This beer is best classified as a "light" barleywine. Definitely had enough characater and complexities to be such. The aroma was deep....alcohol, west coast hops. Golden copper in color with an average head, little lace. Excellent flavor! Sweet caramel malts lingered on the tongue for a while, more alcohol as it warmed. The mouthfeel was very full, again, more like a b-wine than an amber.....great beer!

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2003
Pours a clear, copper color with a small, creamy, lightly-tanned head. Everlasting with thick lacing. The aroma is soapy, yeasty and holds notes of sweet malt, apricot, earth and caramel. The flavor consists of caramel and dates up front. Moderately bitter with a touch of molasses and honey on the backside. Just enough hops for balance. Medium-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Medium-length, lightly bitter, astringent, earthy finish. Just short of world class in my book!

What kind of name is Boont Amber? Doesn't matter, I guess 'cause it's a nice brew - would make a great session ale. Poured a beautiful "boont amber" color, with a moderate, somewhat rocky off white head that diminished gradually. Smelled of toasted grains, caramel, citrus and a bit of apricot. Nice malty flavor balanced with ample hops, with a longish bitter finish. Beautiful complement to a late spring San Diego sunset!

Tan color, small bubbles that don't last. Malty dry caramel taste. Somewhat dry/hoppy finish.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 18, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber, light density of small/medium particles. Aroma is lightly malty (cookie, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Nice amber ale. Smells like Fuggles, but probably isn't. Aroma isn't strong enough, though, and raw yeast comes out as it warms.

Indra (2569) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - APR 27, 2003
Toasty caramel malt, light fruitiness and spicy, leafy hop aroma. Medium-dark amber color, faintly hazy with an impressive, lasting, creamy head and lacing. Some grainy malt, caramel, light fruity sweetness in the flavor, followed by a respectable amount of spicy, fresh hop bitterness and flavors. Nicely balanced and overall quality amber style.

WISEGUY572 (1372) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2003
A good solid American ale but not my favorite. I think I still prefer the slam of an IPA like a Dogfish 90, a Victory Hop Devil, or a Stone Ruination. That said, this is a good beer. Pours a beautiful dark reddish orange with a big tan head. Nose of floral hops, citrus, and malt. Taste of pine and citrus, but in moderation, and sweet malt. I would prefer a stronger malt backbone. Then a long bitter finish. A well made, easy drinking ale that does not scream Cascade hop at you the way some of the bigger American IPAs do.

Slight brown tint with a golden colour. A decent off-white head which lasts and lasts. A slightly sweet smell, but not much more than that. Good overall flavour with the hops standing out more than the malt. A great beer for the style, and although its not one of my favourites, the Anderson Valley brewery is one that you should try every beer of, regardless of style!

Holdwine (1071) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Great amber! Sweet notes with a nice darker amber color. Drinks very well, love the hops and the caramel. 5.8% is pulled off with style. Drink this beer!
