Draft at Peekskill Brewery. Pours a crystal clear gently browned amber with a thin white head. Aroma is almost empty apart from a really subtle caramel and malt scent. Flavor is malty, almost like a macro lager scaled up and done well, but still rather dull. Finish is slightly bitter, and grainy. Drinkable, but not memorable, and probably not something I would wish to drink again. dchmela (3084) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2008
On tap throughout Long Island. Pours a nice amber color with an off white head. Slight malt and touch of hop aroma. Nice easy drinking malt body with a touch of roasted malt and hop bitterness. Decent easy drinking beer. mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - DEC 22, 2008

bottle poured a light amber color with a thin white head. aroma is light in the malt department, some pilsner yeast, and faint sweetness. mouth feel is thin with high carbonation. flavor is somewhat bitter, mild hops creep in, and some minerals. finish has some lingering bitterness. mgoy (344) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2008
Blue Point Toasted Lager is a clear bronze color with a nicely formed light mocha head. The aroma is bitter and a bit gritty while the taste is malty with a full but non-descript finish.

Pours a nice amber/copper color with a finger and a half of fluffy, creamy looking head. A very clean and clear liquid that invites with such a gorgeous looking beer. Light toasted malt aroma with a faint hint of hops and [wait for it, wait for it] everything else. the aroma coming from my glass is pretty much like as useless as a ketchup popsicle is to a woman wearing white gloves. Very crisp and clean but hardly worth the price of admission. Some decent toasted flavors hidden beneath miles and miles of nothingness. It’s medium bodied but what’s the point when it has no really discerning flavors that make me really want another. This beer is as drinkable as coors light with twice the flavor and nearly twice the price. With such a low ABV I don’t think this beer has anything worth discussing.
Nuff said...it’s ok but I’ll pass...have a Boston Lager instead. kennydiaz (362) - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA - NOV 26, 2008
IT POURS A NICE COPPER COLOR WITH PLENTY OF CARBONATION. YOU CAN SMELL AND TASTE THE SMOKEY FLAVOR WITH OUT IT BEING OVER BEARING LIKE I HAVE HAD IN SOME ENGLISH BEERS. thornecb (6062) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Pours deep amber into a shaker. Fluffy off-white head with good retention. Malt from front to back with a sour finish. durhambeer (2585) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2008
On tap at the oyster bar below Grand Central Station. I really liked this beer, particularly in with oysters. Golden with bubbly white head. Slight roasty/toasty grain flavor and definite hop presence. Great session beer. bsm80 (144) - Massapequa Park, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Nice golden to amber pour with a fizzling head. I find it quite refreshing, toasty-malt flavor, enjoyable aftertaste.
