BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Boulevard Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
boulevard.com

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.

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.
