crazydiamond (48) - Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Beer is nice & clear and well (but not overly) carbonated. Has a nice, malty aroma. Color is more akin to a light brown ale, perhaps a bit too dark for an Amber. Flavor profile similar to a classic American Brown as well except it finishes dryer and cleaner as most lagers do. To me, lagering takes away from what might be a nice beer here, all complexity gone with that standard, smooth finish of a lager. To me, a smooth finish isn’t always desireable. But, I’m sitting in an airport waiting for a plane, so it’ll do....

jooilakon (189) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2017
330 ml bottle from Flavourly Ltd (with a Point Amber Lager (UK) label). Aromas of malts, plum, caramel. Small egg-shell white head, cloudy amber body. Taste is sweet malts, plum, honey. Aftertaste is sweet and fruity. Interesting and quite nice but not my style.

Atom (2482) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2017
12oz bottle pours a clear deep amber with a large khaki head. Sweet caramel and toffee aroma with dry mild hop spice. Taste of semi-sweet caramel toffee malt lager yeast and bitter grassy hops hit the palate before the malt gets too sweet, corn in there. Weird balance.

Clear amber color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Moderate intensity in the aroma. Medium body and an average carbonation level. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Bready and caramel malty flavor.

drpimento (3668) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Aroma, muted, is a mix of toasted malt, and solvents. Flavor has the toasted malt come out and become the best part of this beer. Body is a little off, bit thin, slightly over carbonated. Still, not a bad brew.

jjsint (3202) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle from Artisan Tap, Bedford. Golden brown and clear as a bell, with massive carbonation creating only a thin white head. Gummy aroma reminiscent of tree sap and envelope glue. Sweet resinous taste with slight earthy hop in the finish. I’m quite find of this, especially considering it isn’t one of my favourite styles.

3.2
ordybill (1799) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear reddish amber color, with a medium sized white head. The aroma is slightly nutty with some sweet maple. This is a very average beer.

Rhombic (136) - Elx, SPAIN - JAN 31, 2016
Bottle. [As Point Amber Lager] Pours amber with frothy, fully diminishing head. Floral hoppy aromas. A bit fruity and herbal. Watery. Mild. Not that much going on at all. What a shame. Some spiciness to it, a bit of hops and a dry finish. But not what I expected.
