COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Irish Ale, Boulevardís 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.

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.

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 isnít much that makes this beer sing though. Itís pretty one level. Not the most drinkable but fairly refreshing.

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. Patrickís 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.

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.

From a bottle... Pours a dark amber with a creamy head. Nice carbonation and lacing. The aroma is a sweet roasted caramel with a piney backbone. Taste is sweet, with slight hops and roasted coffee. Finish is clean. An enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
