiving than full-bodied ales. Boulevard’s Pilsner is one of their most recent releases, dating to 2009.

Flavors and aromas The basic idea here—a malty, Continental-style lager, with distinct but modest hop character—is sound. And there’s good balance in the slightly sweet palate between malt and bitterness, along with nice lift from the carbonation. But tasters disliked the aftertaste of this beer, whose lingering bitterness had a harsh flavor they didn’t care for.
