COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Point Einbock is an authentic Maibock Style Lager. There are many stories as to how Bock beers were named. Some assert the origins date back to the north-German town of Einbeck. Others maintain that "bock," the German word for "goat," relates to the "kick" of some bock beers. This seasonal Bock beer, offered only during the Spring, is hand-crafted utilizing the finest Munich and Vienna styles of specialty malts with a blend of Bavarian Hallertauer hops. With a German translation of "One-Bock," Point Einbock is one Bock you are sure to enjoy.

Sampled at Food and Froth. This here is a surprisingly good Point beer! Its a nice light Bock, without the caramel and toffee sometimes dominating others in an effort to be strong. Very sessionable.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a semi - hazy golden orange color with not much of a head and what was there quickly dissipated within less ten seconds. There wasnt any lacing. The smell had some light sweet German malts with a super light hop bitterness way underneath. The taste was mainly sweet and had a slight sweet cooked apple aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Overall, not a bad Maibock worthy of having again in Wisconsin Spring evenings.

Thanks Chelsea!! Snifter pour. Body is burnt orange colored with some off-white head and a good lacing that hung out for the duration of the brews life. Nose is mostly light caramel malt with some light yeast and spice in the background. Some grassy aromas too. Taste follows the same profile, with a more pale malt/light grain heavy flavor. Some slight sweetness followed by a dry finish. Somewhat thin. Not bad at all.

[3684-20110416] 355mL bottle. Light grass and field mud aroma has a hint of floral spice. Clear, medium orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Corn cob grains flavour. Medium body has just a little bitter boozy bite to it. Average, not sure Id enjoy a larger sample. (6/3/6/3/11) 2.9

Pale golden pour - thin white head. The aroma is slightly sweet and a little bit of lean malt. Softly sweet with a light honeyed flavour. A touch of white pepper. A bit clean and fairly sweet with some light alcohol. Its quite nice actually, if fairly simple.

Bottle 355 ml
Aroma: proper straight aroma typical to stronger pale lager. Good malts , mineral hop with slight dryness of alcohol. 6+
Appearance: bright golden with hint of amber. Clear. Bright medium plus white top. Proper again.
Palate / Taste: Medium plus bodied. Smooth malty base with toasty feel , hint of cardboard. Other than that straight malty lager. Not bad effort of this style.

2011-04-17. Crisp golden body with a foamy white head. 3+ Mild aroma, mild sweet pale malt, light alcohol. 6+ Flavour is simple, mild pale malt profile, sweet finish. 6+ Smooth average bodied palate. An enjoyably simple example of a style that is not one of my favorites. Bottle shared by Radek
