bottle @ Whiteys / Lawrenceburg IN --- 15FEB2017 --- Aroma of malt and spice. Clear amber brown color, beige head that stays at 1", bands of lace. Taste is malt with light spice, medium fizz, and medium hops in a finish that grows more bitter as it lingers. An interesting brew that finally centers on bittering..

Nothing special. Expect more from my limited exposure to Boulevard. Clear dark amber pour with thin head. Aroma is mild roast malt and sweet molassus. Taste follows nose, just add a little mulling spice.
