3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Actually one of Point’s better efforts. Poured at a good temperature with a large foamy, fizzy, light tan head that soon settled to a large island and ring with a bit of lace. Color is a clear orange red mahoganey with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is immediately bubble gum, then fruit, malt, caramel. Flavor is like nose with sweet on top then bitter and tang. Not a lot going on. Body is a tad thin and carbonation fizzy. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, and lelt me thinking: I know they can do it if they want. The question is, why don’t they?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber color out of the bottle with a thin khaki colored head. Big sweet nose with some puffed wheat and spice notes. Caramel and toffee with puffed wheat, banana, some spice and dark fruit flavors. A little thin in the palate. Not remarkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Land O Lakes World of Beer. Pours a nearly clear rich amber color with a small white head. Minimal lacing with a small residual island of head remaining in the middle of the glass. Aroma has has a number of dunkleweizen notes to it with banana and clove present along with some sweet caramel malt. Flavor is more sweet with caramel malt sweetness to it. Decent winter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild roasted malt aroma, pours a clear dark amber with a off-white head. Mild malt flavor, with a touch of roast and toffee, very quick finish with just a touch of roast. Thin bodied, very little going on, not bad, just not very good either.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reddish amber. Small white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma of yeast and spices (nutmeg and clove maybe), perhaps wheat and banana. Light to medium body, less watery than other Point beers Ive had. Very abrupt finish. Flavor matches aroma but with less impact.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy red/orange color with a little and quickly dissolving head. There is a slight scent of malts and some spices but nothing that sticks out too much. Taste is rather strong and dull. Starts with a nice spice taste but ends with a dry rustic taste. Texture is a little watery as well. After a few sips you get used to the taste but still has many flaws. Slightly disappointed but this one. I hope the other 5 beers are better than this. Sam Adams Winter Lager is by far a better tasting winter warmer than this.
