Henry Weinhard’s Blue Boar

CIMG5909

I’m trying to go down the list of beers from this brewery. The Blue Boar is one that I’ve actually had before as it seems to make a presence at every college party that has something other than Bud Light. They refer to it as an Irish Ale, but I can’t for the life of me figure out why. RateBeer calls is an APA, while BA calls it a Cream Ale. It has “Select” Pale and Caramel malts with Cascade, Willamette, and Cluster hops. It also got a bronze at the ’08 GABF for American Style Cream Ale, so we will go with that.

Stats:
Cream Ale. 4.6% ABV. Oregon.

Very pale yellow color with head that fades very quickly, but has left a little bit of lacing on the glass.

Well, this smells a lot like Corona. Slightly skunked with a sweet grainy note.

The mouthfeel barely exists.

Skunky, sweet, mild malt flavor with a hollow mid-palate and slight grain on the back, which isn’t too bad.

If lack of flavor is your thing, but Corona is out of style, then this is for you. 72 points.
