My all-time favourite session beer, and the best American amber at that. Perfect malt backbone with a great hop character- excellent balance. Beautiful colour!! I am happy and proud to turn on as many people as possible to this beer.

I'd like to thank AVBC for hours of pleasurable Boont Amber drinking.

Brewed by Anderson Valley Brewing Company in Mendocino county, presentation 12 ounce bottle.
This is an amber ale that I will never be able to forget. Its taste is very similar to SLO Amber Ale, yet Boont is a little more on the hoppy side. Full bodied, very thick amber malts, perfectly compensated by the complex taste of the strong bittering hops. Pours a rich mouth watering amber color, you can smell the hints of the hops while you are pouring it. Exceptional drinkability, some might find it to be a little hoppy for an amber ale, yet nothing one can't handle, but i believe the strong hops blended perfectly with the sweet hints of caramel are what make this beer so deliciously complex.
I can't wait to go up to the brewry and have some "Bahl Hornin'," as they say in Mendocino county (good drinking) Boont on draught.

After pouring it into my glass I was impressed by the brightness of the color and the activity of the carbonation, which provided a rich creamy head. This beer had wonderful aromas of caramel malt and pine (hops). The mouth feel is extremely full, round and silky. A very full flavored amber. The balance of malt and hop characters is the best I've tasted in sometime!
