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.

Malty sweet with a hop bitterness reminiscent of pine. Some fruity esters. Not the greatest holiday ale but drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I smelled caramel & citrus. Dark amber in color. Loads of complexity and flavor. I taste hints of caramel on the back of my palate while grapefruit tickles my tongue. Lovely mouthfeel. I enjoyed this beer!

12oz Bottle A - Pours hazing brown amber. Tan 1 inch head dissipates into soap suds. Good lacing S - Sweet cookie, brown sugar, & molasses T - Sweet cookie, roasted malt, with a hop bite for balance M - Medium bodied, good carbonation that pickles the tongue. O - Very Good Winter Ale thats not spiced which I like.

In bottle. Dark amber malty nose with a slight sweetness. Hops are hidden under the sweetness with a touch of stone fruit. Mouthfeel is slightly thick with modest carbonation. Nutty malty taste with sweetness hitting at the same time as the hops finish is clean with decent length. Worth the drink but not memorable. ---That dog will hunt!

Poured from 12oz bottle, pours brown with a decent off white head. Aroma is sweet with a little bit of hops mixed in, flavor has spices on the front end with some hops in the finish, abv is well hidden, not bad

Bottle. Orange-caramel malt and orange peel aroma. Dark amber with large head. Sweet caramel malt and moderately bitter orange peel hops flavor. Light body. Okay.

12 oz bottle thanks to ben & marti: Pours light chestnut brown with a thin white head. Aroma deep caramel malts, cirtus and piney hops. Hoppy winter beer with a good malt profile. Sweet on the front but slightly bitter and a little sour at the end.

12 ounce bottle as shown in the photo. Amber color, steady streams of carbonation. The spice flavor only had a cameo here. There was a subtle sweetness and it was much smoother than most warmers that I’ve tried. Highly drinkable, despite the high abv, yet not highly distinctive in taste. Medium bodied. Overall, nice although ho-hum.
