ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 22, 2012
On tap in Stevens Point. On a business trip out here, and I’ve gotta say, its a little scary how proud they are of this brewer. There are displays and ads everywhere, including a big display at the airport. The hotel where we stayed had a gift shop that sold almost exclusively Point Brewing merchandise. Anyway, the beer was OK. Drinkable, decent taste, but something was off about the palate.

Darker than ’normal’ lager. Small white head. Pure malt flavoured. There is a flavour at back of tongue that I can’t quite place but which adds plenty to this beer. Very nice with a slight and unexpected bitter finish.

Clear copper with a large slightly off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very sweet and slightly floral aroma. Plenty of malt flavours, quite sweet, a little floral, slightly earthy. Decent, not outstanding.

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from a B&M Bargains. Pale amber in colour with a short-lived, off-white, head. Slightly tired cereal malts, grassy, bittering, hops and a yeasty finish. Ok.

Garrold (1337) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. A gift from Button. I’m beginning to think he doesn’t think too much of me. Clear, copper colour. Filmy, white head. Sweet, fruity hop. Hint of biscuit malt. Taste is sugary, then dry. Thin palate. Dry on the finish.

Benzai (8234) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Sampled @ ChrisO after GBBF day 2. Clear golden to light amber color, small off-white head. Smell and taste malts, quite bitter, lightly a sweetish grainy touch.

AlbionOakley (31) - Poulton, Lancashire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Copper coloured with little head, lovely body and not over carbonated. This is actually a lovely smooth lager with a full flavour

yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2014
12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden amber to orange with a small off white head. Bitter, light fruity and ligt herbal. Bitter, dry and hoppy into the finish.

McTapps (4100) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose in East Cowes. Pours out in a light amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of barley and light malt. Taste of old malt, light barley, mild hops, old bread and sour berries. Just a very unpleasant and untasty mixture. Unbalanced. Not that bad, but quite awful stuff.

MichaelAwesome (4100) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014
Botle shared with McTapps. Highly drinkable piwo with a nice viena nose of nuts, caramel, bit of sugar and bread. Quaffy and mild with a bit of herbs in the aftertaste. Syrup finishing it off. Good and classic brew without being rocket science.
