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.

Very nice malt/hop aroma-everythng you would want in a west coast amber. Flavor a good balance of caramel malt sweetness and American hop charecter. Eventually too sweet for a session, but a solid beer.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Clear amber brown color with a quickly diminishing light tan head. Sweet caramel malt, floral hops and with undertones of necturines. Malty and quite a bit of sweet fruit in the start, followed by a floral flavor. Rather sharp and strong hops bitterness in the finish. This one is growing on me even though I am not a big fan of this style.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2004 Very interesting; an APA with an extra dose of darker caramel malt. Slightly sweet, but not too much so. This is a crowd-pleasing beer as the malty sweetness subdues the cascades. Those who are scared away by the "amber ale" moniker like I was, don't be. Try this one. Sort of an "American Bitter?"

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2003
Very nice amber color,small white head that had a slight holding power.malty,fruity aroma with a mild spiciness as well.Malty sweet taste with a medium hoppiness and a mild fruit tone to it as well,there was also a slight earthiness to this one as well or is it nutty,eather way you be the judge i think it is mildly earthy in my untrained palate opinion.The after taste was pretty decent,slightly bitter with a feel that was some what full or syrupy IMOThis is a pretty decent brew and well worth the price and shipping it took to get it here.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUN 16, 2003
Distictive light cherry color. Fruity flavor with a caramel aftertaste. Good blending of malt and hops. I thought the finish wasn't too bitter. Basketball net lacing around the glass, nice. I could get used to this beer.

JCW (1274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Amber colored and translucent. Head rims the glass. Dried grass and carmel aroma. Flavor of malt with a fair amount of bitterness, but not a terrible flavorful bitterness. Bitter finish.

hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Crystal clear, deep amber hue. Small, creamy, ivory head. Mostly lasting with very good lacing. Grapefruit, evergreen and white pepper in the nose. Some floral notes thrown in for good measure. Smells like a nicely hopped brew. The flavor is malty for a moment... then the "well-thought-out" hop addition kicks in up front. Lightly pungent and moderately bitter with notes of English toffee and butterscotch throughout. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, dry and bitter finish with a hint of dairy butter and butterscotch at the wee end. Reminds me of Butte Creek's Roland's Red. This is a HopHead's Amber Ale!

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Dark amber color. Medium body. Aroma is malty and slightly roasted. A medium bodied amber. Malts are slightly roasted, nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are spicy and a touch piney. Nice balanced. Nothing outstanding, just a tasty, refreshing and very drinkable amber. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

beerbastard (669) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2003
Warm reddish brown color. Fruity with hop aromas. Interesting sweet and bitter combination of taste. Roasty malt and earthy hop tones. Medium palate. Nice long dry finish, that roasted malt lasted awhile. Good stuff.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2003
Another great beer from Avery, fresh from the tap at “Papago Brewery”.

Quite dark amber color, the head portly in size, frothy in its texture, the color a winsome tan and the resultant lace a fine covering upon the glass. Sweet malt nose, crisp and clean as it the start, the top moderate in its feel to the palate. Finish was acidic and nicely hopped, dry linger aftertaste, a quite quaffable brew.
