COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Irish Ale, Boulevardís early 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.

An Irish Ale for the Midwest? Great idea! Boulevard has expertly recreated the characteristics of this style. Everything from the red color to the creamy taste seems authentic. The malt flavor is complex and toasty. While many of the common Irish imports seem overly sweet, Boulevard has struck a lovely balance with the hops and malt varieties. To hell with cliches, itís a delicious choice for St. Patrickís day.

Best by 01MAY12 pours a rusty brown with a quilt of light latte foam and excellent clarity. Spotty lace. Nose is of floral malts and a little bit of caramel. Some tea like, earthy hops. Metallic flavor over a decent amount of sweet malts. There is a certain dry, tart character Iím not really digging. Medium bodied with moderately hi carb and a good dry finish. This is okay, nothing more. Serving type: bottle 03-07-2012

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of toasted malts, some bready, biscuit notes going into caramel, toffee, nice yeasty and spicy notes in there. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, and some bread, hints of toast, yeast, into slight grass, touch of fruity notes as well, finishing slightly spicy, sweet.

This is a decent beer though not a fan of the style. Had this at a hamburger joint in Kansas City. Good beer.

Just a solid Irish ale that you can knock back and enjoy time and time again. I found it paired very nice with poultry dishes and fresh veggies. Enjoy!

Pours copper with a moderate head. Smells and tastes of spicy hops with a toasty malt flavor. Finishes dry and bitter.

12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass with a fairly clear, copper color, off white/light tan frothy head foam that turned cakey, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was lightly toasted, caramel, sweetness, and actually some orange and peach notes. The flavor presented medium, lingering and well rounded hop bitterness, malt to match, and a touch of toffee. Medium bodied, decently carbonated, and nicely drinkable
