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.

Grapefruit juice red with a huge, thick off-white head. Big nose of fresh baked bread and citrusy hops. Big cacsade hops nose like a Rogue Ale. Sweet caramel is the first taste. An almost sour apple note is lurking beneath the bready, thick, sweet malt. Hops is mighty and clean and stays strong on the palate long after I've swallowed. Mmm Mmm good!

Reddish color. Smell is of malt and citrus. Caramel taste, but really sweet. Nothing more than an average unimpressive beer.

Terribly nice American ale showing off quite complex malt flavors with hops playing the background role, as per style. This is an easy drinker, but the toasted, fruity and caramel malt flavors will grab your attention. Great lacing too.

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 Re-rate-pours a dark copper hue with with nice tan rocky head. medium carbonation. very cascade hop aroma-slight citrus but mostly caramel malts and piney hops. very balanced flavors of biscut-y/toasty malts and piney hops. body is pretty good for an amber ale. long hoppy finish. Definately a solid amber! I dont think i have had a bad avery beer yet!

Very interesting taste---kinda tart, kinda bitter, with carmel Nicely complex flavor, with slightly oily mouthfeel. Pleasant surprise, especially since it was cheap when purchased. Would definately purchase again...

I can’t see clearly, but the label appears to depict a pointy hunk of moldy bleu cheese. Ample malt to balance out the hops here. Given its warmth, you’d think it’s 7% abv. Oddly, I can’t taste the bleu cheese at all.

great hop and fruit aroma. nice malt taste with a very acidic sourfinish. almost scotch-like in complexity. would make a good cask conditioned bitter.

Ernest (6164) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit), with light notes of ashtray, dirt. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Kinda dull this time around, with a hint of that ashtray stink I found plentiful in this year’s Mephistopheles. I wonder what the deal is.
