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.

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!

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2004
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.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2004
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!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2004
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!

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUN 22, 2004
Deep mahogan color with light head. Floral hops with some sweet cherry and citrus notes. Mouthfeel is quite rich with fine bubbles. Toffee, and chocolate are predominate but an evergreen hop quality shows on the mid and finish. Refreshing, yet lingering finish.

jde123 (765) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2004
A decent selection. Quite hoppy, mild malts and other not so distinct flavors make this one quite complex. Quiet finish.

Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 16, 2004
One of the best beers there is! Another beer I wish was brewed/available longer, but it is always a special treat for the spring. Nice color, pleasant odor, and it is one of the tastiest ales you’ll have.

Courtesy of MJames, couldn’t get this in my home town. Came via Oklahoma. Big head out of the bottle. Eggshell, lacing. Citrusy, hoppy and smooth. Definite warming effect while consuming. Very Nice beer.
