Boulder Beer‘s 30th Anniversary Flashback Ale was another solid addition to one of the best Beer of the Month Club packages we’ve received yet.  This dark ale poured a golden brown color with plenty of thick, lacy head.  To the tongue, Flashback Ale is a healthy mix of malt and hops with the bitter after taste reminiscent of an IPA.  Both the aroma and the flavor had notes of coffee, chocolate and caramel with a hint of citrus throughout.  For an ale with the bite of a traditional pale (not to mention the high ABV count), it is surprisingly drinkable.  Three came in this month’s twelve pack of assorted beers from BeerMonthClub.com, and they did not last.  Join a pair of these with a freshly grilled ribeye, you’ll be in summer BBQ heaven.  StyleCrave rating: B+
