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.

scoth (465) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2009
Pours clear scarlet-brown, with a medium beige head, with good and lasting lacing. Grassy, biscuit, and caramel aromas. Medium body, creamy and crisp. Flavors of toast, grass, nuts. A bit more hops than in many ambers. Well-balanced, drinkable and satisfying.

topherh (1907) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Bottle pours orange-amber with an off white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt and citrus and pine hops. Flavor is a nice balance of sweet malt and hops. Very quaffable an amber ale someone actually might like to drink more than once.

daknole (8550) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Amber pour. Off white head. Aroma is mostly toasted caramel malt, floral hops and a touch of fruit. Flavor has more hops than I expected with less caramel than most ambers. Not bad.

williamherbert (1229) - Syracuse, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Incredibly thick and cloudy brick/falu red color. Puffy head that leaves a smooth film of lace. Looks very thick and murky; splendid. Toasted malt aroma, but with some sweet sugary notes. Has the toasted quality of a red amber, and the brown sugary sweetness of a brown ale; the brown half of it wins the duel. The taste is a sweet beginning, with some bold liqueur flavors and an alcohol burst. Roasted malt, tempered by slight sweetness. Bold red/amber flavor with an added sugary sweetness. A tad saccharine, but not enough to ruin the flavor. Feel is full-bodied and creamy. Leaves a lasting thickness. Mellows out nicely halfway through. A substantial, complex, balanced beer. Quite soild. Might be too thick for repeats.

mansquito (3114) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Pours quickly dissipating beige head, but that head leaves all sorts of syrupy lacing around. Beer is cloudy amber brown color, don’t look like your average amber ale. Aroma is mostly sweet maltiness. Taste ain’t too bad, mostly malts around front and middle, and then proceeds to get some nuttiness and earthiness at the end. Thicker than your average rubbish amber and that is in every way a good thing. The biggest flaw with this beer is that it is still and amber ale, a beer style whose existence I cannot comprehend.

dirt55 (198) - Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Bottled, clear red/amber with thin white head, sweet malt aroma with equal presence of citus hops, Full/thick sweet malt with nice hops in the end and lingering palate to balance out sweetness, a little too sweet for more then one pint

tgncc (2664) - Bellmore, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Nice caramel aroma, slight floral hops. The appearance is amber red, off-white head. The flavor is caramel malts, slight bread dough, and a slight and unexpected taste of puke (not sure why). The finish has a light bittering of piney hops. Medium mouthfeel. Decent overall, if not a classic.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a hazed amber, reddish-brown colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma is chewy, moderately sweet caramels, some brown sugar nuts, crystal malt and bread, thin fruits, and a mild hopping. Flavor is slightly bready, chewy crystals and caramels with a light, earthy bitterness. A light toasty toffee and nutty maltiness before a lightly bittered, sweet crystal, somewhat citrus finish. Slightly dry after a light body, but very smooth and creamy mouth-feel. Overall, a well balanced amber. Its rather unexciting, but a solid malt body and hop bitterness make this enjoyable. Not bad.
