COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Irish Ale, Boulevard’s spring seasonal beer, is our Midwestern tribute to the legendary red ales of old Ireland. Our recipe combines six kinds of pale and roasted barley malts to provide a rich, toasty flavor and tawny reddish hue. Whole hops are added to enhance the beer’s complexity and to produce a pleasing balance.

I don’t really like this kind of beer, but if you like Irish Ales then I’d recommend trying it.

Warner Robins, Ga - Lazy Dog Growler - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper appearance, slightly off-white head, thin lacing. Very faint earthy aroma, not unpleasant. Overall a very restrained flavor. Slight maltiness with some caramel notes. Slight bitter hoppines cuts in underneath to keep the interest level going. Stays strong throughout. Overall, decent.

Draft to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent reddish brown (amber) with foamy off-white head. Smells of malt and biscuit with a touch of caramel sweetness. Tastes like it smells, but more robust, and with a touch of hops. Pleasant on the palate. A good example of the style.

beaz1591 (237) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 22, 2014
English Pint. Very mild odor of malts. Dark brown cloudy beer with lots of carbonation but minimal head. The malts and spices blend together nicely but the alcohol taste finish is unappealing.

hotstuff (3921) - Indiana, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Rated on 5-12-2010 (Bottle) This bottled beer pours a small very, very fizzy head with a short retention, transparent orange body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, toasty, yeasty, hoppy, and spicy. The taste is sweet, caramel malt, yeasty, wheat, spicy, and lightly hoppy. The palate is spritzy and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very easy to drink and while the flavor is not bad tasting, it just did not leave me wanting this beer again.

12 oz bottle. Pours a clear red/copper, with a big off-white head that lasts and leaves fair lacing. Nose is pale malts. Taste is of pale malt, with a mildly bitter hop finish. Kind of watery.

Hangover (1028) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Brown-reddish pour with a thin, creamy tan head. Aroma is of bisquit with sweet, malty overtones. Flavor is of toasted malts, caramel with a lingering, malty and slightly bitter finish. Body is nice and creamy.Definitely does taste "Irish".
