Picked this up in a variety 12 pack. Very yellow with a quickly burning off head. Good flavor can barely taste the honey but has a good hopsy aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear, very light golden pale yellwo brew with a big bubbly foam head. Very good lacing. Aroma of multi-grain malt, sweet honey and some grassy hops. Taste is smooth, bread doughy, and a good balance of sweet and malt. Finish is clean, sweet and a hint of bitterness. Pretty good for a honey light lager.

This is the first honey based beer I actually really like, and the first light beer I really like. Although I don’t think it’s actually a "light" beer at 125 calories compared to 96 for other "lights". The alcohol kick seems to be unknown at this time.
I’m not much of a honey eater. After all, honey is nothing more than bee puke (well....it is!) And most honey based brews are either waaayyy too sweet or taste like wet cardboard. This one is guilty of neither.
It pours to be average looking with a nice thickly sweet nose and bright white head. It has a honey sweetness, but like I said, it’s not overly sweet. It has a nice hoppy finish with a spicy aftertaste. I don’t like honey, and I don’t like light beers. But damn, I really like this, and I will be buying it again. Although I do think it is overpriced.

I fully expected to hate this beer, but was pleasantly surprised. This is possibly the best pale lager I’ve had. Pours clear pale yellow with a bone white medium density head. The aroma had clean pale malt with a touch of sweetness. Medium / thin body that is a bit watery with some semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with grainy pale malt, a bit of honey sweetness smoothing things out and light spice. The finish has spicy hops and light smoothness. My first thumbs up for a pale lager because for the price and style this is a fine buy.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2007 12oz bottle-A very light golden body with a small head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma of sweetness and grains. Taste of honey and a little malt. Not a bad light beer but would probably taste better on a hot day.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Point Honey Light, 12 oz brown bottle with a twist off cap. Twist off the lid and you get a slight aroma of honey along with the regular yeasty beery smells. The aroma is perhaps a little more yeasty than usual. Pour it into a glass and you get the ubiquitous pale yellow american beer color. The head is a froth of white. There are many bubbles rising from within, very nice random streaming. The initial flavor impact is that of your typical mild lager, friendly and well behaved. I do not taste much honey sweetness in there if any. Carbonation is above average in a good way. Cannot really detect any negative attributes about this beer. With this beer you have the opposite of oppression, pellucid propinquity. So many big beers get in your face, this one just plain wants to get along with you. Easy to drink and repeatable as refreshment. It seems the alky content is either well hidden or just plain low, who knows when it is not listed on the bottle or on the site? Even after drinking half the glass, the streaming continues within and the carbonation is still present. With many other beers the carbonation fades as you near the bottom of the glass. Undoubtedly this beer is filiopietistic in the way it follows the pale yellow american lager style. The finish lacks any bitter linger and is very enjoyable at that. Not as good as Schmidts, Carlsberg or Miller Lite, but pretty good stuff. Much better than heinie light and yuengling light.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured a clear bright golden with a bunch of rising carbonation and a dusting of white head. Nose picked up sweet honey, grains, and some pale malt... not sure where they were hiding the Cascades from the description?!? .. not bad, though. The flavor picked up sweet honey, pale malts, and grains again with a hint of lemon... highly-carbonated which got in the way of the flavors... dry and refreshing. Most certainly drinkable, but would be better after some manual labor.

This light lager does have a hint of honey in the flavor and it is definitely sweeter than the typical pale. However, finding distinct flavors in this beer takes a more discriminating sampler than me. It is refreshing and well, it is beer.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly to a ring leaving no lace. Chrystal clear amber color. Very light carbonation and light bodied. Honey/hoppy nose. Starts with a sweet honey flavor, some hops at finish but it lacks beef. Would be good on a very hot day - its 29. $1.09 for a 12oz bottle from Chalet Party Goshen, In.

Sweet Aroma plus it looks like ginger ale like all the other Point beers. I can only faintly taste the honey in this one. Goe’s down nice though. Now lets see someone make a stout light.
