Our Boatilla Amber Ale is brewed using a blend of Pale 2 Row and Cara Munich malts that give it a beautiful, deep reddish hue. It’s well balanced, but has a bolder maltiness than our Kölsch. Boatilla is the perfect beer for those summer evenings spent floating on the water with friends and family.

This is a BEAUTIFUL beer! Lacks the aroma I would expect when looking at the beautiful amber color. In reading the intent of the brewery I thought they did a great job brewing this beer. They lightened the finish with out compromising the body which I thought had a great roasted malt taste, with a hint of sweetness and maybe a little nutty flavor, but I think that is where I got the sweetness from.

Good head. Nice amber color. Malty and hoppy nose slight fruit doughty bready undertone. Crisp an refreshing. Nice clean flavor. Good malt and hops balance.

Good beer/ale with balanced flavor, aroma. Enjoyable because I can have a couple and not be overwhelmed with resin, malt, etc. Aroma is balance though subtle. Appearance is clean bright amber with a red hue. It did linger on the palate well, then cleared off the tongue nicely. Potential for a go to beer when not feeling adventurous.

Pours a golden bronze with a thick frothy light tan head with lots of carbonation evident. Nose is a yeasty bread. Rich and creamy on the palate, the taste is of malts and grains with a nice crisp finish. A very enjoyable beer from a relative newcomer to the Milwaukee brewing scene. Pairs well with pizza or cheese and crackers.

Deep amber with red hues. Aroma is fresh, crisp, and malty with some mild hopping. Flavor has a fairly robust malt backbone (caramel and toasted malts) with a dry, mildly-hoppy finish. A solid amber ale that is quite refreshing. Great start guys!

12 oz bottle
A nice amber ale this was a good introduction to a new brewery. It might be that this is the best they have to offer. If not then I’ll be checking out a few more of their beers once I go back through Wisconsin. For the affordable price point it is a winner.

Aroma / Appearance - The almond brown body has a warm glow. Mocha foamy head sits peacefully above the surface. Almond butter, cocoa powder, and then a light sweetness trade off appearances. Gentle soft hops are present as well.

Flavor / Palate - Gentle hops tickle the throat. A light mixture of almonds, cocoa, and soft malts wake up the senses. The sensation fades quickly but leaves enough of a mark to please the palate. If this came from a brewery with a track record for excellence it would be a bit of a letdown. Coming from an unknown brewer however it was a good introduction and hopefully not the last.

badgerben (5380) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Darkish brown with a falling, medium head. Caramel and nutty aroma. A fairly strong buttery/nutty Munich malt flavor. On the bitter side, but more grain bitter/astringent than hop induced.

CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Pours a clear copper amber with a clingy-laicng froth of off-white head. Has a toasted lightly sweet caramel nose with a touch of piny hops. Starts with average body and effervescence with some light caramel sweetness and an earthy bittering hop balance before a slightly drier toasted malty finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable, but could use a touch more sweetness.

The Dan Journal #452. Tasted 2/26/11.12oz bottle. Filtered with a golden amber hue. Medium ring of bone white head. Aromasof butterscotch, honey and maple syrup. Medium bodied with a nice toasty malt character. All malts with a balanced maltiness with a nutty flavor. Decent enough!

dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 4, 2011
Bottle pours amber/copper with an off-white head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, nuts, pine, and light earth. Flavor shows the same with a somewhat oxidized character to it. Overall body is moderate, dry, and lightly bitter.
