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.

I've always enjoyed Amber ales but this one was really special. It was a golden color with a nice foamy head. Would buy again.

Purchased in Naas Kildare Ireland Feb 2015. Very drinkable amber ale. Reasonable lacing and light mouth feel. Maybe too easy to drink ( I prefer the highly hopped IPAs). Note: I give high ratings if I like the beer.

Not very tasty compared to most ambers I've had. Kind of a fruity taste, not a true amber in my opinion.
