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.

12 oz bottle: soggy malted aroma, light orangey colour…crisp flavour on a wet palate: bits of hops, orange juice, toasted malts, and grain. Another surprise from Point – these folks make decent, drinkable beer…

Another really good beer to come out of the point brewery. Slightly malty taste, very smooth.

GLBF bottle sample: Reddish brown, thin, watery. Smoket caramel nose, sour suggestions. Taste is thin, although the malts are roasty and caramelly in their thinness. Quite watery at the finish.

Clear, caramel coloration, a dark amber, with a nice, thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is, wel, too sweet and malty, with little balance, and an adjuct-y flintiness. Too much like the unpleasant swill smell I’ve tried to avoid throughout my beer drinking career. Slight hops and mineraly-ness, but it falls flat, and lays there like a stinker. Taste? there’s a malty feel, a caramel tone that swims around the palate, but it leaves as quick as it comes. Light body, short finish, little texture, too much carbonation at the front. Hollow, listless...a trace amount of flavor trickles back and flits down the throat, but it’s not a terribly happy sensation. This one’s definitely for the lower rung, and will impress only those with small reserves of taste and infinite tolerance for blandness.

2004 Autumn Brew Review: Brown Coloring. Some Malts and Hops. Not Great for the Style

Autumn Brew Review 2004. Dark brown color. Slight malt aroma and taste. A touch of hops. Not bad, but much better Viennas out there.

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

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2004
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.
