Boundary Ale
« on: July 08, 2013, 04:28:18 PM »

In case anyone cares  :cheers:

Boundary Ale is a 5.3% abv pale ale brewed with seven malts and four types of hops, including classic UK varieties East Kent Golding and Fuggles, and Chinook and Cascade from the US, which combine to bring the beer up to 39 IBUs

Oh well.  Can't say I'm surprised, I guess.

Pretty much their answer to the Keith's single hop cascade... similarly inoffensive and somewhat bland.

Take a look at the table toppers for it....no indication that it's by Moosehead at all, except for the Moose in the graphic.
Trying to look all crafty.

I'm curious to try it still... Mostly so I can complain about it after  :pal:

We go the Cannon's crossing quite regularly so I'll try one next time. I can always wash it down with a Picaroons or a PumpHouse if needed.

I have to give some credit to Keiths for their Cascade & Hallertauer Hop Ales... A good effort and a step in the right direction IMO.  Def much closer to an IPA than their regular stuff.

Looks like something worth trying. Also, I do have to say, the Keith's Cascade is very nice as a light summer ale

They had the Boundary Ale are the Brewers' bash, it actually wasn't too bad... Good for fishing/kayaking trips when cans are needed. 

They had the Hop City and Boundary at the same table.. I didn't see one reference to Moosehead anywhere there

Was hilarious to the the "well endowed" bimbos at the Moosehead table with nobody lining up to sample, but the ugly/hairy/old men behind all the other tables having long lineups to taste their beers.
