Cask at Jimmy’s No. 43. Pretty looking and easy drinking, that’s for sure. Corny, grainy, horse blanket aroma, dusty closet. Flavor has a weird lactic acid nide. Kind of gooey, milky, all too grainy flavor, sweet, lactic, and thin. I put down the pint in about 5 sips though so that’s always good. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Cask at gingerman, poured a copper hue with a large frothy bone color head that had great retention. Aroma had strong caramel notes with some hops. Flavor had good balance between caramel notes and bittering hops.Did not get much of a cask note to it but carbonation was on the low side. Smooth throughout and a good beer.

Draft at waterfront. Copper. Too hoppy and not wel balanced IMO, I just have a hard time with Blue point in general and this is no exception. joekinty (263) - rockledge, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2008
lots of c hops in this beer tasted really good balanced well the hops and malts JCastner (112) - New York, USA - AUG 31, 2008
Poured a light copper with an off white head. Aroma is of some English hops though I am sure Cascades and Chinook were used. Bitterness on the front is standard for an American ESB with some of the maltiness found in the better examples of this style. Light body. Although, I’m not a fan of Blue Point this is a good effort.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a maroon color with a fresh hoppy aroma. Taste as you would expect is bitter but its not over the top- the smooth palate balances out. Aftertaste is bitter, most likely my favorite from Blue Point. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Growler from beer store. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, ripe cherries. Flavor a perfect blend of distinct sweet, bitter, and lightly tart points, earthy. Semi-dry, clean finish. Endlessly drinkable. Very nice. LilBeerDoctor (4197) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Growler. Pours a clear copper with a huge, thick, creamy and expanding tan head that leaves nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, toast, with flowery hops hiding in the background. Aroma of roasted malts, bitterness. Refreshing. Pretty good, more so if you like that toast/roast taste in your ESB. thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Tap @ the Brewery (from old notes) - pours a clear amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is heavily malt with a bit of a hop characteristic. Taste is almost completely malt, drowning out any other variations of sweetness or bitterness. Solid ESB but not spectacular. hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2008
very roasty, almost porter like chocolate flavors. Smooth with some carbonation, but not much. Thick mouthfeel.
