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.

Ernest (7517) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2007 Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit), with light notes of ashtray, dirt. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Kinda dull this time around, with a hint of that ashtray stink I found plentiful in this years Mephistopheles. I wonder what the deal is.

i dont have my glasses, whats that craggy roast beef looking thing on the label supposed to be? a hypothetical cross-section of my liver i think. i can see the beer just fine, tho: gorgeous teaky irish setter red with a top as lush as a sheep skin seat cover. auspiscious nose tells of woody incense and tropical fruit markets, a pop-tart toasting and about a teaspoon full of scotch. carbonation is engaging, it ushers the lovestruck sweet and bitter flavor elements--theyre all over each other, with that avuncular scotch effect in full accord. while i never cry at these fabulous gastronomic marriages, i do give a maudlin sigh that it couldnt go on forever.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 18, 2002
Deep red color; head had lots of little craters and was dense; bready aroma. Mild sweet malt accents. Very Nice. Round and mild. Almost scotch-like at its warmest. Beautiful session beer.

VA Homebrewer (525) - Portsmouth, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2002
A well balanced and pleasant reddish ale. Hops are strong, but the malts are up to the challenge. Nice caramel and toffee flavors followed by an astringent hop flavor. Finish is lightly bitter. Aromas are of earthy and grapefruity hops combined with caramel malts. Nice deep red color with a minimal head. Well made APA.

Nothing special about this beer, pretty average but drinkable.

scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2002
This ale is perfectly balanced between the flavor of hops and malt. The hops are very similar to the type used in American pale ales. The malt has an outstanding caramel flavor. Hop bittering and flavor prevail in the finish.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2002
Deeply unimpressed. Pours reddish-orange, with a good firm head that had some staying power. Nice nose, lots of cola and caramel with noticeable yeastiness and hops. Initial taste is very sweet and the finish doesnt diminish the sweetness. Get flavors of cream soda/root beer, but the malts are oversweet and overpower any balancing hoppiness. Finish starts creamy, but gets watery rather quickly.

Great hop flavor and aroma. Very fruity and a litle carmel flavor. Great beer.
