Today we have Boont amber ale from Anerson Valley brewery standing at 5.8%. The smell of malt really kicks you in the face straight away, followed by a hint of non sweet caramel with an enduring wedge of hay. The colour is dark clear brown, with no head and very low carbonation. Taste is very malty, nutty, a little sweet, bready, an edge of bitter and also caramac (yes that childhood confectionery). Its full of flavour while drinking but really quickly disappears, leaving you with a malty bitterness then dough like aftertaste which leaves you wanting more.
This is somehow quite a fun beer. And by the way, that isn’t a moose on the label.
