Nutcracker Ale is Boulevardís 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.

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.

Mint, bubblegum, and banana nose after a cloudy dark orange pour. Taste starts off sweet and stays sweet with almost no finish. Medium bodied with quite a bit of carbonation.

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

Iím a big fan of Boulevard Wheat so it was with eager expectations that I sampled this seasonal offering. The aroma was earthy but stale. The visual presentation was a nice mid-amber with excellent clarity. The flavor was mildy hoppy with small undercurrents of sweet malt breaking out. A hint of barely present chocolate was afterthought on the palate. All and all this ale was just above middle-of-the-road. While warming and decent in taste it lacked the festivity and whimsy that Iíve come to expect from "Christmas" beers.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber in color with a somewhat carbonated head. Lots of spiciness with hints of caramel and molasses. Sweet turns to bitter at the end.

Excellent beer. Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a decent off-white head. Citrus and bread in the aroma. Nice and malty flavor with a bit of dark fruit. Decently balanced, and the wet hops come through on the finish. Flavor doesnít linger too much. Medium body with a bit of carbonation on the tongue. Very good winter seasonal.

12 oz. bottle to lager glass. Pours dark amber with thin off white head. I get floral hops and a touch of sweet, molasses maybe. Sweet with a hopped finish. A decent winter offering.

Pours an amber color with very little head. Aroma is a mixture of banana/clove and hops. Initial flavor of sweet malts balanced off with a warm spicy hop finish.
