COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
A hand-crafted 100% barley malt lager, Point Classic Amber features a combination of Cluster, Cascade, Hallertauer and Tettnanger hops for a balanced and distinctive flavor. These ingredients, combined with a longer brewing and aging process, give Point Classic Amber a superior flavor and rich, amber color.

Beer is nice & clear and well (but not overly) carbonated. Has a nice, malty aroma. Color is more akin to a light brown ale, perhaps a bit too dark for an Amber. Flavor profile similar to a classic American Brown as well except it finishes dryer and cleaner as most lagers do. To me, lagering takes away from what might be a nice beer here, all complexity gone with that standard, smooth finish of a lager. To me, a smooth finish isnít always desireable. But, Iím sitting in an airport waiting for a plane, so itíll do....

cheap (3975) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 12 oz brown bottle with a twist off cap. Popping the lid yields a yeasty beer aroma. It is darker than a yellow american beer and there is a froth on top. Pour reveals a dark cream soda appearance. There is no head except a ring around the side of the glass. Taste is medium strong with more malt than hops. An alcohol bite seems apparent. Good smooth carbonation which is almost creamy on the back of the tongue. Seems to be enjoyable and not too offensive, lacking excessive personality. Not quite as good as Dos Equis XX Amber but much better than Great Lakes Eliot Ness, Schell FireBrick, Saranac & Adirondack Amber. Finish is a little alky and there is a taste that lingers shortly which it is medium bitter.

Although this beer claims to be "Hand Crafted", it reminds me of stale Budweiser.

DocLock (7743) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2006
Pours deep coppery with an attractive 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, brown sugar, slight hops, some honey, and some cabernet and almonds. Tastes caramel malty up front, not too sweet, with some nutty and vinous fruit notes and some backup hops. Iíd call this one good but not great.

A pretty average beer. Pours a nice deep copper color with faint white head. The aroma was pretty light. Could not detect much except very faint malts. Flavor was a little better. I could taste some malts and mild hops. Actually it is pretty tasty. Seems like an all around good drinker.

Bottle from sampler pack. So-so. Not very flavorfu, but clean tasting. Slightly more flavorful than mass market beers.

tennisjoel (1161) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Copper colored. Poured from a bottle. Head thins out quickly. Light caramel aroma. Easy drinking beer, somewhat thin, but somewhat expected given the style. Faint hops detected beneath the stronger malt backbone. Okay but nothing that floats my boat.

Went to Wisconsin an bought this beer. Remind me not to by beer by just the appearance of the label. Aroma was weak malty, slightly musty. Coppery red in color with a medium head. Light lifeless, unassuming flavor. No real flavor here, although my S.O. likes this beer. Not quite a drain pour. Could pass for soda. Sadly uneventful. I want another beer. Just not this beer.
