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.

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

Love it! Smooth flavor with smooth finish. Everything I except an amber to be.

Pours a clear deep amber color with off-white head. Caramel malt, some toffee, and a bit of roast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some nice maltiness. A very good example of the style.

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 !!!!

Currently 79p a bottle at B&M bargains, which is where I bought four bottles. This rating is based on 2x355ml bottles poured into a "Bubba Gump" lager glass Definitely amber coloured, with a dense off-white head. Aroma is caramel and mildly acidic red fruit. Malt to the fore, with flavours of a good quality fruit and nut fudge, but not oversweet. The American hops provide a lovely floral astringency to balance the maltiness. Juicy mouth feel, long bittersweet finish. What a surprisingly nice beer.
