hotstuff (5263) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Bottle. Poured a medium off-white head that was smooth and mostly diminished. Fair lacing, fine-medium sized bubbles, transparent, minimal carbonation, and an orange brown hue. Malty and sweet aroma. Very faint. Flavor was malty and some caramel. Overall, boring and unexciting. Smooth palate. A so-so brew.

Braudog (6841) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Poured bright red with a head that ran away like Carl Williams. Not much of an aroma, maybe light malt. The flavor is average caramel fare with a bit of breadiness. It’s an OK average brew.

2.7
Terminus (3716) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 6, 2005
bottle-purchased at woodmans in Rockford, IL pours a mahogony hue with small white head. citric hop aroma-some bready malts, but kinda smells artificial, like sam adams lager. Metallic hops, slight vanilla characteristic. short finish. Noble hops are present in the finish. Not to bad for a mass produced lager from WI.

2.5
Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2005
This is a palatable drink, but not much of a Vienna. It pours the right amber color. The thin white head soon dissipates. The aroma is sweet and malty, but pretty faint. The body is thin and too carbonated for a good Vienna. The malt flavoring is more like a premium lager, lacking in the richness that I’d expected. Crisp finish. Mediocre.

muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2004
12 oz bottle imbibed through the service of a Gouden Carolus glass. Red-tinted medium amber, thinnish decaying head...thick caramel malt, honey and a bit of wet pine in the nose...pretty nondescript body except for some charred-smoky character in the middle, sweetish oranginess for a bit...very light, rather sweet all the way through.

2.6
Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - DEC 9, 2004
Pours a reddish orange color, small whtie head. Aroma of fruity and spicy malt. Flavor is somewhat boring, a little hoppy kick at the end.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2004
This one has that distinct Point smell that you smell in the flagship. Flavor is slightly sweet caramel with a little hop flavor to carry it. Not overly bitter or malty, just middle of the road. Very drinkable beer for the average beer drinker.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 30, 2004
12 oz bottle: soggy malted aroma, light orangey colour…crisp flavour on a wet palate: bits of hops, orange juice, toasted malts, and grain. Another surprise from Point – these folks make decent, drinkable beer…

drunkenbum84 (73) - kenosha, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2004
Another really good beer to come out of the point brewery. Slightly malty taste, very smooth.

2.6
JoeM500 (1909) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 18, 2004
GLBF bottle sample: Reddish brown, thin, watery. Smoket caramel nose, sour suggestions. Taste is thin, although the malts are roasty and caramelly in their thinness. Quite watery at the finish.
