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.

Dark amber pour with an off white bubly head. Aroma ha a lot of citrus, including key lime pie and tangerine, as well as a biscuity, caramel quality. Flavor has more of a pine resin taste, along with the citrus, caramel, and specifically an orange rind taste at the end. Palate is light, a bit watery, but a very nice amber ale.

Amber pour, offwhite head. aroma is an interesting mix of hops and some nice caramel malt. citrus comes through a lot, specifically key lime. very flavorful, hints of orange peel and some nice resinous notes. Malt character is sweet and molassesy. Very nice, refreshing.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Pours a slightly cloudy amber with modest beige head. Aroma is biscuity caramel malt, lemon and grapefruit, and key lime. Hop character and malty sweetness balanced nicely. Flavor is molasses and caramel, maintaining an excellent degree of bitterness in the form of pine and lemonpeel. Palate is quite full for the style with moderate carbonation and lasting, coating finish, Surprised.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Pours a rich amber color with a frothy beige head. Spicy citrus aroma and caramel. Taste is not as hoppy as the aroma leads to believe but is still above average in bitterness. It is very well balanced, nice creamy texture and just enough hop bite with a touch of roast.

unclemike (2305) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours copper red with a large ivory head. The aroma is faint, but bready with citrus notes. The flavor is toast, caramel, and some fruity hop flavor. There is mild bitterness in the finish, just enough to dry out the caramel sweetness. A burnt-raisin type flavor comes out in the aftertaste. Not bad.

12 oz. bottle. A good brownish red pour under a big pillow of tan foam. Smell brings up some crisp hops, probably PNW, of course. Also a toasty malt smell. Foamy head lasts longer in the glass than most other bottled beers. First taste feels a bit creamy. Then shows a graham cracker feel and taste from the malts, just not as sweet. Hops offer sharp bitterness with surrounding sea of pine. Aggressive taste and a bit of alcohol to show this ainít no session ale.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - APR 15, 2009
Quite hoppy...almost like a Pale. Some aroma/flavor of caramel and malt, but mainly hops. Good hop flavor, but not enough malt for an Amber.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Pours a pretty clear light amber color, with a small off white head. Smells of some juicy citrus hops, and caramel malt. Thats mostly everything I got out of it. Theflavor was actual pretty sharp for an amber. The hops were very evident, with a good malty backbone. Light hop bitterness left in the finish of it. This was a very nice drinking little session amber.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Bottle from Martinís in Mt. Laurel. Clear cherrywood pour supporting a thin and short lasting light tan head. Very malty aroma. Strong toasted malt dominates the flavors with a healthy dose of caramel and just a hint of vanilla. Firm but silky mouthfeel and a moderately sweet finish where some hop presence waves a tentatve hand and seeks notice for the first time. As ambers go this is a solid brew but it didnít blow me away.

7-11-08. Bottle. Poured coppery-orange. Head was a creamy off white. Smelled of malt and sugar. Tasted a little roasty, some spices, and a nice grain or cookie flavor. Nutty, sugary, toasty. Long aftertaste. Pretty nice stuff.
