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.

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.

Very plain all-around, and a bit sour. Has a kick not seen in most amber but not enough of one to recommend solely because of it.

Ughsmash (7086) - 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.

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.

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.

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.

This one met the glass with a caramel color and a caramel malt to match. The head was dark beige and only short lived as expected. Hops were a matching herbal to counter the caramel. Nothing special, but a potential good session brew.

Skyview (5150) - 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.

crossovert (6928) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
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

Bottle. Pours a light bronze with small off white head that quickly dissipates. Some patchy faint lacing. Aromas of malt and a bit of caramel. Taste is similar; light malt, caramel, a bit of hops. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Drinkable, but nothing really standing out for me.
