COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Irish Ale, Boulevard’s 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.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2005 Poured amber with an off white head. The aroma was very pleasant: fruity hops, orange peel, and pineapple. The flavor was really a huge let down on this one. Definately tons of other beers I would rather drink. Had a watery body with only a slight mix of grassy/floral hops for flavor. Very dry finish which is good because you will get this down fast that way.

Pours the color of a garnet stone. Lively bubbles with small head. No lacing. Lively in the mouth as well. Nice balance of malts and hops. Good beer for a style I don’t prefer.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2005
612-850-0680. Disregard those digits. Beautiful dark burgundy hue with a small, thin and wispy head of foam. Aroma screams of dry Irish Ale yeast, hints of herbs, flowers and citrus from the hops and a touch of fruit and caramel from the malt. Taste is mainly hop accented with a blend of citrusy, flowery, herbaceous varieties along with a toasted malt and caramel malt backbone. Dry and bitter.

DocLock (8244) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Thanks to beer handy for this. Pours a mixture of deep copper and ruby with medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, and floral esters. Tastes malty, hoppy, with a solid fruit element. Smooth palate with lively carbonation.

jgentgesdo (679) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 15, 2005
Pours translucent read with a small head and tiny bubbles. Nose is mildy malty, sweet, a bit of sharpness. Very flavorful with a nice sweet almost candy-like beginning, toasted malts and a smoky finish, with what tastes like crystal hops in the middle. Great, lingering slightly smoky aftertaste. Overall very good.

jus10cider82 (67) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - FEB 10, 2005
Pours murky red with smallish head. No visible carbonation or lacing. Smells of light malt and citrus. I like the medium mouthfeel. Not bad, maybe BBC can make some decent beers. (12 oz bottle/shaker)

Pours a deep red color. Small white head. Aroma is malty, with a hint of spice to it. Flavor is sweet and malty, roasted malt with some fruit and nuttyness. Very nice brew. Thanks to Heemer for this one!

Brownish-red color with minimal head. Aroma is warm, malty with toasted caramel and dark friut. Flavor is very malty with toasted caramel, milk cream, dry bakers chocolate underpinning, and a nice balancing bitterness.
