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.

A definite favorite for the holiday season, great balance with spices, orange and caramel...compares well with Anchor Christmas Ale.

Pours clear amber with a thin white, bubbly head. Aromas of grapefruit and caramel, with flavor of grapefruit, some coffee, other undefinable dark red fruit, and roasted malt.

A lot of apples and cinnamon. Definitely a Christmas beer. Not quite as good as the Rogue Chamomile, but a heckuva lot easier to come by.

pretty good brew. I’m not a fan of spices, so that held this one back a bit.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2007 2007 version: Cloudy, dark amber body, with a very thin, off-white head. Hardly any lacing. Citrus, pine, and malt in the nose; rather faint, but clean and inviting. Hop bitterness and some sweet malts in the initial flavor, and the finish is dominated by dry bitter hops with a somewhat creamy base. Great carbonation and weight. This beer is definitely better after it sits in your glass for a few minutes, so please be patient. Happy holidays!

English Pint. Very faint hints of malts. Dark amber color with minimal head and lacing. Taste of malts, hops and a bit of spices. Malty mouthfeel. A nice winter beer.

a good beer especially for the season. the color is a dark red. The flavor is nutty, with some fruit and generous amounts of hops. unfortunately its a bit thinner than i would like.

Pours an overly-carbonated head on a dark amber ale, have to stop mid-pour. Cream head lasts for a long time. Notable hops aroma. Spicy hops taste on a decently thicker and very bubbly consistency. Slightly dry finish with not unpleasant bitter hops aftertaste.

TLNash886 (228) - Idaho, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Pours dark amber into a pint glass with abundant off white head. Aroma of lemongrass, little malty sweetness. Tastes pretty well coincide with the aroma. Upfront malty sweetness, lemon, almost floral. Finishes dry and decently hoppy. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, very drinkable. Not bad.
