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.

A dark slightly hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with quite a lot of fruit and hops combined with light notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of fruit, caramel, and light notes of alcohol, leading to a very dry bitter end.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear orangey brown with a small, beige coloured head. Aroma of caramel and roasted malt. Medium-bodied with sweetish, roasted malts and a discreet note of smoke. Sweetness and a dry hoppiness blends together perfectly to create a very harmonious brew. A lot closer to a Scottish Ale than to Kilkenny. Lovely. 250606
