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.

Gmku (296) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 25, 2005
As good an American amber as Ive had from most brewers. Bready in aroma and flavor with a subdued hop finish. A little like an alt. Not terribly complex, but very tasty and drinkable. Nice surprise from this brewer, especially w/ the very affordable under-6-bucks price tag. "Point well taken, Stevens Point!"

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2005
A pleasant surprise from a brewery whose products Ive seen for the past 15 years and only now have actually sampled any. Color is very dark amber bordering on brown, with a tall head that disappears and slightly disappoints later on. Aroma is rather complex though, showing elements such as breadiness, leather/tannins (in a positive sense) and cinnamon. Flavor is a unique combination of sharp malts mashed together at a strong hoppy finish; not much more in the way of complexity but very forthright. A strong, solid beer overall.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 RERATE 1/22/06: I finally got to pour some of this into a glass and have a look at it. Its a clear medium amber with a sizable eggshell head that never completely disappears. Ive upgraded the palate rating as well because this beer is really smooth with a very good level of carbonation. Once the beer warmed a little in the glass, some of the tastes became more pronounced and I was able to appreciate the depth. Nice malty backbone with a good sprinkling of hops in the finish. Great beer for the price--and a great beer period. ORIGINAL RATING: I had to dig six big holes to plant trees in our backyard yesterday. I needed a good, inexpensive "working beer" to keep myself on task. This was an excellent choice. Pours a clear reddish amber with a smallish off-white head. Surprisingly rich malty aroma. Roasty malt initial taste with a followup of mild hops. Not really complex but quite tasty nonetheless. Slightly fizzy, which was a plus yesterday as I toiled away in the hot sun. Very good, especially considering the price. This will become my regular yardwork beer from now on.

Pours a decent initial but quickly diminishing tan head. Nice red appearance. Malts overpower the hops. Nice initial taste before it just goes flat. Wont buy it again.

jgentgesdo (682) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Pours clear, beautiful amber with a medium light tan head that quickly diminishes and leaves good lacing. Nose is fresh and sweet, with hints of apple, malt, and cream. The immediate flavor is rather muted, but improves as it warms to a sweet, slightly acrid flavor with good malts and obvious Cascade hops, as well as creamy caramels and a very slightly smoky finish. All the flavors are pretty weak, though, and overall I probably wont buy again.

Not bad as an amber. Not too heavy, not much head. Not my first pick, but I would not turn it away. A lot of "nots" involved with this beer.

Not bad, but nothing really to write about. golden pour, weak caramel notes, tiny hop presence in the taste to go along with the malts.

hotstuff (4424) - Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Bottle. Poured a medium off-white head that was smooth and mostly diminished. Fair lacing, fine-medium sized bubbles, transparent, minimal carbonation, and an orange brown hue. Malty and sweet aroma. Very faint. Flavor was malty and some caramel. Overall, boring and unexciting. Smooth palate. A so-so brew.

Braudog (6048) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Poured bright red with a head that ran away like Carl Williams. Not much of an aroma, maybe light malt. The flavor is average caramel fare with a bit of breadiness. Its an OK average brew.

Terminus (3382) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2005
bottle-purchased at woodmans in Rockford, IL pours a mahogony hue with small white head. citric hop aroma-some bready malts, but kinda smells artificial, like sam adams lager. Metallic hops, slight vanilla characteristic. short finish. Noble hops are present in the finish. Not to bad for a mass produced lager from WI.
