Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear slightly bubbly orange with a small white head. Nicely balanced aroma and flavour of malt and light hops. I don’t like most Lagers and when I do they tend to be Vienna style and this one doesn’t dissapoint -- this is very enjoyable!

Bottle shared with blankboy, tupalev & HogTownHarry - courtesy of tupalev. Nice orange-amber colour with a moderate white head. Both aroma and flavour have a good malt/hop balance, with some honey notes in the finish. Nothing outstanding or unique here, just a solid take on the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared with GregClow, Hogtown Harry, and Blankboy. Orange pour, small white head. Decent aroma - malt and English hops. Nice malt taste you would expect from a Vienna, with some additional light hops. Sort of sweet, which lingers. A very nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (12oz). Poured clear amber-gold with a decent white head. Aroma slightly vegetal, but mostly a pleasant mild blend of light roast malt, dry hops and generic (non-corn) grain. Taste is pretty lively, sharp, I can taste the hops (orange juice, fairly fresh) and malt! Very nice toasty lager - and I usually hate lagers. Refreshing.

Deep amber colored with a medium sized white head. Sweet aroma of toasted bread with a hint of bubblegum. Flavor is nutty and toasty, with a pretty decent hops presence that wasn’t immediately apparent in the nose. Well balanced and highly drinkable.

Amber body with a frothy white head. As expected, some toasted malt is present in the aroma along with some light hops. Some lighlty sweet malts initially followed by a dry toasty character and a touch of hops in the finish.

GABF ’05. Clear golden body, white head. Esters, butter, flowers and strawberries in the aroma. This is a lager? Butter caramel malt flavor with pilsenerish hops at the end.

Orange amber color with a small white soapy ring. The aroma is very lightly roasted malt. Just enough to get that "toasty" aroma without anything heavier emparted. The flavor is more balanced with the hop character shining through. A very nice, drinkable beer. I am enjoying Blue Point immensely.
