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

Bottle. Orange amber body, small off-white head, mild caramel nose. Moderately sweet caramel malts, mild hops, some bitterness. A wee bit watery and somewhat bland.

Attractive amber body, with an off-white head. If the head had lasted longer, I would have probably given this one a "5" for appearance. Some lacing, and that always pleases me. The aroma is a nice balance of sweet malts and clean, crips hops. The initial flavor mirrors the aroma, but a mildly-bitter creaminess emerges in the end. Lively, yet kind of fizzy carbonation, with an overall medium-weight smoothness. I rather enjoy this beer, and Im sure Ill purchase it again in the near future.

Pours amber with thin off white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Body is medium/light. Flavor is full of caramel with a good bitterness at the finish.

emacgee (4652) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Pours a reddish amber with an offwhite head. The aroma is sweet, earthy, musty, dank. The flavor is earthy, sour, hoppy, caramel, balance for sure, but a nasty sour diacetyl taste. Not a fan of amber ales, i just dont like them.

shalloWMeans (169) - Independence, Kentucky, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Mmm. Pours with a pretty tan, large and rocky head. The color is attractively amber with slight carbonation. Aroma is full of straightforward caramel and roasted malt, with a perfect hop-malt balance. Just what I like in a beer! The taste is just right; smooth, and medium bodied, and there is also an extra element to the taste (rye, pepper, caraway?) that sets this apart from other ambers. That and the beautiful balance make Boont Amber definitely worth trying and a beer that is easily drinkable yet complex and bittersweet at the same time. Great toffee finish.

Nice color, malty with moderate hops. lightly sweet, on the thin side. Not bad, but didnt do a lot for me.

haggis03a3 (197) - Orinda, California, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Amber color of course. Thin head. Nice malt and some good herbal/pine hops. Its a little sweet and a little bitter. Quite good and the best Amber Ive ever had.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - SEP 1, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2007 Caramel brown pour with a touch of red. A quickly dissipating fluffy head. This was not a very complex beer, but was a bit sweet and surprisingly good. Ill have it again.

Pours a dark copper color with a thin white head. No lacing. Medium bodied, with hints of semi sweet fruits, molasses, some hops, and spices. Finishes with the taste of yeast and spice.
