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.

Dogbrick (11327) - 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.

hopdog (11274) - 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.

daknole (10848) - 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.

hopscotch (10563) - 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!

KimJohansen (10416) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2008
Hazy dark amber with with medium off white head. Sweet fruity aroma with chocolate and hoppy notes. Same goes for the somewhat sweet flavor that also holds notes of caramel.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 1, 2007
Reddish colour. Nice aroma of hops, good fruitiness. Flavour of toasted malts, hops, caramel, bit sweet. Bitter aftertaste.

Maria (10214) - 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!

slowrunner77 (9946) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"for a supposedly british style brewery, this one’s pretty stinkin hoppy. looks unassuming, but between the aroma and the taste, this is a highly enjoyable bitter, floral, grapefruity ipa. well done."

DocLock (9876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2004
Pours dark amber/almost burgundy with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel, cabernet, hops. Tastes malty, with a good hop presence, and some finishing caramel. Medium mouthfeel, with a slightly dry finish. Very complex and well balanced, with some Belgian dubbelish qualities.
