Boont Amber Ale
Anderson Valley Brewing Co.
The Boont Amber Ale is an American-style amber ale. The initial pour gives a really nice copper color with a medium body with a strong head and minimal lacing on the glass. The taste of the beer is a sweet carmel flavoring with a slight bitter taste, but not overwhelming at all. I don’t think there is really anything special about this beer but I would definitely drink this again.
The name of the beer comes from Boontling which is the focal center of the Anderson Valley. It was the first ale produced at the brewery’s famous Boonville brewery. According toe the local Anderson Valley dialect developed in the 1800s, they would say ‘It’s Bahl Hornin’!” which translates to “It’s good drinking.” I would have to agree.
