This is the one beer from Boulevard that I won't buy. If you hand me one I will drink it though. I am at odds with many of my friends who love this beer though.....guys who wish they could get it year round. The yeast aroma is too strong. I'm not sure why it is more pronounced in this beer when compared to other Irish style red ales though. Overall not bad, but not the best showing from Boulevard.

$1.23 single.

Appearance (4) : pours a huge yellow four fingered head that diminishes slowly and holds retention well. Ginger orange colored body with 80% opacity.

Smell (3.5) : spice, toasted grain, citrus hop bitterness. Yeast and bread dough out of the bottle.

Taste (3.5) : Overall taste is hoppy and bready. It begins with a smooth bite and a body of yeast and malt, with light hop. The end accentuates and compounds the hop profile in a lemon peel finish. It ends slightly like a pale ale. It's not exactly my type of amber but it has a lot going for it.

Mouthfeel (3.25) : Creamy, lightly carbonated, medium bodied, ends sticky.

Overall (3.43) : may not pick this one up again but it is a respectable amber. Glad I got to try it at a cheap price!
