Notes/Commercial Description:
Irish Ale, Boulevard’s early spring seasonal beer, is our Midwestern tribute to the legendary red ales of old Ireland. Our recipe combines six kinds of pale and roasted barley malts to provide a rich, toasty flavor and tawny reddish hue.

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: a thick fluffy off white head recedes at a glacial pace with some fine lacing. Color is a somewhat cloudy reddish amber with plenty of yeast in suspension. Very little streaming carbonation.
Aroma: bready malts dominate the aroma, with some caramel sweetness, a bit of fruit, and some pungent hops.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, fluffy, and sticky with a somewhat wet finish.
Flavor: toasted bread crust, raisins, caramel, a bit of grassiness, and a strong, lingering hop bitterness in the middle and finish.
Overall: this is an above average, but not outstanding, offering.
