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.

yngwie (13938) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2006
Bottled. A bit unclear, amber beer with an off-white head. Fruity and piney aroma with a rich maltyness with some beefstock notes and hops. Hops, malt, sweetness, pinecones and some citrus in the flavor. Full-bodied and sugary mouthfeel. Long piney finish. A bit on the hoppy side, could use a bit more balance. (060921)

Theis (13755) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
Bottle at home. Red, brown colour. Malty and hoppy smell. At first i got a very hoppy smell and taste, both flowery and bitter taste, but later the fruit, caramel malts showed them self. A lovely pleasant Red Ale. But still, it has a bitter finish.

TBone (12955) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2006
Bottled. Reddish copper brown, small off-white head. Bready, malty aroma. Carbonated sweetish malty and backed with "typical" "Avery hops" (Cascade it is). Very refreshing and very American.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2008
Reddish-amber colour with a slight haze. Crystal malt, brown sugar, orange and wood on the nose. Sweet, with a slight turbinado and tea accent. Bitterness in the low 20s, with a slight woodines and very light apricot fruitiness. Yeah, it’s an American red all right.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2009
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus, toasted grain, pineapple, light floral, and caramel. Flavor of caramel malt and hops (citrus, grass).

argo0 (11590) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Clear copper body with medium beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, caramel, some cookie, floral. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some caramel, light toffee. Medium body, light resin, light acidity. Might as well consider this an APA given its hop character. Enjoyable everyday sort of beer.

bhensonb (11378) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Strange (to me) raisiny malt aroma. Cloudy amber color. Head went fast. It’s malty, it thins quickly, and the hop does not have much presence. There is a grapefruit presence, but it is not all that bitter. Somehow I don’t find this all that attractive. It improves with more sips and time, but ....
