UPDATED: JUN 17, 2004 Sad to see so many reviews by people who wish this beer was more hoppy. THIS IS AN AMBER ALE. If you want hops, drink one of the hyper-over hopped IPAs cranked out by the West Coast micros in lock-step as if that were the only way to make beer. What I LOVE about this amber is that it is NOT over-hopped. The balance is perfect for the style. Nice rocky tan head. Citrusy malt aromas. Perfect session beer palate -- smooth and eminently quaffable. Flavor is filled with layers of crystal malt topped with just the right amount of citrusy Cascade hops. Perhaps my favorite "everyday" beer. Drinkable any season of the year.

Small tan head short lived. Hazy amber color. Hints of fruit and melons in the nose but the metallic aroma seems to dominate. Med/light body, sorta thin. Lightly astringent malt flavors, real dry, fruity. Finish is dry. One of Anderson Valleys lesser attempts IMHO.

In the bomber bottle. Standard amber copper color with a beige head. Good head upon pour that lasts a long time. Malty caramel flavor. I would like a touch more hops, but overall a solid ale.

Tap@Edinborough Castle, San Fransisco. I’m a big fan of anderson Valley. and this is a good amber. Nutty, with some the usual hit of NW hops, something i could imagine drinking a lot of in one session.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2005 Beautiful rich amber, robust head. Malty, citrusy, flowery aroma. Flavor is rich and creamy, with some citrus, hazelnuts and maple syrup. Creamy, substantial finish. Very nice. Re-rate: Still a decent go-to beer, but it seems kind of flat overall anymore.

on tap: caramel red color with a small tan head that was nice and dense. aroma malt, slight cascade citrus. mouth was more crystal malt tones with the background blowing the hops up. not bad i like em a little more hoppy. drink and be merry.

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 .
