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.

"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."

Sat July 10, 2010 Draught at Pizzeria Paradiso, courtesy of RJ and Darian, thank you sirs! Bright amber color, off white head, great lacing. Aroma of caramel and light spice. Taste is white pepper and malt. Nice.

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

Bouteille 12oz. De couleur cuivrée-brune et claire. Nez malté de caramel légèrement rôti, moyen de houblon floral aux notes citriques et résineuses avec des traces de chocolat. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement résineuse et aux notes crémeuses. Goût léger-moyen amer de houblon citrique aux notes résineuses (présent en arrière-goût toute la gorgée) avec des notes fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel sucré légèrement rôti ainsi qu’un léger goût de pain grillé puis en finale, l’amertume de houblon se veut légèrement plus résineuse et herbeuse en plus d’être accompagné de traces de chocolat et de noix. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, moyen-léger amer de houblon légèrement citrique, résineux et herbeux. (2006)

Pours ruby red from bottle. Amazing aroma..big hops and. sugars. Aroma does this beers justice, flavir is mice but loses something in way if hops a sweet malts.

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
