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.

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

Not much head, malty strawberry aroma. Light bodied and well balanced, with some citrus flavors. Another Point well made.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2003 Holy crap. This one is a bit strange on the senses. Pours an amber color, which was expected, but here's where it gets weird (and when the going gets weird, the weird go pro). Smells like malts and, oddly enough, boiled potatoes. Flavor is of cereal malts and pears (yes, pears). Honestly, i don't know what to think. I just took another drink, and that is DEFINITELY pears. It's not that I don't like it, it's just that it's a little odd. good enough, I suppose, but odd. Re-rate: next drink: Maybe it's not pears alone, so much as it's pears AND apple cores. Why is nobody else noticing these odd details?

Brown in color. Thick billowy tan head. Not much lace. Tiny bubble, good carbonation. Very good hop, malt mix,tart, semi dry. Kind of blah at the end.

One of my favorites from Stevens Point Brewery. A caramel colored pour with small head. Sweet taste with pleasent aftertaste. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for a everday beer.
