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.

Ungstrup (29170) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2007
Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with an OK bubbly orange-brown head. The aroma is very hoppy with notes of grapefruit, grass, and pine needles, on a sweet background. The flavor is sweet malty and to start off with notes of caramel and roasted bread, but this is fastly overpowered by the hops with strong notes of grapefruit and pine needles, which carries thru to a very dry and quite bitter end, with a note of berries lingering together with the pine needles - reminds me of a pine forest in the autumn.
