Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Boulevard Amber Ale is an exceptionally well-balanced beer, complex yet thirst-quenching. American pale malt provides a firm foundation. English specialty malts impart a nutty sweetness, perfectly complemented by noble German hops. The deep coppery color holds the light, reflecting a ruddy glow, and the finish is clean, round, and delicious.

Bottle kept in fridge. Poured into a Nonic Pint. Best by 10-28-12.

A- Boulevards Amber Ale pours a hazy deep copper color with 3 fingers of yellowish foamy head that recedes at a moderate rate and does not lace on the glass.

S- Grainy and bready with some metallic notes. Not a whole lot going on.

T- Flavors of toasted malts start off then turns to a grainy taste in the middle. Finishes kind of sweet. With notes of caramel and toffee.

M- Comes across as medium bodied, with a decent amount of carbonation.

O- Another easy drinker from Boulevard. This one while not great, is a good year round offering form Boulevard.

A: The beer is relatively clear copper in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high beige head that died down a bit but never faded away.
S: There are aromas of caramel malts in the nose along with some hints of fruity yeast. No hops are noticeable.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of caramel, nutty and toasted malts with some hints of malty sweetness and a slight amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a malt-forward beer that has a nice balance of different types of malts and has just enough hops to prevent it from being sweet.

12-oz bottle into small glass mug

A - huge head of khaki foam atop a transparent body of orange amber; lots of small rising bubbles of carbonation

S - malty with unusual metallic notes; not much on the nose

T - sweet and malty up front, floral hops move in for a hint of bitterness, bittersweet finish

M - slick light/medium body, medium/high carbonation

O - Nothing pretentious about this one. Just a simple amber. Worth a try.

This is one of my go to session beers. As far as looks go its hazy due to the bottle conditioning with a nice amber orange hue. The aroma has a nice sweetness to it with a malty backbone. The taste is very malty with the sweetness from the yeast used in it I believe. Overall its extremely drinkable and very refreshing.

A: Pours a crystal clear dark copper to medium amber in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall creamy beige head that reduces to a medium sized patch of thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Very mild in aroma overall, there are some light notes of toasted malts and some even lighter hints of floral hops.

T: This beer has a solid body of toasted malts with some lighter amounts of caramel and toffee sweetness. There are light hints of floral hops but very little bitterness.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery but there is a certain prickliness from the carbonation.

O: The beer is pretty well balanced and typifies the American Amber/Red Ale style for me. The beer is easy to drink and could be sessionable. It is enjoyable and one I would have again.
