COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Benedict of Nursia lived in the late 5th to early 6th centuries. Legend has it while living in solitude, he was befriended by a raven that later saved his life. He is most remembered for writing the Rule of St. Benedict that, among other virtues, teaches humility. Inspired by this Rule we humbly offer St. Benedictís Winter Ale, a hand-crafted ale using generous amounts of dark roasted malts and the finest noble hops for a robust warming flavor.

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.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2012
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.

gregwilsonstl (1128) - Missouri, USA - MAR 14, 2012
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.
