2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I bought a 12pk sampler of Stevens Point Beer for $11.99 from Woodmanís in Janesville, WI in Spring 2011.
Pours a dark copper color with a slight fluffy head. Scent is mostly that of grains and sweet malts. Taste is slightly heavier than I expected. Toasted malts and sweet malts clash together to ignite the taste buds. Overall has a sweet, refreshing taste that is very drinkable. A great everyday kind of beer.

Copper-amber pour into thin frothy beige head that quickly dissipates into a ring of melting lacing to a pool for swirling foam in the center of the glass. Aroma of yeasty biscuit, caramel malt, and lightly toasted walnuts. Initial flavor of sweet citrus, toasty biscuit, malty caramel that fades into a bitter grassy hops and a nutty finish.

An amber-red pour with a small off-white head. It has a light bread aroma with a hint of grassy hops. The light body has a smooth texture with lively carbonation. The taste is mild sweet and malty.

This is just an amber color pale lager to me. Very little of anything, certainly no hops. Boring and untasty.

The aroma is nothing special but does have nice caramel notes as well as some hops to balance. It also seems a tad nutty. The appearance is amber with an average head for the style. The taste is like the aroma and right on for the style. The palate is smooth. Overall a better than average beer but an unremarkable amber.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown-red color with foamy white head. Not very fragrant...some grassy hops and a bit of malt. Mild sweet, grainy malt flavor. Notes of molasses, caramel & grassy hops. Easy drinking, good taste but nothing great. I canít find a date on this bottle but suspect itís nearly a year old so Iíd like to taste a fresh bottle.

12oz can, purchased from Dutchís for $1.25. Deep, clear maroon color, thick khaki head. I just had the Point Pale Ale, and the first thing I noticed about this brew is that itís a bit more carbonated in comparison - a shame, because I thought the carbonation on the Pale Ale was very satisfactory. This one has notably less aroma, a mild nutty, but oddly rich malt with a light body. Light umami taste. Not bad at all, but Iím glad this isnít a six-pack.

12 ounce bottle shared by maniac at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11. Pours a clear amber-copper color with a medium creamy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of tart fruity notes and faint caramel malts. The taste is caramel, faint fruity notes and a bit of butter. Medium bodied.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very light aroma. Nothing much to speak of. But pours beautifully, with 3 finger head. Forward taste is nice round caramel roasted malt. Mid-palate is great hop counterpoint. Well balanced and well constructed beer. Besides lacking aroma there isnít much bad to say about this. The palate gets better for last half of glass, when larger carbonation bubbles are gone. Would gladly drink another.

A little disappointed judging from some of the other beers Iíve had from this brewer. A very week aroma of mostly bread from an amber pour with red tints. the flavor is malty sweet, fairly well balanced. A good solid beer, not great.
