Bright red color, almost exagerratedly malty. Nice caramel sweetness. A very nice session ale.

Very much like a scottish ale, yet lacking the peat smoke hints. Very rich malt character; this is a very drinkable. The hopping was very English in character, and ramified throughout the tasting.

Rich, thick and malty. MMMM yeah. Sensationally smooth, yet complex and balanced. This is a style to sample more of.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2004 2003:It's Boulevard, so it's good, as always. Pours a copper/gold color, smells hoppy and yeasty. Fairly decent head, good lacing. Ceamy mouthfeel. Flavor moves from initial hop "snap", to a moment of dryness, to a mellow finish. Very nice. 2004: Seems a little better than last year's. Pours a deep red color, low carbonation, small head, a little lacing. smells malty and yeasty. Flavor is of great caramel malts, mild dryness, sweet malty ending, some lemongrass in there towards the end. Good stuff, yet again.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2003 The first sighting of the Boulevard spring seasonal. Pours copper with a big off-white frothy head. Aroma is yeasty with smooth tones of hops. My mouth first feels the carbonation and the frothiness, followed by a slight bitter hop taste, ending with a strange sweetness that is unlike any other beer I've tried. This is a nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2004 A nicely balanced Irish-style amber ale, with caramel maltiness and spicy, floral hop towards the finish. Recipe for this one seems to vary annually a bit. Certainly one of the most flavorful and all-around best Irish ales one is likely to find.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 Deep clear- amber in color, has a nice white head that doesn't last very long, light malty bready aroma. Sweet caremel malty flavor, mild hop profile it does have a nice clean dry finish, medium body, seems kind of bland, overall not all that bad but average.

Garnet in color; Head was large but fleeting; Pleasent nose of malt. A passable beer. Would be great in the right setting- perhaps the brewery or a patio full of hotties.
