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.

Bottled... Poured a medium to dark red color with a medium head. Aroma of sweet malt and caramel. Flavor was sweet malt and a bit of spiciness with a nice hoppy finish. Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation.

Sweet dough and caramell nose, ruddy amber color, low sticky head. Toaste malt, cookie, some raisin in the flavor. Broad tingly gritty bitter. Medium body, OK balance. OK but not that special overall.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - MAR 29, 2005
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 (6342) - Yorktown, Virginia, 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 (12717) - 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!
