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.

Nephilium (1786) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Slight aroma of caramel, with an edge hops. Pours a clear reddish-amber, with a thin white head. Starts on the sweeter side, hints of roast and caramel, finishes with just a touch of bitterness. Very drinkable, and a well balanced beer.

"for a supposedly british style brewery, this ones pretty stinkin hoppy. looks unassuming, but between the aroma and the taste, this is a highly enjoyable bitter, floral, grapefruity ipa. well done."

Pretty good as far as amber beers go. Very balanced, mildly sweet with a biscuity honey flavor.

This is what I think of when I want a simple go-to beer, body, flavor, and simple lingering.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2011 Great aroma, excellent hop profile, lots of cascade: flavor is not as interesting, lightly sweet malts, light hops

Thorpe429 (5035) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2011
On tap at the brewery in August 2009. Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate amber color with an off white head and a bit of lacing. Nose brings forward some amber and caramel malt with a tiny bit of roasted character as well as some light citrus and floral hops. Taste brings a dry, doughy character along with moderate caramel sweetness. Slight citrus bitterness. Medium body with a bit of dryness. Drinks fairly well, but is somewhat bland. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-13-2010

beerbill (3616) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Mild aroma of malt and really not much else. No hops in the nose at all. The flavor is very malty with a bit of nuts. The malt morphs into a sweet stale malt flavor with some overripe orange. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Not real crazy about this one.

AlephNull3 (114) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Pours a cloudy like brown -reddish hue with light head. Aroma, I cant smell anything. Taste a little watered down, slight hint of the alcohol flavor you get from Imperial IPA(s). Got this beer in a variety case and I have to say so far this is not a good showing for Avery, who makes a delicious I mean breathtaking IPA in the Avery dunga (something like that).
