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.

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 (3347) - 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 (929) - 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...

From a large bottle, pours with a medium head, minor lacing. Beautiful dark Amber ale, nice on the tongue. Definitely above average, nice for Friday afternoon relaxing. Worthy of your time and money.

babymammoth (63) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2016
Sweet caramel and toffee notes on the nose, the sweetness develops into a biscuit/shortbread freshness. Very clean, almost too sweet but balanced out by well used hops.
