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 clear copper with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some grass, hops. Taste follows suit with huge malts and a dry grassy bitterness on the tongue. Finish is a bit too hoppy for the style, and mouthfeel is a little too dense. Outside of the style restrictions, this is a solid ale.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2015
Draught. Pours a slightly hazy reddish dark amber color with a moderate pillowy tan head on there. Nose has some grass and light grains, with hints of toasty caramel coming through. Taste is slightly sweet up front, but has a nice substantivealt backbone with caramel and toast to it.

asedzie (678) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle. Nose has herbal-spicy hop aroma, some maris-like UK malt notes - these always taste like musty caramel to me. Flavor is malt forward - great textured and relatively complex graininess, light notes of toasted bread, some mild berry-like sweetness, finishes with a modicum of bitterness and mildly floral hops. Pretty good - similiar to an ESB with a little less earthiness.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 27, 2015
Translucent copper hue. Minimal sized head with little retention. Relatively stunted malt, caramel, and roast aroma. Significantly better taste. Smooth and creamy texture complimented with flavours of malt, caramel, roast, mild scotch, and a slightly hoppy finish.

I have mixed feelings on this beer. It is excellent in a few ways: body is thick and rich, flavors are fruit and malt, nose is minimal but enticing. There isn’t much that makes this beer sing though. It’s pretty one level. Not the most drinkable but fairly refreshing.

HuskerTan (766) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. A- Caramel, subtle spice, malty. A- Dark amber color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Caramel, spices, malty, alcohol burn. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, sharp finish. O- Decided to pop this open for St. Patrick’s day since it was the only "Irish" beer I had to go with dinner. This was a mistake. Strong alcohol burn and not much flavor other than some caramel and spice. Just plain awful.

Jow (2705) - New York, USA - MAR 11, 2015
Tap at The Jeffrey. You know you have a stats addiction when there is far better beers to fill my flight with but I need more Irish Ale ticks so go with this instead. Pours reddish. Nose is caramel and malt. Tastes malty, of caramel, lightearthy bitters, red fruit, and toast. Slick palate.

Reddish yes very lean amber bock like...a good beer but average and sub for this brewery. Appeals to masses I guess no bad funk going on so above average then I digress.
