3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear copperish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, light roast, and grains. Tastes of toasted malts and grains, There was something else in the flavor I just can’t put my finger on - almost a sweet, vanillish something. Thinner body.

I thought this was a nice effort. It has some really nice copper looks with a nice firm head. The nose had a nicely tamed aroma of malt. It had a fair amount of bitterness that blended out to a nice smooth palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light beige head about 1 cm thick. Good carbonation. Light roasty aroma with some bready malts, vanilla and a touch of hops. Color is a orange amber. Light and crisp flavor. More tasted graisn, and more of a hops presence. Good balance between the hops and the roastyness. Finished with a little bit of alcohol presence which I am quite surprised at with only 4.8% abv. Lingering malty sweetness and a hint of hops bitterness. This is a pretty good brew and s pretty good representation of the style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper brown, pleasant nutty, malty nose. Very mild hopping, sweet palate, bordering on cloying. Nice, malt driven beer, but perhaps a bit too sweet to really enjoy in any kind of volume.

Blue Point was on point for this delicious beer. Pour was a dark amber/burnt orange with no head. Aroma was of malt and not much else. Taste was sweet malt with little carbonation but had some hops flirting in an out as well. This would be a good "hot day" beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This lager pours a cloudy amber color, but settles clear, topped off by a creamy, small light-brown head. Fair lacing behind a fully diminishing head. Aroma is of light grain malts with straw notes. Amber noted a sweet, inviting aroma. Initial taste was moderately sweet, easing to a light sweet finish with average duration. Light to medium on the palate, it leaves us dry with soft carbonation. Overall, it was a drinkable beer, not a favorite but tasty.
