COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nutcracker Ale is Boulevard’s special offering for the holiday season. This hearty, warming brew is a classic winter ale, deep amber in color, with hints of molasses balanced by the "spiciness" of freshly harvested "wet" Chinook hops.

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2014
On draft. It’s got a fruity-sweet aroma that was pretty unexpected, along with some hop. Thin head with a dark brownish-red color. It’s got a bit of the alcohol flavor you’d expect from a winter warmer, as well as some piney hop flavors that linger nicely. Overall a very nice, slightly more hop-forward winter warmer.

stevoj (1958) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Pours dark amber with beige creamy head, decent lacing. Aroma is mostly roast malt with a touch of winter spice, taste is more of the malt, some sharp hops and a little spice to provide some bite. Nice winter ale.
