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

Caterwaul (51) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Two finger, fluffy off-white head recedes to about a half finger and retains admirably. Burnt orange, dark amber body. Sweet and fruity nose with zesty hop notes, too. Almost like iced tea. Sweet, creamy, and flavorful. Full bodied. Fruity, spicy, bitter, and tea-like. Drinks soooo easily. I love this stuff.

Hazy amber to copper, lasting small off-white head. Red fruits, toasty malts, light hops, very fruity. Mostly dry with some malty sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, dry aromatic finish. A good example of the style.

Luneylane (226) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - SEP 30, 2017
A bottle from the basement of 101. Aroma: malty caramel, very inviting. Appearance: Pours a generous tan head which quickly dissipates to 2 mm. of froth. Hazy dark amber. Palate: medium-bodied and rather creamy, average carbonation. Flavoursome malty finish. Taste: medium sweet and bitter, well-balanced. Some coffee at the finish, tastes boozier than it is, I like it.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2017 Can from Liquor Express. It poured an amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel and some stone fruits. The taste is sweet.

I don't know what it is about ambers but they just have a very flat taste to them even when you know it's fresh. That lingering flavor trumps what could be a really good beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A good brew to sip on a summer’s night. A smooth amber that goes down easy.

Uit fles, thuis. Eerst een mooie schuimlaag, zakt wel snel in. Mooie amberkleur. Ruikt goed. De smaak bevalt goed, niet te zwaar, maar wel vol genoeg. Prima bier.

Bottle. Thin beige head, not lasting. Nice nose, caramel, dry fruits. But the taste is quite disappointing : thin body, quite dry, not that much flavour. A surprisingly medium bitterness. Not an ordinary amber. Not bad, but could not be what you look for when you want an amber....

From tap. Clear amber pour with a nice frothy head. Nose is odd, caramel and dried milk. Flavors are caramel malts balanced with grassy hops which become more prominent on the finish.

kaserov (924) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 22, 2017
Color cobre, translúcido, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarronado de tres dedos de grosor (retención decente). Carbonatación media. Textura acuosa. Aroma a malta (recuerda a whiskies de una malta), caramelo, lúpulo, ligeros cítricos, frutos secos, especias. En boca es maltosa, con mucho caramelo y reminiscencias de frutos secos, así como un toque especiado (no sé qué especias, quizá clavo, quizá nuez moscada, quizá cardamomo...) Toques cítricos y lupulados aquí y allá redondean todo. Final sin amargor. Regusto y postgusto a caramelo y frutos secos. Es una cerveza compleja, extraña y sumamente disfrutable, nunca me cansaré de beberla. Nunca me cansaré, tampoco, de intentar definirla. Al fin y al cabo, he dado solo tres o cuatro pinceladas de lo que creo que es esta cerveza, no de lo que es realmente. Para eso, que cada uno la pruebe y juzgue. Amber Ale de nivel.
