3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased from Metcalf Discount Liquor in Olathe, KS. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle with a "best by" date of 5/1/13 into an English pint glass. Pours dark amber/orange with a 3/4" off-white frothy head; some lacing. Head quickly diminishes, but never leaves completely due to soft but constant carbonation, similar to a champagne. Once in the glass, it exhibits a moderate hoppy aroma of flowers and citrus. Very slight earthy yeasty component. Beer remains slightly cloudy with very tiny particles. Taste is a mix between sweet and bitter, but both very light. However, it finishes sweeter with an average duration and a bit of a metallic feel. It has a light to medium body with a slight oily texture.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to snifter. sweet honey and toffee malt nose and not much else. Pours a dark red with a small off white head. Slightly buttery as it warms. Taste is sweet toffee and caramel up front with little to no bitterness. Slightly sweet finish and missing any slight roasted character that I like in these that lends a drying finish. Really not here with this one. Overall, so so, some roast as it warms, but still finishes too sweet.

A pretty decent red/amber color on this one, with fairly white head. Caramel, bread, and cereal on the nose, follow onto the palate. Finishes with some grass and pine notes to give complexity.

Boulevard Irish Ale is an impressive, flavorful offering. The spices are solid and build the character of the beer. It goes great with food such as beef and smoked meats. It's just as enjoyable on its own. Pour it into a frosted glass!

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: a thick fluffy off white head recedes at a glacial pace with some fine lacing. Color is a somewhat cloudy reddish amber with plenty of yeast in suspension. Very little streaming carbonation.
Aroma: bready malts dominate the aroma, with some caramel sweetness, a bit of fruit, and some pungent hops.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, fluffy, and sticky with a somewhat wet finish.
Flavor: toasted bread crust, raisins, caramel, a bit of grassiness, and a strong, lingering hop bitterness in the middle and finish.
Overall: this is an above average, but not outstanding, offering.

I don’t really like this kind of beer, but if you like Irish Ales then I’d recommend trying it.

Draft to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent reddish brown (amber) with foamy off-white head. Smells of malt and biscuit with a touch of caramel sweetness. Tastes like it smells, but more robust, and with a touch of hops. Pleasant on the palate. A good example of the style.
