2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

This poured a copper color with a white head. The aroma is nutmeg, caramel, and cherries. Flavor is malty with a strong caramel and nutmeg presence. The finish is sweet with some spices present. Palate is a bit thin. Overall its pretty good.

Aroma is of caramel malt and banana bread. Very malty taste, nutty, and a touch of that banana bread in the aroma. Pretty smooth. Sweet.

Nice color to it. A little watery but still pretty enjoyable. Nice finish to it. Spices very apparent as it goes down. Wish I had more of this one. Not the best winter beer out there but enjoyable. Much better than the Leinies winter offering.

12 oz. Clear dark copper with a lasting film of foam. Nose is chocolate-dipped banana, clove, and light lacquer. Flavor is banana bread, molasses, clove and toasted walnut. Light body is fizzy and to the sweet side, but balanced by a dryish finish. Not a bad; but neither a great, dunkel hefeweissen. Thatís the jovial attitude Iíll take this one on with; and hope that someone was mistaken (or perhaps joking) in categorizing this one as an "English Strong".

I was very surprised when I tried this. I expected more of a classic winter seasonal. Instead I got a very malty, sweet brew. I was expecting more out of this one, especially from Point, who usually has really solid beers.

Exactly the type of winter beer I donít like. Heavy, cloying, syrupy. The spices were muddled with no "pop" whatsoever. Just kind of a heavy, gooey mess.
