COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boulevard Amber Ale is an exceptionally well-balanced beer, complex yet thirst-quenching. American pale malt provides a firm foundation. English specialty malts impart a nutty sweetness, perfectly complemented by noble German hops. The deep coppery color holds the light, reflecting a ruddy glow, and the finish is clean, round, and delicious.

A: The beer pours amber in color with a thin off-white head. S: A pretty bland nose on this beer. A bit of toasted malts and toffee, some bread, too. Minimal hop notes, perhaps some floral and grassy notes, but not really any citrus. T: The flavor is similarly bland. Some bread and toffee malt giving a bit of sweetness, but there’s a strong grassy flavor on the back end. It also tastes of carbonic acid, probably because the beer is overcarbonated. M: Medium body with a rather heavy level of carbonation. O: Pretty unremarkable amber ale. Nothing that would bring me back to this one.

adnielsen (10445) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark burnt orange appearance with a cream colored head. Quite sweet caramel malty nose with some nuttiness that’s somewhat dull. Pretty bland caramel malty flavor with light nuttiness. Pretty boring beer.

djd07 (9520) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2011
On tap at Hudsons. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy light beige head that leaves good sticky lacing. The aroma is a sweet malt and roast. Thin mouthfeel with a bready malt and cereal. Easy to drink a very amber from Boulevard.

BVery (9400) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Orange amber pour with a just off-white initial head that fades to a ring. Nutty caramel malt, lightly sweet, with a touch of hop zing late. Pretty good everyday type of beer.

phaleslu (9251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Sample from a 12 oz. bottle dropped by a STL-area bar. Pours a cloudy golden amber color with a soft off-white head. Aroma of banana, bready malts, Belgian yeast, cereal, and sugar. Flavor of bready malts, yeast, cereal, caramel, citrus, and spices. Light-bodied, with soft carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Sort of a Belgian spin on an amber ale, and not typically what you’d expect from an amber ale.
