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.

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.

Rustyham (1732) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2009
Strong smell of chewy, malty barley, flavor is a crisp, thin, session. Palate is thin. This’d be best in a six-pack on a spring afternoon, with some fresh biscuits. Bottle at Total Wine, Naples, Florida.

Argentine (14) - Walla Walla, Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Aroma; light Pinappley American hop essence. Some maple syrup/malt. Taste; Carmel malt well balanced against toasty malt. Quite hoppy to a level that almost overpowers the malt= a good thing.

Grizzle (80) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - SEP 23, 2009
12 oz. -> Eng. Pint. Pours a honey-amber, with a basically white head. Smelled floral, with notes of marshmallow, toffee, and hops. Tasted sweet and hoppy. Caramelly maltball maltiness with a even bitter on the end. A fine amber.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Cask pour at the brewery on 7/17/09. Pours a light orange, decent head. Not a whole lot going on in aroma, but picked up some vanilla and caramel. Expected some rich deep sweetness, but this was very balanced and had a good bitterness. Smooth amber. Nice to see a good 5.1% ABV beer by Avery just to prove they don’t have to go big on everything.

On Tap at Old Chicago, Boulder 12/10/2008 Lots of malt aroma. Amber coloured a little rich on the palate and strong in alcohol with a crisp dry and slightly bitter full malt finish.

drowland (6169) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2009
Had this awhile back from the bottle. Wasn’t bad, I just didn’t find it particularly memorable.

TheJester (1963) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2009
Mondail 2009, Montreal. Reddish-brown with a small beige head. Mild aroma of grapefruit and caramel. Flavour is appealingly drinkable, with c-hops, nuts, and thin caramel. It gets a little tinny just before the end, and finishes with a gentle bitterness.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 12, 2009
On tap at brewery. Pours a clear reddish amber with a medium tan head. Smells slightly of toasted malts. Taste is toasted malt upfront, with earthy hops, and a fruit like malt middle, and a bitter hop finish along with a hint of tartness in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is clean, low carbonation. A very nice "smaller" beer from Avery.
