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.

Light brown hazy pour with a off white head. Taste is mostly malts with slight hop presence in the finish. There is a pleasant caramel or vanilla undertone. Mouth feel is on the lighter side. Overall this is a nice beer if your looking for a good beer for a BBQ.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: pours a copper color with a 2" head that lingers around a while before falling to a spotty surface foam.

Smell: caramel and a bit of earthiness comes through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, dark fruit sweetness, some earthiness and nuttiness, and a mild bitterness create a well balanced amber ale.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, smoother towards the finish. Aftertaste is short lived.

Overall: easy to quaff beer. A bunch of these can be enjoyed in a session.

A Dark copper. Thin white head. Transparent.

S I liked this. A bready earthiness. Roasted malts. Grainy.

T Malts. Caramel. Toasted wheat and rye. A little hop bite, which was a bit of a surprise. Nice bitter follow through.

M Light. A little chewy.

O Good solid beer. Refreshing on a Summer day, but could play well in Autumn as well. Crisp finish. I like this and will have it again.
