COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This great American Pale Ale is hand-crafted with a natural blend of the finest barley malt, Munich, Carapils and Crystal specialty malts, Cascade and Williamette hops and pure water. The taste is clean and complex, with a fruit accent and a dry, hoppy finish.

Had this one on draught in Stevens Point. This is an excellent Pale Ale. Quite bitter and hoppy, aromatic, hints of clove and other spices. Deep brownish red color. This one is a keeper.

This is an excellent pale ale!!! It is crip and hearty. Complex, yet very enjoyable. I think Point Pale Ale is a lot smoother than Sprecher’s version.

I don't care about anybody else's ratings... this is a fine-crafted brew that has a lovely roasted-and-hoppy taste. Barkeep, another, please!

Still a good beer, but would prefer an Amber or a Special over this one.

She looks of an October orangish brown in color and give pretty weak head. Her taste is pure malt with no hint of hops...her finish leaves you high and very dry..solid

Pours a beautiful dark gold color with a huge white head with lots of effervesence. Nose is hops with a hint of citrus. Mouthfeel is full and creamy. Taste is hoppy, but not overly so, and not bitter. A very nice pale ale. Goes well with deli sandwiches and chips.

12 oz bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours copper in colour, pretty good white head. Nicely balanced caramel malt and resiny hops. Good PA.

Great little beer, found it by chance in B&M for 5.4% it is not strong and has a pleasant taste, defiantly a beer I would get again. I tried the bottle version ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Point Brewery is starting to concern me. For a long time, they have been one of my fav. brewers, but their new beers tent to market more to Budweiser drinkers rather then beer drinkers. The Pale Ale is one of their classic brews which is good, so it will probably be gone before long. Their old flavor of Bock is my top-ranked beer. Last year they changed this into a bad seasonal that cost more and was no where near the beer that the old Bock was. The White Bier and Honey light are awesome new beers, but it seems for every good new beer, they kill one of their tried and true brands and replace it with something that is a watered down version of the old product. Hopefully this trend doesn't continue, and I really hope they bring back their old Bock recipie, even of they call it something else (Point Dark).

Pours dark straw colored, going toward a dull copper tone, with a 2-finger eggshell head. Aroma of crisp hops, pale malt, some citrus. Smells like SNPA. The flavor is hoppy and fruity, with some malt notes and citrus at the finish. Gets even crisper as it warms, with that great fruity crisp wet hop note all the way through. This one is very good.
