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.

frankenkitty (2006) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2005
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 thereís a slight bitter lift at the end. Overall watery and weak. Another Point you can forget about.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 25, 2005
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.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2005
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. Youíve been warned.

JK (5806) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 26, 2005
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.

twindadplus2 (677) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Pours reddish amber with a small white head that doesnít 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.

JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JUN 4, 2005
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.

Gmku (300) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2005
As good an American amber as Iíve 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 Iíve 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. Itís a clear medium amber with a sizable eggshell head that never completely disappears. Iíve 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.

darkstar (69) - Eureka, Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Pours a decent initial but quickly diminishing tan head. Nice red appearance. Malts overpower the hops. Nice initial taste before it just goes flat. Wonít buy it again.
