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.

Really nice this year. Very balanced, nice carbonation to style, malty, with the Goldings citrus finish. Very refreshing; would make a good session beer.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 This has a beautiful amber color. Tried this again recently on tap. It’s a nice brew. The aroma has some carmel, nuts and a little hint of apple. the body is a little highly carbonated, but I also find that in the bottle. The taste is slight apple with some caramel, iced tea and a little bit of citrus in the finish. A good brew. I am rating this again with the 2007 batch from a bottle. Nice light body and flavors are the same, but maybe a little more muted. A good session beer.

Pours a dark amber color with a medium tan head. Aroma is warm and malty. Flavor is equally malty with some caramel and a good balance of hops.

This is my favorite Irish Ale although it is made here in Missouri. Very tasty malt with caramel, a little sweetness. a good Irish style red ale. Too bad it is seasonal or i would buy this year round.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2011 Bottle (BB 05/15/11). Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted light bread, cookie), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of gum. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Boring but ok.

Thanks to MOBoy for the trade. Pours a beautiful rich dark amber color with a medium beige head. Aroma is pleasantly toasty and malty. Full sweet malt flavor with a touch of hops and caramel. Finish is sweet. Not bad at all.

Good looking, with frothy head and fine clarity in the body. Neutral aroma. Unexciting caramel malt flavor. Finishes tight and dry. THere is some appeal in its sour snap that comes in late, which actually accentuates some sweetness.

Medium brown color with tan head. Very little aroma. It is more malty than hoppy, but does taste much better than it smells. Could definitley use more hop aroma.
