Boulevard Brewing Company Irish Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Boulevard Brewing Company Irish Ale. I picked this bottle up at the brewery.
From the Boulevard Brewing Company website: “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.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a reddish amber color with a large off-white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma: Sweet and malty, bready, caramel, dark fruits, roasted barley, spice and citrus.
Taste: Roasted malts, sweet caramel, bready, dark fruits and a slight citrus and hop bitterness.
Overall: Smooth and creamy, Boulevard Brewing Company Irish Ale is delicious. This 5.8% ABV offering is a must try for fans of the style.
