This is...OK, although I’m not a fan. Balanced and nicely hoppy, good aroma. I just couldn’t get myself to drink much.

Mahogany/brown pour with a light head and some lacing. Roast and caramel malts with a small touch of hops. Some lagerish qualities. The flavor mimics the aroma but there is more roast and maltiness. It reminds me of fresh wort. The palate was odd, slightly tangy. I liked it.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
