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

Ahh, yes. Point Brewery’s first true premium beer. I believe that this brewery (much like Lake Front Brewery) can not make a bad beer.

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.

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.

This beer did not have a very big head, but had a nice amber color. I enjoyed the flavor of this beer very much. It had a nice smooth flavor.

Surely, not the greatest amber beer I’ve ever had. The taste was thin and not full-bodied. Leinenkugel Red is far superior. Cheers !!!!

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

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2006 RERATE 1/22/06: I finally got to pour some of this into a glass and have a look at it. It’s a clear medium amber with a sizable eggshell head that never completely disappears. I’ve upgraded the palate rating as well because this beer is really smooth with a very good level of carbonation. Once the beer warmed a little in the glass, some of the tastes became more pronounced and I was able to appreciate the depth. Nice malty backbone with a good sprinkling of hops in the finish. Great beer for the price--and a great beer period.
I had to dig six big holes to plant trees in our backyard yesterday. I needed a good, inexpensive "working beer" to keep myself on task. This was an excellent choice. Pours a clear reddish amber with a smallish off-white head. Surprisingly rich malty aroma. Roasty malt initial taste with a followup of mild hops. Not really complex but quite tasty nonetheless. Slightly fizzy, which was a plus yesterday as I toiled away in the hot sun. Very good, especially considering the price. This will become my regular yardwork beer from now on.
