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.

Beautiful crimson hue with delicate cream head. Cherries, bready malt and a nuttiness are in the aroma. The nutty flavor comes out more in the body, along with caramel. Suprisingly dry finish.

St. Pat’s Day 2005, Crescent Moon Ale House (Omaha, NE). On tap. Pleasing. Translucent dark red in the glass with quickly diminishing off-white head; great lacing, INCREDIBLE "racing." I sat there playing with the glass for a full minute, just tilting it back and forth. Not much of an aroma besides fresh/crisp pineish hops. The flavor was dope-ish (i.e., almost amazing): subdued sweetness on the fluffy malt transitioned into a great level of bitter hops that lingered long into the finish. Slightly buttery, smooth, well-balanced. Perfect body: was stout enough to hold up the hops, but still felt crisp and light in the mouth without being watery. Well done, Boulevard. Well done.

Braudog (6118) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Richly colored red beer with big waterfalling head that was sticky on the glass. Nice. Surprisingly sweet-wheaty aroma. Tingly and hoppy, sweet and tarter than I expected ... almost like a heartier American wheat.

bu11zeye (12405) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2005
(Bottle) Pours a dark amber-brown body with an average-sized off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, bread, and nuts. Flavor of toasted bread, caramel, and cream. Soft, creamy mouthfeel.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - MAR 6, 2005
(bottle) Deep copper with almost no head. Malty aroma. Flavor has hints of sweetness with a definite hops background. Seems to be less than the sum of its parts.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pours a dark copper with ruby tints and a lightly-lacing, light tan head. Aroma has a nice crystal malty backbone with a hint of English hops. Starts with a nice toasty malty thick body, a touch of toffee, and a sticky caramel finish. A surely malty brew with enjoyable balance. Thanks to csbosox for this!

JPDIPSO (5153) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Dark copper color with a small lid of light tan bubbles. Aromas of earth, nuts, esters, dark (near burnt) caramel, and touch of rubbery hops. I’ve made this brew as a home-brew years ago. It was a brown ale that fermented out father than I wanted. Ended up thin and weak on the palate with flavors that did not seem to meld together, much like this brew. A light nut brown ale to me.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 28, 2005
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.

darkstar (69) - Eureka, Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2005
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.
