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.

Currently 79p a bottle at B&M bargains, which is where I bought four bottles. This rating is based on 2x355ml bottles poured into a "Bubba Gump" lager glass Definitely amber coloured, with a dense off-white head. Aroma is caramel and mildly acidic red fruit. Malt to the fore, with flavours of a good quality fruit and nut fudge, but not oversweet. The American hops provide a lovely floral astringency to balance the maltiness. Juicy mouth feel, long bittersweet finish. What a surprisingly nice beer.

wimpyjoe (3793) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle from Booths, Media City UK. Amber with a thin head. Quite sweet but very palatable. Has a bit of action in the palate and bridges the gap between ale and lager.

Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is woody resin hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a woody resin light metallic hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

ajnepple (2127) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - MAR 23, 2014
On tap at The Pearl (Muscatine). Brown/black with no head, literally nothing, couldn’t stir up a head. Aroma and flavor of dark sweet malts, light caramel and chocolate. Not much else going on. Pass.

Mothroy (79) - - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. More of an ale than lager. Deep golden colour with honeyed aroma and a sweetish, well-rounded malty flavour. Pleasant but unspectacular.

maeib (8682) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Bottled 16/02/14. A copper coloured beer with a white bubbly head. A toasty lager. Interesting malts and reasonably well balanced hops. Edging towards sweetness. Has a chewy body but it’s totally decent.

355ml bottle. Pours a copper colour with little head, pleasant sweet aroma with a malt sweet taste, not much hop bitterness though which I believe this beer is missing, that bit of bite which would make it more enjoyable.
