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

12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy, golden-amber with a medium-sized, white head. Sweet, fruity, malt aromas with a little bit of pine. Flavors of caramel, peach, and apple. A solid amber ale.

A nice surprise. Amber with a thin head with lite fruit / hops aroma. Very well balance of hops & malts; full-bodied. Very smooth front to finish. Nice session amber

pours a somewhat cloudy amber with a one finger fluffy off white head. aroma is of light grain, malt, and a touch of hops, yeast, and alcohol. has a light to medium body with small lacing and carbonation. flavor is malt touch of yeast, hops, grain and alcohol. has a small dry hop aftertaste. it is a slightly above average amber. has a small carbonation bite and i think it is a descent session ale i guess. some caramel shines through in the aroma and flavor as it warms. i went from a 5 to a 6 on both and is a little sticky on the lips.

Pours predictably amber with a tan head. The aroma has some smooth roasted malt, light spice, buttiness and a light amount of fruit. Medium body with mouth filling sharp carbonation. Flavor starts off with lightly roaste malt, some nuttiness and some diacetyl - but not as bad as many out there. The finish seems a bit spicy, but it could be all of the sharp carbonation. There is an astringency that just lingers around for far too long. Not a very good beer from a generally top notch brewery.

Caramel malt aroma. Clear amber color with a very frothy beige head. A bit thin. Reasonably malty, maybe caramelly. I agree that smooth it is. I think there is some hop, but maybe I am imagining that. Creamy smooth finish.

Oh another great anderson valley brew. Pours with a frothy head that slowly goes down. Appearance is red brown with a little cloud to it. Mouthfeel is beyond smooth, there is no bitter aftertaste just a nice sweet carmel flavor. A super smooth brew that is always enjoyable.

I like Anderson Valley beers, and Boont is kinda like a staple. It’s got a somewhat sweet maltiness to it, and the hops are mildly fruity. Overall a good beer, but I don’t think it really shines in any particular area.

Brown Amber Coloring With Light Sandy Head. Rich Caramel Malt Aroma. Light Grainy Background, Sweet Caramel Notes...Bitter Piney’ness to the Aftertaste. A Nice Amber, But There’s a Bit of a Twange There That Would Stop Me from Regularly Drinking This.

Bottle. Slightly unclear, copper-colored amber with a beige head. Hops, stock, malt and caramel makes the slightly sweet aroma. The flavor is fruity and hoppy, with pine-cones and maltyness. The finish as well is hoppy, on a weaker malty background. The full-bodied beer falls into the category "I like it!". (070119)
