BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

- Crisp amber color with a pretty good sized, fluffy, pillowy, light, white head. Average retention with a thin ring of lace left.

S - Malt heavy. Grainy and caramel aroma are strongest on the nose. A fair amount of toasted bread also on the nose.

T - Like the nose, this is a pretty malty beer. Caramel, grain, and toasted bread all present. Nutty flavors also quite strong with faint fruity flavors (apples and subtle cherry). Some hoppy flavors come out with a grassy, earthy, and spicy hop flavor. This helps balance the malty sweetness.

A - Pours a light amber more cooper and range like color with some slight haze. There is a thin white head that pops up but recedes far too quickly.

S - Light malty notes with some bread and biscuit notes. There is some fresh baked sourdough bread and some slight hopy notes in the aroma with some mild citrus. The aroma is a bit mild but still delicious.

T & M - Starts off with some malty undertones. Some slight caramel notes and some nice bread. Very earthy with a slight bitter finish. The malt profile seems quite simple. Bread notes, earthy grain and some slight sweetness. The slight hop notes help balance this simple and uninspiring beer. Quite crisp and clean with very little after taste that lingers.

O - Overall this beer is underwhelming. It is pretty basic. Still a well crafted beer but quite basic. Even for the style it doesn't really inspire.
