Boulevard Brewing Company Westside Rye Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Boulevard Brewing Company Westside Rye Ale - Tasting Room. I picked this one up at the brewery on a trip to Kansas City.
Commercial description: “30% malted rye = tangy, piquant, edgy. Does it go well with pastrami? You tell us. Pale Malt, Malted Rye, Amber Malt, Melanoidin Malt, Midnight Wheat (Rye is 30% of total grist).
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a deep copper color with a large cream colored head and lots of spotty lacing.
Aroma: Caramel, toasted and bready malts, rye spice and very slight floral and citrus hop notes.
Taste: Toasted, sweet caramel and bready malts, rye spice and just a slight hop bitterness for balance.
Overall: Toasty and a touch sweet, Boulevard Brewing Company Westside Rye Ale is very enjoyable. This 5.2% ABV offering is yet another well-made beer from Boulevard!
