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.

Looked good. Very orange taste, I didn't enjoy it that much. I expected a malty taste and it was exactly the opposite.

L: Clear amber with a sticky, creamy beige head with excellent retention and some clinging lacing.

S: Sweet caramel, toasty bread, caramelized sugar, earthy and woody hop tones.

T: Tons of sticky-sweet caramel, toasted bread, toffee, turns buttery/butterscotch on the finish, balances out with a touch of earth and pine, and then finishes mostly clean, with some lingering caramel sweetness.

F: Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, slick and slightly oily from the sugars and hops.

Had it on tap at the Bayou on Bay in Bellingham, WA. Small head that quickly disperses. Dark copper color. Low carbonation. Faint smell. Rich taste with notes of toffee and caramel. Hint of biscuit. Mellow mouthfeel.

Pours more brown than amber or copper, with a medium off white to light khaki head that had some staying g power and leaves a little lacing. Nose is malty with caramel malts and toast and just a touch of hops in the back. Taste follows suit with a sweeter, fuller bodied, maltier beer than expected. A bit marzen like. Not a typical American amber, but flavorful and overall good if you like them malty.
