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.

bottle @ Whitey’s / Lawrenceburg IN --- Aroma of malt. Clear brown cololr, off-white head that drops to a cover, strips of lace. Taste is lightly toasted malt that grows into a medium carbonated swallow, followed by light oak and mild hops. An enjoyable brew.

Block (2086) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Amber pour, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is malty, as is the flavor. Mostly caramel, not too roasted. It’s pretty straightforward. Just a light malty beer.

A plenty fine malty lightly sweet biscuity bready red ale with no detectable hop presence. Very solid.

Tap at Pork & Pickle at MCI. Light brown with minimal head. Malty, light mineral water, bread and a slight grassiness. Taste is mild and bready. Medium body with a fizzy feel.

seems like perhaps an oldish bottle, though I don’t see a date. Still has odd hoppy notes for the style, though - I expect bread and toffee and get lightly bitter and herbal hops. Meh.

12oz bottle, courtesy of gregwilsonstl, pours with a clear amber to ruby red body that supports a full tan head of foam. The aroma offers up malts, earthy malts, a hit of caramel malts, floral hops, raisins and brown sugar dusted dates. The taste starts smooth with a pleasing blend of soft sweet malts, faint caramel malts, chocolate malts and roasted malts. Toward midway it picks up sweet fruity ester notes that are lined with dates and raisins. This stays soft and supple right into the finish where a subtle earthy mineral sensation joins in to close out the experience. Nice beer. I dig it.

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.

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 (784) - 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.
