COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Balance is what makes our Boont Amber Ale so unique: rich, crystal malts give this beer a deep copper hue and contribute a slight caramel sweetness while the herbal, spicy bitterness from carefully selected whole-cone hops impart a crisp, clean finish. Hints of sun toasted grain, toffee, and fruity esters compliment the mellow, noble hop aroma.

MALTS:
Pale Two-Row, Crystal (40L & 80L)

HOPS:
Columbus, Bravo, Northern Brewer, Mt. Hood

thirstyrabbit (1784) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle. Not sure how old it is because instead of a clear BB date theres just an indecipherable row of numbers. Amber body, small head. Aroma has intense caramel with some toffee and medium level hoppiness. Also some Old Ale-type of oxidised notes. Sweet malty body with caramel syrup and prunes. Finish has some cola notes. Feels quite oxidised at this point but generally seems to be a good beer.

PowY (375) - AUSTRIA - MAY 22, 2016
355 ml bottle. Pours dark copper brown with an off-white head. Intense aroma of flowers and fruits (litchi and hints of citric fruits) and a little yeasty. Medium to full body with lively carbonation. The taste starts with roasted malts (caramel) but not too sweet with some fruity acids and alcoholic. Very well balanced with a smooth bitterness in the ending.

BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
12 oz. can from Co-Op Liquor Store, served in a nonic pint. Pours a hazy orangey-amber with fine suspended particulate, low and slow carbonation, and a thin, light tan head that leaves lace spots. Sweet, bready, toasted malts and hops that impart the aroma of Juicy Fruit gum, along with herbal and vinous hints, greet the nose; on the tongue, the maltiness parts somewhat for grapey, red winey flavors to take center stage. Theres an unfortunate sourness and an odd alcohol tang to the sip as well, which lingers for longer than desired. Slightly thick and a little silky. The wine-like elements pull this beer towards the fruity side and out-of-balance with the malt for an amber ale. Even with this, and with the presence of sour grapes, its still an enjoyable brew.

cfrancis (3256) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Pours clear amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, almost cough syrup. Taste is sickly sweet, it almost felt like I was having a pepsi. Light roast, really not my thing.

Dacrza (898) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 21, 2016
DATE: April 21, 2016... OCCASION: a tiresome day ends in an old friend... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... APPEARANCE:thick, frothy, off-white head captures the vision first.. the effervescent, copper body is also impressive to look at... the lacing resembles camo, with zigzagging angles of entanglement... AROMA: caramel is up front and center, with subtle nut and soft hops... some bread and toasted malts make for an alluring aroma... PALATE: creamy, smooth, lightly hopped and pleasantly lingering... impressively sessionable... TASTE: tough to detect a dominant flavor here... the caramel is appreciable, with the sweet malts lightening the taste...some fruitiness--apple, pear--are present... OVERALL: I havent seen Anderson Valley offered locally for years, and then, lo and behold, I found this six at Hope... just as I remembered it: smooth, sweet, and sessionable... a beer that suits many occasions and rewards with just enough flavor... all that is right with the American amber genre...
