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.

Interesting caramel tasting beer. A little bitter, but smooth aftertaste. It is really good amber.

randolphjj (116) - Raymore, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2009
deep orange color with an off-white, small head. Nose gives lots of caramel malt. Tough to get the hop in the nose on this one with all the caramel malt, but the taste proves it in bitterness. Good amber.

DerBiermeister (586) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 3, 2009
Aroma of hops and reddish malt. Appearance is red and cloudy with minimal head. Flavor is carbonated, semisweet hoppiness, and red tones (?). Resembling a red pale ale? If such a thing can be said. Nice without being too overbearing or bitter.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Hazy deep orange with a medium tan head that leaves a wake of lace as it reacquaints itself with the brew below. Caramel aroma is balanced out by some grapefruit and pine. Body is balanced as well with a thick caramel start followed up by some nice citrus and woodsy hops. Goes down pretty easy and has a minor amount of bitterness. A nice amber.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Bottle pours a light tan, fading head with a clear amber body. Smells of fresh hops. Flavor is some burnt sugar, spice and bitter hops, and black tea. Finish is bitter and black tea.

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Bottle split with barrios at woody’s. Pours clear reddish amber with fair light tan head. Nice malt backbone with a decent florat and citrus hop profile that really stands out in the flavor. Not overly bitter. Like a retro red with a generous hop addition. Impressed.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Pours dark reddish amber with a 1-2 finger creamy beige head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel, some citrus hops, straw, birdseed and a little toasted bread. Flavor is grainy malt, caramel, toasted grain, sweet malt, citrus and planty hops throughout, and some mineral notes near the finish. Finish is citrus hops and a little bitterness with a burnt sugar fade. Palate is medium body, slightly slick and well carbonated (maybe a little on the sharp side) with a somewhat creamy entry and dry finish. Overall this is a really nice amber, lots of hop character

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 18, 2009
Bottle. Poured a bubbly amber with a creamy tan head that left light lace. Soapy aroma also with citrus hop and a caramel background. Flavor of caramel, toasted malts, and a hop background. Medium body and mild bitterness.

lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Dark copper pour, nice head and lacing. Beery sweet aroma. Fizzy and hoppy. A little bit nutty, nice mellow hops, with a touch of fruits. High carb and some alcohol in the finish. Nice beer, better than most.
