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

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Bottled, consumed on 12/02/07. Pours a cloudy dark copper with lots of bubbles and a short lived head. Nose has alcohol notes mixed with sweet honey. Creamy in the mouth. Alcohol taste stronger than the ABV would suggest. Watery, somewhat weak smooth malt flavor until finish which, in addition to mild hop bite (moderately bitter oranges) and resin stickiness, has unusual warm, salty character. Yeasty flavors present as well. Not a particularly pleasing beer, but a novelty, anyway.

Served out of bottle around 48F. Poured with a nice red amber color. Wonderfully toasted grains with moderate hop flavor. Very solid

Red-amber color. Some caramel and malt aroma. Medium body, with a good caramel and malt flavor, and a good hopping. Solid.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - NOV 19, 2007
This is a wonderful, tasy but smooth ale. It is red amber with a small, dense, lasting off-white head. Aroma, sweet pine and malt, but not yeasty. The taste is smooth, with great hop-malt balance, with some sweet caramel and piney bitterness. It has a good body that holds up well and has lasting flavour while being exceedingly smooth and easy to drink.

elelwarren (140) - SF Bay area, California, USA - NOV 18, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 Low head on this lightly fruity scented amber. Creamy going down, with butterscotch, and light vanilla being the overall flavors, with wonderfully balanced medium hops finish. Unlike any other California Amber I have tasted, in that the hops do not overwhelm or try to shock. Great session beer.

LinusStick (3299) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2007
A delicious and beautiful amber. Pour was near perfect. A nice medium amber with a full pillowy tan head. Aroma was so so. A little hoppy with caramel malt.Taste was good...not great. Caramel malt in the front and a weird dirty hops in the aftertaste. A little thin in the mouth but nice carbonation. Would be great in the summer.

robertjm (866) - Albany, California, USA - NOV 8, 2007
Poured little head. Amber color. Amber flavor, but not full-flavored. Rather thinnish in fact. Nice Amber scent. Good lawnmower beer, but thats it.

glennmastrange (2742) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Tap. Moderate malt notes of roasted and caramel, light herbs for the hops, and light dough for the yeast. Head is creamy white with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light red. Flavor starts lightly acidic and finishes lighty sweet, acidic and bitter and a bit sour. Palate is light to medium, between dry and watery and has a lively carbonation. It also has a nice dry finish. A good example of its style and better than most others.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - OCT 31, 2007
sugary, hop spicy aroma. dark brown color, that looks heavy in weight in the glass. head is fluffy, light, and sweet. mouthfeel begins heavy and sweet with hints of rye then lightens in body and fades in sweetness as the aromatic hops come in.

RicksSportsBar (9) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 30, 2007 does not count
Nice color and aroma, however I was a little disappointed when it came to flavor. Not that it was bad, just seems like its lacking something. Juat a little empty tasting. All in all not too bad though
