Day #342 – Boulevard Nutcracker Ale

December 9, 2011

Quick one today. I still have a few work things to do this evening and then a PARTY! Gotta love that right?

Boulevard Nutcracker Ale

This is Boulevard’s special winter seasonal only available during the Holiday season. It is an English Strong Ale at 5.9%.

This beer pours a murky dark reddish brown color with orange highlights. Tall foamy off-white head forms on top.

The aroma is a mix of nice hops, citrus and spicy in nature with a solid malty backbone. A slight sweetness appears on the nose as well.

This same sweetness holds through to the finish, with a definite flavor of hops and sweet grains. Maybe a touch of spice, but it’s a nice touch. Not bad!
