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

Nice pour, decent head, some malt, caramel, hops on the aftertaste, refreshing brew, very nice for me.

I was shocked to discover that this beer was amber colored and that it had a medium sized head that was fluffy. I had never seen that before in an amber ale. Whats even more flabbergasting is that it smelled like a malt-forward beer, lightly fruity, with hints of caramel while having very little hop bitterness. Much to my amazement, the flavor was rather sweet with only a touch of bittering hops at the end. What will they think of next? A hoppy IPA? Oh yeah, this stuff is too expensive.

Very nice looking, cloudy amber ale. There was a lot of cappucino taste in this. The hops were also very noticable with light hints of caramel and some various earthy flavors. Nice dry finish. Looks better than it tastes but overall is a decent drink - above average.

A very drinkable beer with a nice caramel aroma. Good aftertaste and very smooth throughout.

I thought this was quite good for the medicore amber ale style. Pour is fairly dark amber with decent off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, malt, and hops. Flavors of sweet malt, caramel, toffee, and enough hops to balance the beer. A nice enjoyable amber.

EithCubes (5721) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2007
Bottled. Caramel and hops nose, light citrus and fruit, certainly lemon and peach. Sweet with some cookie dough. Clear red body with a foamy beige head. Tastes caramelly with a balanced bitter. Finishes with some dry biscuit and flowery hops. Light bubbles on the tongue fade into smooth light-medium body. There really is a nice balance struck here, and a surprisingly good mix of dark fruity sweetness and bready dryness, but its too light and hollow.

pours an almost clear amber. Medium to large off white head. Aroma is sweet malt, light notes of fruit. Taste is dark caramel, apples, very well balanced with hop bitterness. Very good amber.

smooth, sweet and tasty. I little sour aftertaste and very dry finish. I would skip this one.

Slightly hazy copper-amber, with a good-sized tan head. Peppery, toasty aromas that are distinctive but inviting. Somewhat thin mouthfeel, with malt that starts out caramel but then turns drier and roasted in character. The hops are faint but decidedly citrus in profile. A smidgen of oxidative notes lurk in the background. Finish is a little astringent. This beer looks great and smells very good, but the drying astringency didnt leave such a good impression. I would bet that it would show better paired with food, however.
