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.

One of the best beers there is! Another beer I wish was brewed/available longer, but it is always a special treat for the spring. Nice color, pleasant odor, and it is one of the tastiest ales you’ll have.

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An Irish Ale for the Midwest? Great idea! Boulevard has expertly recreated the characteristics of this style. Everything from the red color to the creamy taste seems authentic. The malt flavor is complex and toasty. While many of the common Irish imports seem overly sweet, Boulevard has struck a lovely balance with the hops and malt varieties. To hell with cliches, it’s a delicious choice for St. Patrick’s day.

Nice Ale! Red and hearty and good for most everything that ails you. A good take on a traditional Irish Red. This Red tops Leinie’s and Killigan’s... by a long shot.

Courtesy of MJames, couldn’t get this in my home town. Came via Oklahoma. Big head out of the bottle. Eggshell, lacing. Citrusy, hoppy and smooth. Definite warming effect while consuming. Very Nice beer.

pours dark copper, almost mahogany, with a large, fluffy off-white head. Smells malty, sweet biscuits and butter, with hints of bitter hops. Tastes sweet, but balanced with some bitterness from hops. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Boulevard Irish Ale finishes with a nice biscuit sweetness.

Blvd Brewing creates a very good spring ale with a nose of Saaz hops and Pale Malt. The head is not lasting, but in the bottle a quick flick of the wrist produces a solid 1+ inch head. The color is right for the style and it is medium to light bodied beer.

This is a decent beer though not a fan of the style. Had this at a hamburger joint in Kansas City. Good beer.

Exceptional bottle-conditioned ale. Most so-called Irish Ales are usually middle of the road red ales, but this is very nice. The color is a nice red-amber, with a firm head and excellent lacing. Aroma is caramel, with some herbal hops and a tinge of smokiness. The flavor is perfectly balanced: caramel malt and Englishy hops, plus a slight smokiness. Creamy mouthfeel. Very very drinkable and characterful.
