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.

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

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.

My kind of Irish Ale. Nice dark red pour with an off white head. Great malt complexity with a nice hop profile of a little stickiness that tapers off.

I have drank this beer a lot over my years in Kansas. Rating this particular 12oz bottle that I poured into a Lost Abbey cool long stem glass. The beer poured with an amazing, voluminous head. The head is slightly khaki in color and leaves a thick lacing as it settles in. Color of the beer is dark ruby with brown tints. Medium clarity in the beer. In the aroma I am first hit with a fruit ester akin to spoiled fruits. After that is earthy dry dark malts. Flavor is stronger on the earthy malts and a touch of fruity hops (more than I want but that is the state of beers nowadays). Finishes and fruity. I think this a fruitier batch than usual but still a good, non-boring take on the style.

12 oz bottle poured into my Guinness 2010 World Cup glass. Dark reddish-brown and hazy with a big off-white head that slowly settles. The aroma and flavor is toasted malts, sweet caramel, toffee and light roast. Mild bitter hops balance things out. Medium body with a lightly sweet finish.

Poured a cloudy amber color with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, cereal, raisins, with a hint of citrus. Taste is raisin, chocolate, caramel, and citrus with a tangy sweet aftertaste.
