COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A- Translucent caramel colored body that pours with massive frothy off-white head. The head takes awhile to tame and settles as a thick collar. Lots of lacing is left behind in the glass. S- not much to pick up on here. Definitely has a sweet caramel malt nose with floral hops in the background. T- Initial taste is bland with almost nothing going on. It takes a second for a slight floral hop bitterness to come through with a light caramel malt backing. Finish is a balance of caramel malt and floral hop. Sweet caramel malt lingers with little resounding hop bitterness. P- Medium to high carbonation up front and medium weight body. Carbonation seems to disappear quickly exposing a smooth and creamy body that is easily to swallow. A little bit thin overall. O- My last beer to review from my Avery variety pack. This certainly was not the best offering but its still decent overall. Its easy to drink and pretty good but a little bit on the boring side. Iíd drink this again but it probably wonít be my first choice. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-27-2007 16:39:23

bottled. pours mahagany with minimal tan head. smells of floral hops, herbs and evergreen. Hops are noteworthy on the tongue along with a bitter evergreen. it is medium bodied and bitter. It finishes with the feel of citrus rind and tin. Itís just OK

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2010
UPDATED: APR 15, 2010 Nice and clean beer. Medium bodied with a crisp palate. Pretty hoppy stuff along the grapefruit vein. Not filling like a lot of ambers can be, and this one has a low "beer" profile to it and more of a real ale quality, if that makes sense. If not, shouldnít you be doing spreadsheets instead of reviewing beers at work? Damnit, I canít wait to punch out cause I am fucked up..

12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is ruddy amber with a half inch of off-white foam sitting on the top. Nose is malt, cellar, and caramel, but there are also hops that offset the brew from coming off too sweet. Taste is right on par with the nose, and is spot on to that discretionary line between bitter and sweet. The finish is dry with just enough bitter to be pleasant. I am also detecting some variety of spice in the finish, somewhat like ginger, but I canít put my finger on it. This is a very solid offering from Avery, and one that I would definitely enjoy seconds off!

Has a malty aroma. A cloudy red/amber color. Has a light malty, somewhat bitter taste. Its pretty good. I have yet to be disappointed in a beer from Colorado. But yeah, I like it.

I was happy to come across a bottle of this - hadnt seen it before. Sweet, malty aroma. A rich malty brew with some tang and hop notes, and a bit of barnyard scent. Amber is not really my favorite style, but when Avery makes it, things turn out all right.
