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.

Pours a deep amber with a white creamy head. Some lacing. Slight diacetyl aroma. Lite hop bitterness with a crisp finish. Very carbonated. Thanks Mjames for the bottle for us NMers.

Nice amber body and thin soapy off-white head. Toasty malt aroma and mild woody hops. Malty flavor with some mild acidity that rounds it out nicely. Medium body. A decent Irish Ale. Thanks to TannerTavernboys for this.

Disclaimer, I have drank close to 60 bottles of this beer before RB: I'm still love the pour of this beer, nice deep copper hue with long lasting beige head and excellent head, just like I remembered. The aroma hints of toasted caramel malts with toffee tones, biscuit and bready, aromatic and grassy hops, light allspice, and dusty yeast esters. The taste starts malty sweet with a liberal notes of wildflowers and hayfield. Undertones of mild pear, traditional bittering hops, and caramel. The finish display a nutty, grassy, and a sublime grapefruit tone. The mouthfeel is above average for style, smooth and creamy, nice! You would be hard pressed to find a better American made Irish ale styled beer. Very recommended.

A pretty good beer with a very hoppy flavor. I enjoyed the dark red body and its slight bitterness.

bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Nice, slightly malty aroma; beautiful cloudy red color; good flavor, slightly roasted, malty, just a hint of hops at the finish. Nice mild, easy drinking beer.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Scarlet amber in color with a dulled clearness, thin ivory head that fades to leave a bit of a collar, small spots and globs of lace stick. Aroma is toasty and grainy reminscent of Cheerios. Taste is toasted in the front, slightly dry and very mildly hopped in the back. There's a small twinge of bitterness just before the middle and light roasted nuttyness and subdued sweet malts skip in and out. Feel is a close to medium throughout with a nudge in the middle but kinda drops off from there and has a light fuzzy texture. Kinda boring, but adequate, drinkable, sure, but passable.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - FEB 23, 2004
Copper colored with a moderate head and fair lacing. Fresh spicy hop aroma that initially reminded me of a gin and tonic for some reason. Light to medium bodied with a toasty malt flavor, some bitterness and a chocolate note. Dryish finish.

Shag (2834) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Aroma is malty and nutty. Appearance is a reddish brown with a minimal head. Flavor is malty and sour with some grapes, oak, and cherries in the flavor. Somewhat light bodied with a smooth creamy taste. Not a bad Irish. Many thanks to CB and TAR for hooking me up with this and many other good beers!
