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.

This was like a light Scottish ale for me. I’ve had this numerous times and it doesn’t overly impress. It may just be that the style lacks something. Malty sweet aroma and a brown, tea-colored presence with a medium fizzy head. Medium weight palate with average carbonation. Light malty taste with some sweet and maybe a little hops presence on the finish. The beer is not bad, just average.

I’m not sure what there is to enjoy about this beer, it had no taste and finished super dry, so maybe thats it, it looks good.. nice dark ruby but not a real tasty beer.

Thanks Uncle Dave. Nice balanced all around beer. Dry finish. A little light in the mellow roasted flavor for an Irish ale but still pretty good stuff. Serving: Bottle

kdm1984 (633) - Missouri, USA - APR 2, 2013
Aroma of nutty malts and...tomato sauce. Well, that is different for a beer. Good billowy head; lesser lacing. Tastes like nutty malts, maybe a hint of cocoa, and...a little bit of tomato sauce again in the finish. My bottle was fresh and cold, so I can’t blame such an unexpected aroma and flavor on dating or temp. An interesting little beer. I will say that the tomato sauce flavors and aromas DO lessen once this sits for a few minutes after the pour...but it is definitely there to start. How odd. Becomes more toasty upon sitting.

On tap at 1839 Taphouse in Columbia. Pours a reddish color with white head. Caramel, malty, dusty flavors. Not bad for an irish.
