3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Hints of roasted malts with nips of brown sugar and spice, but all very faint.
Appearance: Clear amber with a rich, tan head.
Taste: Medium sweetness straight through.
Palate: Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, spicy finish.
Overall: Meh...itís a nice spiced beer, but Iím not particularly caught off guard or blown away. Still, itís drinkable.

Pours clear, red-copper with a soft, light tan head.
Scent is toffee....spices....
Taste is clove, bready malt, cola.....banana.
Not a bad beer at all, though a little on the sweet side...
An easy drinker....tasty

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 theyíre 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.

Iíve had this at least once a winter over the past three or four years and, of the Pointers Iíve tried, this is the least consistent. Sometimes itís awful and other times itís 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 didnít particularly care for this one.
