pretty good brew. Im 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 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.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Pours light brown to amber gold with a large, tan head. Lacing coats the glass well. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel malt and some piney/resin hop. Flavor is of toasted grains and slightly nutty. There is a nice hop balance in the back of the mouth at the swallow. Rich and clean in the mouth.

For some reason this used to taste better to me. The aroma isnt as pleasant to me as it once was, but it still looks and tastes great. Another of Boulevards ales that just arent available long enough.

12 oz. bottle 2009 winter ale. Orange brown pour. Aroma is of light hops with a hint of some molasses malt. Flavor is somewhat sweet with notes of molasses and spicy hops. Palate is creamy. The finish is quick. A perfect holiday party brew.

Floral hoppy aroma. Dark amber with medium tan head - a bit of sediment. Immediate taste is citrus - sweet orange peel....then caramel, and a slightly dry hop finish...maybe a little too dry.
