Pellucid bronze with some white sticky head & some lacing. The aroma is good, some spicy caramel & cinnamon with light hops, good malt complex body. The flavor is very balanced with lots of malt & only a touch of sweetness & bitterness in the tail. Very malty amber, good.Thanks Falconseye!

As I walked though the terminal at Central Wisconsin Airport in Wausau, WI, I saw a case displaying this beer among a few others. I realized than that this beer is the local micro that they are proud of. I went straight to the factory I was visiting, went through some product lines and the host took me and my coworkers to a room called the "Oak Room".....it was a large conference room with TV’s, everything automated. The host walked over to a bar they had set up with a fridge full of point and Leinie beers. They served us cold beer right there, it was the coolest supplier I have ever visited.....a full bar full of liquor and micros. Anyways, this is where I tried Point Amber.....a very good treat it was. Distinctive, not too floral of a hop medley with a solid, slightly sweet malt backbone, some nuttiness towards the back.....not bad.

Dark red appearance, with a pleasent nose of sweet apples and malts with a light hop note as well. A regular, slightly pale and earthy flavor, with a good body. Can’t say much... a good summer beer for some porch-sittin’

Had this one in a bottle in Stevens Point Wisconsin. Had a strange note of something early on, but settled down into a rich sweet taste.

Pours from the bottle with very little head. The body is a dark amber. Aroma is corn and honey. The taste is sweet with caramel and some bananas. Nothing special, but not bad.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2004 Copper colored beer with a white, quicly dissipating head. Light malty aroma. Malty in flavor with just a touch of hops and a fairly dry finish. A hint of peppery flavor(as in Schilling's black pepper, not spiciness). Very drinkable. Reminds me of a Killians, only more balanced(not as sweet) and cleaner tasting. A good bargain priced amber lager. Will not offend most macro lovers.

clear, head is white and about 3/4" thick intitially...mostly not lasting. aroma is pretty much malts and more malts. flavor is a little fruity and the beer in my opinion has pretty light hopping. has almost a corn flavor to it even though it's 100% barley. not at all impressed.

Nice balance of malts and hops... almost like an APA light. A little better than I expected... pretty good.

I thought from the way that it looked and smelled that this was going to be an awesome beer, but it wasn't as good as I thought that it was going to be. Beautiful amber color and very inviting smell, but the taste just wasn't there.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2003 This is a very nice Amber. No distinctive flavoring. Didn't overpower. Drinkable on a hot weather day or just want a smooth drinkable beer. If that is your criterion then this is the one. 2nd Amber Classic was much better than the first. That's why I'm giving it a higher rating
