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.

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.

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.

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.

Deep brown color with a thin but foamy white head. Malty aroma. Good hefty mouthfeel, full of roasted malt with a hint of nut. Slight hops to balance. Terrific!

Brown Coloring. Small Head. Aroma: Malt...Complex.. I agree with Pigfoot that it reminds one of a winter ale... Very Good Beer, But Wasn’t Expecting the Wonderful Malt Flavoring to this Beer. Roasts.. A bit of Spice... Very Nice!

Hey, thanks to Mjames for sending me this brew some time ago… It was pretty damn tasty!

Pours a dark cherry wood colored body, and a tan cap of head… nice lacing after every vertical / horizontal / vertical motion of the glass! The aroma is somewhat spicy and malty at the same time. Big notes of wood chips… with an underlying suggestion of cinnamon stick and cracked peppercorn. The flavor brought a lightly citric tartness.. then a sweet hint of molasses and toasted walnut and almond bagel in the finish- there was such a nice nutty presence here! The palate was rich and tempting…. An unexpectedly enjoyable and drinkable ale! – Thanks again Mike!

Color: a clear reddish hue, and the head is short, off-white. Aroma is a surprising delight, rich and ambrosial: caramel, nuts, some dark fruits, cherry, citrus, and an overall roasted feel. Puts me in mind of a barleywine or a winter ale, more than a typical Irish ale. Tasty, warm texture. Hops are lying low, true to style. Malt is big, but not too much so. Taste is sweet and delicious. I loved this oned all the way down!
