BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Anderson Valley Brewing Company
California, United States
avbc.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / 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.

From a 12oz can. Dark amber color with a finger and a half of head. Smells of caramel and toffee. Medium body. Taste is caramel malt with some honey sweetness. Well balanced and a great example of the style.

From a can to a pint glass. Transparent attractive Amber red. Good lacy head with pretty good retention. Yeasty esters reminiscent of a bock on the nose, also some toast and hops in there too. A little honey on the aftertaste. Very balanced, nuanced, and well done.
