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.

Tap. Pours to an amber body with a white head. The aroma is nasty with lots of diacetyl and butterscotch. Similar flavor and totally flawed. The palate is average.

A nice amber ale this was a good introduction to a new brewery. It might be that this is the best they have to offer. If not then I’ll be checking out a few more of their beers once I go back through Wisconsin. For the affordable price point it is a winner.

Aroma / Appearance - The almond brown body has a warm glow. Mocha foamy head sits peacefully above the surface. Almond butter, cocoa powder, and then a light sweetness trade off appearances. Gentle soft hops are present as well.

Flavor / Palate - Gentle hops tickle the throat. A light mixture of almonds, cocoa, and soft malts wake up the senses. The sensation fades quickly but leaves enough of a mark to please the palate. If this came from a brewery with a track record for excellence it would be a bit of a letdown. Coming from an unknown brewer however it was a good introduction and hopefully not the last.

Frank (2976) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2014
This beer pours a cloudy orange w/ a scant white head. It has a very mild nose that is mostly nutty malt character. It has mild carbonation and is unfortunately a bit watery as well. Its short finish is just a touch of earthy bitterness. There’s nothing really outright wrong w/ this beer--no strong off-flavors or anything--but it is remarkably bland.

The Dan Journal #452. Tasted 2/26/11.12oz bottle. Filtered with a golden amber hue. Medium ring of bone white head. Aromasof butterscotch, honey and maple syrup. Medium bodied with a nice toasty malt character. All malts with a balanced maltiness with a nutty flavor. Decent enough!

cbfobes (2335) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 23, 2011
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.

StefanSD (2183) - Lakeside, California, USA - SEP 3, 2011
12 oz bottle from the pig. Translucent copper pour with a small white head that soon fades to a film. The aroma is mild and indistinct with sweet grains. The flavor is more sweet grains, spicy hops and a bit of vegetable essence. The palate is medium-light with soft carbonation. Finishes short and dry. Overall: meh.

Trev (1956) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2011
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.

TheHOFF43 (1758) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - APR 14, 2013
Sample at beerfest. Nice amber ale, lacks any type of hops punch. Good color, solid caramel malts.

arkurzynski (1560) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 19, 2010
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!

Bottle pours amber/copper with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, nuts, pine, and light earth. Flavor shows the same with a somewhat oxidized character to it. Overall body is moderate, dry, and lightly bitter.
