COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Boatilla Amber Ale is brewed using a blend of Pale 2 Row and Cara Munich malts that give it a beautiful, deep reddish hue. It’s well balanced, but has a bolder maltiness than our Kölsch. Boatilla is the perfect beer for those summer evenings spent floating on the water with friends and family.

Pours a golden bronze with a thick frothy light tan head with lots of carbonation evident. Nose is a yeasty bread. Rich and creamy on the palate, the taste is of malts and grains with a nice crisp finish. A very enjoyable beer from a relative newcomer to the Milwaukee brewing scene. Pairs well with pizza or cheese and crackers.

12 oz bottle. It pours a apple cider amber with a foamy white head. It doesn’t have much of a smell, but what it is is standard amber ale scents. The taste is a bit more pleasing. The malt however is too buttery for me It has a little bit of a hop accent but not too much. It is a boring beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-28-2010 22:59:15

Pours nice amber with fluffy white head, aroma is pretty nondescript, notes of some pine, caramel, biscuit, and a slightly metallic note. Taste is similar, slight hop, slight malt, slight bitter, with notes of pine, caramel, and some metal in that order. Not bad, drinkable but not one I’d seek out regularly.

Thanks to Skyview for the bottle! pour is amber with a medium off white head. aroma is dusty amber malt. something that could be stale grassy hops. Light malty flavour, caramel, some grassy hop and a light and dry-ish crackery finish. Inoffensive.

On tap at Old Fashioned in Madison, pours a clear amber with a thin white head, aroma is of malt with a hint of caramel, the flavor is smooth but is farily uneventful, has some notes of caramel with the malt but overall is bland.

Clear orange-amber with a two finger rocky taupe topper fading moderately with splotchy lacing. Aroma is on the milder side with caramel, grains, a hint of toffee and I swear I smell Lake Michigan in there too. Some mild hops appear upon warming. Taste is on the lighter side as well with light caramel, toasted malt and some grassy hops. Bitterness is barely evident on the finish and the body is a tad oily.

Pours a clear copper amber with a clingy-laicng froth of off-white head. Has a toasted lightly sweet caramel nose with a touch of piny hops. Starts with average body and effervescence with some light caramel sweetness and an earthy bittering hop balance before a slightly drier toasted malty finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable, but could use a touch more sweetness.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Picked up 12-oz bottles at Sendik’s in Brookfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear light copper amber colored brew with a thick off-white head that slowly dissipates, some extra carbonation, and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of multi-grain malt, a hint caramel, and some floral hops. Taste is light to medium bodied, extra carbonation, with tastes of caramel malt, grassy hops, light yeast and roasted nuts. Finish is semi-dry, a tad gritty with a mild/sharp bitterness that hides most malt and ale character. An extra light pale ale is the best to describe this amber ale.

Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottled. Poured translucent light-medium orange with a fluffy cap of whitish head.. nice color to it. The aroma picked up semi-sweet caramel and nutty notes with dish soapy accents.. juicier fruity hops showed on the back. The flavor found more caramel and nutty sweetness at the core.. bitterness was light and earthy, with spicy fruit showing on the back.. tangy and a little bitter at the end. Lighter-bodied and decently balanced on the palate.. enough bitterness to balance, but the bitterness didn’t hold enough interesting character.. drinkable stuff.

Deep amber with red hues. Aroma is fresh, crisp, and malty with some mild hopping. Flavor has a fairly robust malt backbone (caramel and toasted malts) with a dry, mildly-hoppy finish. A solid amber ale that is quite refreshing. Great start guys!
