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.

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
Dark amber, nice head. Aroma hops in the nose and the flavour is nicely bitter with notes of caramel and fruit. It’s a very well balanced beer, nice!

daknole (10035) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Amber pour. Off white head. Aroma is mostly toasted caramel malt, floral hops and a touch of fruit. Flavor has more hops than I expected with less caramel than most ambers. Not bad.

jtclockwork (9992) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with tan head. Semi clear. Nose of cascade hops and huge malt character. Taste is very malty, with cascade hops and some light spruce maple.

FatPhil (9908) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 14, 2007
355ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki , American Week 2007). Wonderful rounded malty brown aroma. Tastewise it’s a bit of an enigma - a strange combination of maltiness and hoppiness with some fruitiness too, and at the very end some rose petals. A bit of an uncoordinated mishmash to sell itself well.

hopscotch (9896) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Crystal clear, deep amber hue. Small, creamy, ivory head. Mostly lasting with very good lacing. Grapefruit, evergreen and white pepper in the nose. Some floral notes thrown in for good measure. Smells like a nicely hopped brew. The flavor is malty for a moment... then the "well-thought-out" hop addition kicks in up front. Lightly pungent and moderately bitter with notes of English toffee and butterscotch throughout. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, dry and bitter finish with a hint of dairy butter and butterscotch at the wee end. Reminds me of Butte Creek's Roland's Red. This is a HopHead's Amber Ale!

hopdog (9461) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2005
Poured a dark amber (almost copper) color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of mainly caramel with some citrus in the background. Tastes of caramel and light grapefruit. Starts of sweet and ends on a nice bitter note. Decently balanced amber ale.

DJMonarch (9162) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2009
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.

Dogbrick (8983) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Dark but radiant amber color with a medium thick light beige head and thick lacing. Aroma of hops, ash and malt. Medium-bodied and quite bitter all around. Lots of hops but with a nice caramel malt underbelly. The finish is bitter at first but sweetens. One of the better Amber ales I have had in awhile.

Thanks to jcwattsrugger for leaving this one in my fridge after a tasting awhile back. Deep amber beer with a thin white head. Deep rich malty aroma. Light caramel and grapefruity hop aroma. Light cookie dough maltiness. Slightly chewy and fruity. Good balance, lightly sweet and caramelly. A bit of fruitiness, orange and citrus. Lingering sweetness. Okay brew.
