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 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.

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.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2003
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.

reddish-brown color with a slight, but pleasant head. aroma is malt with a sweet slightly metallic quality. flavor is the star in this one. much more full-flavor than i expected..very malty with hints of brown sugar and a rich chocolatey finish.

rich roasty beer aroma, rich roasty malt flavor that is well balanced with hops. I'd say it has a pretty thick & silky mouthfeel & finish, medium to low carbonation, drank it pretty cold out of the bottle. Finish is greeted with some bite from the hops, a decent beer but is one of my least favorite Boulevard brews, if you like richer beers I'd highly recommend Bobs 47 or Bully Porter over this, just don't let these 200 calorie beers make ya fat.

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