COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Honey Light beer is truly a unique light beer. We brewed it with only the choicest Cascade hops, a blend of select barley malt, 2-row pilsner and red wheat malts, and real Wisconsin honey.

Somewhat better than the regular Point light, with more aroma notes of citrus, some honey, hops, and a much more pale malty flavor.

Bottle- from sampler pack. VERY light in color. Bland. Hardly any flavor at all. Does have a slight honey taste, but this beer isn’t really much better than a typical mass market beer.

It was a pretty decent beer. However, like the other beers from point, it is a little too tame. I enjoyed the honey taste and the aftertaste is decent.

Bottled. Very strong notes of honey on the nose, mild honey and malts on the finish. Too sweet for my tastes, but I’ve used it in beer bread recipes with notable success.

From a 12 oz. twist cap long neck brown bottle with no bottled/freshness date. Poured a pale yellowish with a foamy white head, good carbonation. Aromas of grain husks, a touch of honey and sweet pale malts. For a light beer, a decent light bodied mouthfeel, not overly watery or thin, a smooth drinker. Light taste of honey, citrus fruity from the hops who have a barely noticeable bitterness, the malts are sweet and clean and a dry sweet malty with a hint of grain finish. For a light beer, this wasn’t too bad, very drinkable, a good beer to have during the current summer heat wave.

I decided to have a quick beer before dinner and a night out at bars so I went with one that I knew wouldn’t spoil my appetite for food or drink. I wisely grabbed a Point Honey Light out of the fridge for my "snack". This was a decent Wisconsin beer for its price (read: very affordable). It poured a very pale yellow, with a slight greenish tinge when held against various lights. Admittedly, that gave me cause for concern. The first whiff smelled sweet and malty. The taste was more sweetness, this time I definitely notice the honey. Tastes like a cheap lager with some sugary adjuncts thrown in. This beer makes me bipolar; one sip is very good and the next is subpar. I really can’t get a handle on how I feel about it. I probably wouldn’t recommend it to others, since you can get Leinie’s anywhere here in Wisconsin for the same price and imo better quality. This beer would make a very good beer to enjoy while grilling in the backyard.

Not one of Point breweries better efforts in my opinion. The flavor you would expect from a Point beer is just not there.

Pours a medium golden yellow color. Aromas of corn, hops, and a touch of sweetness. Flavors is typical lager with a hint of sweetness. Doesn’t really do anything for the beer.

In the bottle. Pour is absolutely beautiful- benchmark gold with a pillowy white (gleamingly white) head. Aroma is a subtle honey, but not much else. Flavor is mundane. Has some slight honey sweetness, but overall the body is mild and watery and hops are nearly non-existent. Smooth, and easy to quaff.
