2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a medium size diminishing white head. The aroma was sweet caramel malts with some grass and citrus notes as well. The flavor is essentially all malts, sweet caramel, with artificial tasting vanilla present as well. Not much in the way of hops. Syrupy yet the mouthfeel is rather light. Drinkable, but nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma’s a bit faint, sweet malt with a bit of graininess to it. Smooth and tasting of sweet caramel, dark toffee, and a light earthy/nutty bitterness, this amber/copper beer is a satisfying if unexciting drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased several cases (cans) for our company picnic. Pours a clear carmale amber brew with an average sized off-white head that quickly dissolves to an almost clean with a fine film . Aroma of roasted multi-grainy caramel malt, some citrus zest and a touch of sour apple. Taste is highly carbonated, medium bodied with multi-grain dough and some light citrus peel flavors. Finish is dry, slightly musty with a faint pecan flavor in the aftertaste.

bottle thanks to alexsdad. A clean golden amber pour. A nose of malt and light paper. A flavor that is sweet malt and a sourish bitter on the finish. A bit over carbonated and a tad thin but a good drinker.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium orange colored body with a thick white head. The aroma is potatoes with some green bell peppers and a hin of caramel. The taste is light caramel with some light carrots. A nice subtle vienna lager. This could be a good session beer.

I'm not really a lager kind of guy, more porter and stout, but this one was okay. A little sweet, definite hops. Not too shabby.

12 ounce bottle from the Woodmans on Gammon Road, Madison WI (December 2006), served out of the fridge into a Unibroue glass. The big fluffy off-white head is huge-bubbled and fades very quickly atop the very clear dark amber body....excessively sweet, honey’d syrupy peaches batter you in the nose with very faint citric acidic notes showing up to no avail..... the body is awfully, awfully sweet as well, loads of caramel, butterscotch and vanilla which might be fun in a barley wine, but here they are not supported by enough of a malt base and there is virtually no hop presence....slick and syrupy all the way through; I suspect this was better before Point took it over. In any case, I find it barely drinkable now.
