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.

12 oz bottle: soggy malted aroma, light orangey colourcrisp flavour on a wet palate: bits of hops, orange juice, toasted malts, and grain. Another surprise from Point these folks make decent, drinkable beer

Another really good beer to come out of the point brewery. Slightly malty taste, very smooth.

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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2004
Clear, caramel coloration, a dark amber, with a nice, thick creamy off-white head. Aroma is, wel, too sweet and malty, with little balance, and an adjuct-y flintiness. Too much like the unpleasant swill smell Ive tried to avoid throughout my beer drinking career. Slight hops and mineraly-ness, but it falls flat, and lays there like a stinker. Taste? theres a malty feel, a caramel tone that swims around the palate, but it leaves as quick as it comes. Light body, short finish, little texture, too much carbonation at the front. Hollow, listless...a trace amount of flavor trickles back and flits down the throat, but its not a terribly happy sensation. This ones definitely for the lower rung, and will impress only those with small reserves of taste and infinite tolerance for blandness.

2004 Autumn Brew Review: Brown Coloring. Some Malts and Hops. Not Great for the Style

Autumn Brew Review 2004. Dark brown color. Slight malt aroma and taste. A touch of hops. Not bad, but much better Viennas out there.

This is...OK, although Im not a fan. Balanced and nicely hoppy, good aroma. I just couldnt get myself to drink much.

Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Mahogany/brown pour with a light head and some lacing. Roast and caramel malts with a small touch of hops. Some lagerish qualities. The flavor mimics the aroma but there is more roast and maltiness. It reminds me of fresh wort. The palate was odd, slightly tangy. I liked it.

Pellucid bronze with some white sticky head & some lacing. The aroma is good, some spicy caramel & cinnamon with light hops, good malt complex body. The flavor is very balanced with lots of malt & only a touch of sweetness & bitterness in the tail. Very malty amber, good.Thanks Falconseye!
