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

Way better then expected. Poured an amber color with okay head and lacing. Aroma was a little floral some malts. Flavor was a nice balance of malts and hops some spices in there as well. Mouthfeel was average. Good amber.

bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a lacy pale yellow head. Aroma of fruit, caramel and pine. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Bread and caramel taste. Crisp piney finish. Sessionable except for the 5.8% ABV. Where are they hiding it?

hopdog (12208) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2007
12oz bottle acquired in trade (Mystery Swap v2) with Saarlander (thanks!). Poured a medium to deeper amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, bready, and lightly fruity. Tastes of caramel, toffee, lightly bready, and the same light fruitiness. Thinner body.

Nice looking amber ale. Darker than most with a buttery head. A little fruity, almost sweet taste with very little hoppyness. Not without its charm.

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.

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.
