COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ropewalk is a mellow, malt-driven amber that dances a subtly sweet line. The balance of Crystal malt with a subtle dose of Northwest hops delivers a refreshing ale that makes for a great session beer. Originally brewed to mark our 20th anniversary, Ropewalk – which literally means “a long narrow building where rope is made” – is a tribute to our building’s roots as a rope factory, while also celebrating feats of daring everywhere.

I loved this beer; I guess to each his own... The smell was wonderful, inviting, provacative. The deep amber color was beautiful. This is what I’ve been looking for in an amber that has a bit more punch then Fat Tire.

Aroma: fruity and delicious, vaguely autumnal. Brilliant deep amber pour, with a 1/2 inch foamy head. Clean mouthfeel, good whitewatery level of carbonation with a clean finish. Really nice honeyed malt flavors, jacketed in a crisp hoppy note that lingers into the aftertaste. The first one was a bit jarring, as I was expecting a mellow amber, and instead got this very firm flavor, almost like a pumpkin ale. But if you’re prepped for it, it’s a fun ride.

This is pretty good for a so-called "amber ale," a type which I often find to be bland and subdued. It is red amberwith a big tan head steadily shrinking to a thin top and a hint of lace. The aroma is tasty stewed prunes, bread, hints of caramel, leaves, herbs, and wine. The taste is similar, being zesty, herbal/leafy bread, hint of caramel, fruit, pine, and ginger ale. As with many, it is smooth and drnikable, but it is more tasty, complex, and interesting than many of this ilk and quite satisfying, It also goes pretty well with food.

Nice dark reddish color with a nice cream colored head. This was a great tasting amber ale. Not my favorite amber ale but a good one nonetheless.

Sweet fruit and caramel malt aromas. Good looking red amber with a big head that compresses down to quarter thickness in short order. Sweet fruits int he fore. grape dominates. Then some malt smoothness. Almost marzen like characteristics and every bit as tasty as some of the better marzens.

RopeWalk is a delicious malt accented session brew that has a very pleasing malt aromas and flavors of pale and crystal malts. This beer is of course hopped with some local hop varieties, but unlike many hop charged Amber Ales, this one strikes a nice balance between malt and hop character. At 4.5% abv, it is a perfect session brew, and I enjoyed a few pints of this beer with a great lunch one cool Sunday afternoon in Portland. It is nice to know this beer is available in bottles as well, and can be found in markets where Bridgeport beers are sold. RopeWalk Amber Ale pours to a beautiful, bright, amber color with a nice white head that fades, and a nice bit of carbonation. The nose on this beer is malt accented with aromas of sweet and biscuit malt, and a pleasing back drop of citric hop aroma. The palate is crisp on the tongue with lots of good pale and sweet malt flavor, a hints of lightly buttered toast. RopeWalk finishes with more good malt and toast flavors up front, then ends with a mild citric hop bitterness to balance out the sweetness of this beer. This is an excellent, very drinkable beer, one I enjoyed drinking fresh on draught, and one I would enjoying drinking in its bottled form as well.

I found this beer to be quite interesting and pleasant. Had on draft at the brewpub it pours a amber color with a small white head. Sweet, malty nose and flavor with just enough hop to balance it to the style. One of the better Amber’s around.

This is a pretty run-of-the-mill amber, maybe a bit of average. This was also one of the first beers I’d tried from Bridgeport. I picked it up in Taos, NM. Light reddish brown, okay head, with a light roasted aroma, some grassy hops and a caramel base.

Out of the bottle. Very clear beautiful amber color with good carbonation. Medium off white head. Nose is hops and malt with an almost roasted hint. Very easy to drink, malty flavor, very refreshing. A great beer from my favorite brewery.
