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.

Bottle. A floral and grassy, hoppy aroma thatís not too strong but nice all-around. Tastes sweet and of chocolate and toffee on one hand, but on the other very grapefruit, hoppy inspired. A nice, all-around flavor. I donít have too much experience with amber ales, so if this is any indication, Iím looking forward to a long-lasting love with the variety! 5.1% alcohol.

Terribly nice American ale showing off quite complex malt flavors with hops playing the background role, as per style. This is an easy drinker, but the toasted, fruity and caramel malt flavors will grab your attention. Great lacing too.

Deep reddish hue with nice lacing effects on the glass. Wonderful flavor and yet not too hoppy.

i like this beer. slightly hazy amber color with a tan head. a nice malty aroma with a hint of hops in the background. i think that bitterness up front with a malt filled center and a slightly bitter end. overall i feel it is well balanced but it could have been a little more malty on the front.

Clear copper color with thin off white head. Very nice aroma of hops and malts. Taste is round grapefruit hop flavor along with some sharper grapefruit hop bitterness plus a sweet malt backbone. It tastes and smells a bit more like an IPA. It is darn hoppy for an amber type ale, which is fine with me. Overall an excellent balance of hops and malts. I will certainly try it again.

Caramelly sweet aroma with lots of juicy hops too, you can almost see the strings of caramel in your mind, with a snazzberry orange wazz, like a tart naturally made christmas candy.. Big holey beige head on robust red nearly translucent beer. unusual caramell citrus hoppiness too, but I like it. Still, strange and a note of some kind of flower. IPA-like palate, extremely quenching, I canít help gulping it a bit. First beer Iíve gulped in a long time leading me to think thereís a session of this in the near future. Man, once you get away from that heavy stuff & top percentile stuff you find some really fine underrated beers. Nice bitter finish. Some minor flaws, but the kind of beer Iíd rather have than the higher rated stuff most of the time these days.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours thin amber with lively carbonation and frothy head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is bready hops, with floral hints and roasted nut as well. Flavor is a nice onslaught of restrained hops that is immediately joined by nutty malt. Finishes bitter and sweet, with notes of candy. Nice mouthfeel; smooth and lustrious. Great beer.

TopherDrinks (96) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Pours a copper, murky amber with a nice tan head that slowly fades to a ring. Smells so good; grapefruit, orange, and pine, from the hops with a malty end. A certain sourness is also very noticeable. Taste is nearly identical, piney citrus in the beginning with a malty backbone. Once again, a strange but enjoyable sourness rests on the tongue. Easy drinking with a great bouquet and hop/ malt balance. Another great beer from Avery.

This is a very good but basic amber ale. not nearly enough hops or malts for me. it is very clean and simple with roasted malts and subtle hops.
