Surely, not the greatest amber beer I’ve ever had. The taste was thin and not full-bodied. Leinenkugel Red is far superior. Cheers !!!!

This beer did not have a very big head, but had a nice amber color. I enjoyed the flavor of this beer very much. It had a nice smooth flavor.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The bottle poured a sparkling dark amber beverage, lightly carbonated. It had an average size tan fizzy head that didn’t last long but left a little lacing on the glass. The aroma was quite fruity with the primary aroma of banana and lesser notes of dried plum and grape in the background. In addition I detected a hint of bread and caramel in the background. The body was medium-light with light carbonation and a smooth texture. The Flavor starts off sweet and fruity. As it matures caramel comes to the front and the finish is long and smooth with some alcohol warmth.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fizzy malt based beverage. Copper/caramel color. Tasted vaguely sweet with some muted toffee flavors. Considerably bubbly. Overall it’s pretty average. Something to drink without realizing that you’re actually drinking something.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A crystal clear caramel/amber body with lively effervescence... a surgically-clean appearance topped by a methodically fading off-white head. Light caramel and mustiness in aroma with weak nuttiness and a hint of diacetyl. Mildly-malted flavor is semi-sweet, but there’s a slight bitter lift at the end. Overall watery and weak. Another Point you can forget about.

Sampled from bottle. Pours an orange-amber with a creamy white head and lacing that marks each sip. Aroma is toasted malts and is quite mild and clean. Flavor is well-balanced and is dominated by European malts. Finishes dry and clean. Light to medium-bodied, moderately carbonated and creamy. Brewed to style. A good lager.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear copper brown in color with an aroma of hazelnuts, maple sugar, rye and sourdough bread. Light, acidic macro splendor in every sense. Watery corn syrup and grape nuts juxtapose an extract comprised from a handful of bargain nuts. Weak. Lacks body. You’ve been warned.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
A thin, watery beer with little aroma. The color is red/brown. Flavor of very light malt. Not much flavor. Very light palte. In line with a low quality Vienna such as Dos Equis.

Pours reddish amber with a small white head that doesn’t hang around. Aroma is sweet malt and a touch of bread. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Flavor is malty sweet with a hint of roasted malt and caramel and a strong hops finish. Another pleasant surprise from Point. I may have to sample a few of their other brews.

A decent Amber. Poured a nice amber with a thin layer of white head the stayed till the end. Pretty simple flavor, although there are some hops that peek through after the malts hit. Slightly acidic. Smooth palate. Wisconsin macros dont get much better.
