Clove, banana, alcohol. Good head that lingered. Plenty of aroma that matched the taste. Overall, I would drink it on purpose for the price.

Not particularly good. Copper appearance with a medium head. Toffee, caramel, woodchips, and honey. You would expect some "winter" spices, but they’re not evident.

A nice spicy winter ale. A deep amber wolor with slightly off white head. Not too shabby.

Bottle. Aroma has notes of cereal malts, sassafras, tobacco and cough drop. Dark ruby hue with a white small head that left no lace. Flavor is heavy sweet. Palate is medium bodied and soft. Overall another crappy brew from Point.

Malty. Poorly balanced beer. Malt/hops/yeast did not hide the alochol hotness, despite it being moderate alcohol content.

Sticky, heavy spice beer. Decent but a bit flabby and kind of hard to drink.

I’ve had this at least once a winter over the past three or four years and, of the Pointers I’ve tried, this is the least consistent. Sometimes it’s awful and other times it’s OK. St. Benny struggles to balance the malty sweetness and hoppy bitterness of its ingredients and ends up being thin and half-hearted. The finish is especially confusing

pours a reddish copper colour with a thin head. Aroma is flat malt, honey, plum and toffee. Flavour is not great. Thin body, flavour of fruit and molassess. Some caramel , cheap wine alc tones. I didn’t particularly care for this one.

12oz bottle-pours copper with a light tan head. Aroma is spice, light fruit, some caramel. Taste is spice hops, medium malt-roasty/caramel/cocoa. 1st 6oz a bit thin, 2nd 6oz towards medium body.

clear copper, very still, not much head (only around edges) no lace. Taste is watered down malt and spiced candied fruit. I have usually been underimpressed with offerings fro, The Point, and this is no different. Hardly worth finishing.
