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

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Poured an amber color with a very small amount of head. Carmal malts dominated the taste of this beer. Im usually a big fan of malty beers, but this one lacked a little body. Easy on the palate and would probably drink again.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Poured a copper color with frothy head and a citrus scent. This brew tasted of apricots and caramel. Overall, a very smooth beer.

StefanSD (2436) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2009 650 ml bottle from Bevmo. Pours a translucent amber-copper color. The head is big, off-white, and sudsy leaving plenty of lacing as it slowly fades. The aroma is a bit understated with notes of spices, caramel and pecans. The taste centers on roasted malts with plenty of biscuit filling out the sides. There is a fair amount of biter hops filling in the back end and giving the ale a bit on a pale ale character. The mouthfeel is uneven with this ale starting out a bit thin and then developing into a fairly full and smooth experience. The finish is long and slightly sweet. Overall: This is a rather enjoyable amber ale. Recommended.

kyzr (1459) - Montana, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Bottle pour, darker amber, with nice off-white head. Nutty, hoppy and caramel nose. Flavor is hoppy, yet controled by the roasted malt and higher sugars. Finish is dry and clean.

walter (359) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Draft, Baja Bean, Staunton VA. Medium amber color with offwhite head. Nose is toasty caramel malt with a nice piney hoppiness underneath, really like a subdued IPA. Flavor is creamy malt with a nice hops-bitter finish that lingers on the tongue. Again, drinks like a malty IPA, really delightful on draft.

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

Draught at Hop Leaf, Chicago
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.
