Some beer lovers enjoy a rich, malty brew, while others go more for hoppy beers. Our brewmaster likes both - as evidenced by this rich and caramelly amber ale with the distinct flavor and bouquet of Cascade hops. Reaching the perfect balance of crystal malt sweetness and hop bitterness took plenty of time and effort, making Redpoint the perfect beer for toasting your most recent success.

Bottle. A floral and grassy, hoppy aroma that’s not too strong but nice all-around. Tastes sweet and of chocolate and toffee on one hand, but on the other very grapefruit, hoppy inspired. A nice, all-around flavor. I don’t have too much experience with amber ales, so if this is any indication, I’m looking forward to a long-lasting love with the variety! 5.1% alcohol.

jmm635 (994) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Pours clear, dark amber, with hints of red. Head was off-white, thin but creamy. Aroma is sweet àt first, followed by toasted malts and strong caramel notes. Flavor starts sweet and malty but finishes with a touch of bitterness. Not amazing, but a very good everyday beer.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2010
12 oz bottle - poured a clear reddish amber with a thick creamy white head that lasted for a bit with plenty of lacing on the glass. Aroma was full of roasted malt and caramel notes accompanied by a nice balancing hop with grapefruit notes. The body was medium-full with lively carbonation and a syrupy-creamy texture. The flavor starts out moderately sweet but is quickly taken over by the hop bitterness. Nice. At points during the brew it was reminiscent of a barleywine actually....

ContemplateBeer (2008) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Aroma of hard candy, caramel and brown sugar. Appearance is read with tan head. Flavor matches the nose, sweet for an amber. Palate was bubbly. A nice amber ale.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Had this for over a year and somehow the hops still stuck around. The aroma is a balance of hops and malts separately noted. The color is rch amber but not quite red. The flavors of hops and malts are also distinctlyu noted in the flavor as well. The cascade hops bring a bit of settling bitterness.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2010
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Reddish amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with caramel, orange peel and a hint of black-currant. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of blood oranges, caramel and a balanced, citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with some sweetness. Not one of the more exciting Avery beers, but solid and weel made.
