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.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAR 10, 2004
Amber color with a medium sized frothy head. Nose is sweet malt with some floral notes. Flavour opens a bit malty and passes through bittersweet before arriving at at the clear grapefruit of cascade hops still with a nice malt backbone. An very well crafted and dangerously drinkable amber.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Reddish Orange, maybe copper, maybe auburn? Decent white head. Peppery, veggie aroma - coleslaw, perhaps? Nice west coast hop flavor, some bready malt - rather full bodied. IPA-ish, but with a good bit of malt.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 9, 2004
This beer poured a very cool shade of red and had a nice head but left little lacing on the glass. The aroma was a caramel malt backed by some nice hoppyness. The flavor was a little more hoppy than expected with flavors of grains and had a little citrus as well. I enjoyed this beer and will have it again.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Aroma is dominated by hops. Nice copper red pour, thin head and some lacing. Strong in hops, but seemed 'right' to me. Overall flavor was better than expected.

Beaver (1264) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2003
The Redpoint poured a coppery reddish-orange, with a thin head that quickly went down to a thin lacing. The aroma was citrus and malts. It tasted of citrus initially with a very bitter, hoppy finish. I felt the bitterness was way too much for an amber and prevented me from enjoying the beer more.

light copper color, very thin almond colored head. aroma has some citrusy hops with caramelly malts. first whiff i took was STRONG on grapefruit...second whiff, HEY! where the hell did they go?!?! flavor isnt bad, with similar characteristics to the aroma, but has a fairly thin and watery texture. the finish is moderately long and slightly bitter though.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Dark brown. Foamy tan head. Smells of some west coast hop varieties, and sweet syrupy maple. Mouthfeel is moderately dry, resembling and IPA. Flavors of some red apple peel, hockory smoke, and maple. Not bad, but missing something exciting.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2003 Started off with a nice hop nose, but sweet also. I expected malts - not let down there - sweet caramel, fruity, hints of roasted dark chocolate, and body was medium thick. The nice surprise was the generous and well balanced hop presence. Color was somewhere between amber, brown and ruby; good head and great lacing. Finally, an Amber that I really like!

UPDATED: APR 9, 2004 Bottled on 1-9-04.Nice aroma of crystal malts and cascade hops(a heady sweetness).A nice head and lovely lace.Good hops with a solid malt back.If you like Red seal and Hopback then this should be enjoyed as well.One of my favorite well hopped amber ales.

This wasn't too bad but it's not my favorite amber ale. It was only average yet I may buy it again.
