Deep orange with nice head, very appetizing in the glass. A very quaffable amber with enough malt presence and hop bite to distinguish it from many insipid entries in this category.

Aroma is light and sweet, some fruits present and grains. Sweet corn aroma. Gorgeous appearance. Slightly hazy amber with a boisterous light tan head. Noticeable alcohol burn towards the end and quite hopped to finish. Pleasant sweet malts to start though. My lasting impression though is that this guy is too hopped at the end for me in the Amber style.

Pours very dark for an amber, small beige head, noticeable absence of aroma (although I had this in between two great belgian ales, oops). Decent taste, this would be a good beer to compliment a great meal.

Anderson Valley has great beers. I wouldn’t say that Boont Amber is the best but in relation to other beers of its kind its right up there. Boont has a very nice dark amber color and a rich sweet taste that makes my stomach ask for more and more. Its tasty! Not too hoppy,and not very bitter, just a cool refreshing amber ale .

Pours a cloudy dark orange with a small amount of white head that falls quickly. malty aroma with a nice hop tone. Taste is sweet and malty at first then the hops bring on a bit of a bitter taste towards the end, smooth and crisp.

Sampled on tap at Lake Tahoe. Richer carmel and toast maltiness than most ambers. Tasty, crisp hop but not overbearing. One of the best in the west.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2005 Nice brew. Pours a cloudy dark amber with an off-white head. Malty aroma. Taste is very nicely balanced; there’s caramel malt and some citrus with a definite hop presence. Mouthfeel is very full and round leaving a nice bitter aftertaste. Good carbonation with a hearty feel and good alcohol presence. Very satisfying. Recommended.

Thick, creamy head, and a dark coppery color. Questions of style heredity swim around my brain. Is it an American version of German altbier, or English bitter? They already have an example of the latter, but, no matter...
Aroma is soft, citrusy, but mild. Good hops, good bite and texture, adequate malt, light body, very smooth and easy to drink. Some dischord in the finish. Altogether fine, but not memorable.

More reminiscent of an IPA than a typical American amber. Some sweet malt flavors with plenty of hops in the finish.
