1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle poured a clear pale yellow with a white head. Aromas of bread, sweet malt, and a touch of citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and faint citrus with a sweet finish.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2005 <font size=+1>Point Honey Light
<font size=-2>Frankenkitty’s first RateBeer poem
<font size=-1>I’d soon be drinking but what was I thinking?
I bought the Point sampler last night.
I tried all the others, some were good, some were mothers...
I proceeded to Point Honey Light.
I sniffed from my glass as I sat on my ass
and found the aroma unpleasant:
Cardboard and, yes... some faint DMS,
But grain and rye came like a present.
Things finally picked up when I sipped a quick sup:
the flavor was right on the money...
Barley and wheat made the background complete
for a beer with a mild hint of honey.
A clinically-clear, bright golden beer
with a fast head and a flat body.
It must have been luck ’cause I thought it would suck
but it actually wasn’t that shoddy.
Thank you... thank you very much. I’ll be here all week.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle-pours pale straw yellow with a sudsy white head. fairly grainy and stale aroma with light sweetness/sugar/honey. flavros show those stale malts tenfold. ugh! the honey tries to combat the staleness with sweetness and it doesnt work. fairly watery palate. mabye i got an old bottle. I would re-rate this beer once i get the chance. all in all, this could be a good lager given the right sample.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale with a very thin white head. Aroma is mild malt and grains. Watery body with lots of carbonation. Flavor is very light grain and malt with a light sour hops finish. The honey was very well hidden and I could only detect faint traces of it occasionally. Reminds of Point special lager in that it isn’t bad at all, it just doesn’t have anything really memorable either.

Poured from the bottle with large bubbles in a light yellow body. The aroam has earthy carrots and grass. The honey is there in the background. The taste is grainy corn and some hay. There is also a small amount of honey.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Could definitely do worse with a light beer. Nice pale yellow with a decent amount of white fizz. Pillsnery with a crisp aftertaste.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Vitamin B urine color, thin white head. If the head maintains itself, it actually doesn’t look that bad. Of course, given the fact that it is beer maybe it does look bad. Anyway... papery hops with some light honey malt. Tastes pretty papery with a touch of sour cascade and pislnery hops. Its a little better than a macro beer.

Light is the key word. Complexity, color, head, all light. Good if you are looking for something else to taste.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Small white head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, sparse lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. Aroma was light-sweet, malty and honey. I did not pick up anything else in the flavor that I did not pick up in the aroma. Tingly mouthfeel. Light body. Nothing special IMO.
